SYSTEM SIZING

Business is challenging enough without having to worry about reliable electricity. We understand that an investment in mypower24 must make good commercial and operational sense. That is why we will work with you to correctly size your system, for best results and return on investment.

Battery-only? Or solar PV plus battery?

We will assess your site for suitability for rooftop solar PV. We will also provide accurate estimates of the expected generation from a PV system.

Next, we will determine your critical and non-critical electrical loads and recommend a battery system to meet your needs and fit your budget. To help you make the right decision, we will also provide a detailed return-on-investment analysis.
