The Amanda Energy commercial solar installation process
At Amanda Energy, we take our commercial solar panel installation process very seriously.

It’s our aim throughout your commercial solar installation process to cause as little disruption to your business operations as possible.
What does the Amanda Energy commercial solar installation process involve?
1. Initial Consultation
In your initial solar installation consultation, our Solar Manager will start by gathering information about your business operations, and the level of power it requires. This involves visiting your work site and conducting a thorough physical assessment for:
- Solar exposure
- Possible modular mounting
- Structural issues
- Electrical interconnection options
Once we’ve determined the level of power your work site requires, and the kilowattage of solar energy needed, we begin drafting your agreement proposal. This proposal covers all financial aspects and the term length of your contract.
Once you’ve accepted and signed your proposal and contract, we begin the design of your solar system!
4. Plan Approval
During the design period, we’ll also be working with the necessary third parties to ensure all electrical interconnections are planned safely and possess the required certification to be installed. This includes applying for a Retailer Reference Number (RRN) from your current electricity retailer, usually taking 1 – 7 days. Once the RRN has been received, we apply for approval from Western Power to connect your system to the network. This stage takes approximately 3-4 weeks.
Once Western Power approves your solar system plans, your system will be delivered and installation will begin! Your commercial solar installation will involve:
- Our team of installers arriving at your work site at a designated time
- Complete safety checks and setup of harnesses, roof anchor points, and other general safety equipment
- Your mains power will be completely switched off for approximately 2 hours
- Your solar inverter will be mounted in an appropriate ground-level location, away from direct sunlight and excessive water exposure
- The cables and solar panels are installed
- Once installation is complete, your new commercial solar PV system will be commissioned, which means it’s checked and tested to make sure it’s defect-free and in perfect working order
How long does the solar installation process take?
The entire commercial solar installation process takes approximately 2-3 months, from accepting and signing the proposal to installation completion.
