Starting a PV business

The opportunity to build PV businesses attracts a huge number of new entrants; but few succeed.

Whilst other companies offer advice and guidance to build businesses on a generic basis, only SolarBusinessServices can guide you with PV industry experience that spans twenty years. With the benefit of hindsight, we’ve seen it all tried before.

We have worked in the PV manufacturing industry, so we understand the manufacturing supply chain like few others. But we aren’t from an ivory tower; we have installed all forms of renewable technologies,  lived and worked with it too.

We know what it’s like to be in big business,  small business and how to walk the halls of Parliament and we have advised countless companies on how to avoid the pitfalls in our industry.

We provide valuable intelligence and forecast reports, so we understand where the industry is headed and who you will compete with better than most.

If you are considering starting your own PV business, stop right now.

Pick up the phone and talk to us.

It might just be the smartest thing you ever did.

      Hi Rene

      Wow, great to hear from you all the way over there in the Caribbean!

      The way I look at solar businesses is like a puzzle; a number of key pieces have to fit together and compliment each other for it to be effective. IN your case I would guess the key issues are supply chain, affordability and understanding the needs of the consumers who might purchase. I did a bit of research and found the Aqualectric site here which has some good information; seems they are supportive of solar energy and wind connections?

      Hi Kayla

      Do you mean a solar recharging station for electric cars? Great idea! Unfortunately, there aren’t many on the road yet (around 100 in all of Australia probably?) but its growing fast and electric motorcycles too.

      Staring point would be to research where most of the electric cars have been sold and put your solar station there where you will have most customers. Take a look at what Elon Musk is doing in the US with his fast charging stations; very cool.

    G’day Nigel,

    I’m in the process of setting up a solar company specialising chargers for mobile devices.
    I have recently moved down from QLD to pursue the project and would love to catch up for a chat!
    If you could get back in contact with me it would be greatly appreciated.

    Look forward to your reply,
    Cheers mate.

    Hi Nigel,
    I am permanently relocating to Australia soon and want to start my own Solar PV business. I am open to location including Australia and New Zealand. After doing some basic research I have concerns related the RET review and its impact to small businesses, how much investment is needed and the startup & accreditation procedures. How can you help in this case?
