Who are we?

SEM Solar is the retail branch developed by Spectrum EM – Future Energy Management.

Our business focuses on existing electrical products and how we can transition to new and more efficient technologies.

 

WHY THE SOLAR INDUSTRY?

We believe solar is fast becoming the leader in energy production and will continue to surpass the primitive fossil fuel industry.
It is essential that we all have a positive impact on our environment. Utilizing solar can reverse the negative impacts
stemming from the industrial revolution.

how can this benefit you?

All of the information talks about the features that set us apart, but doesn't really make it clear.

We understand what makes for a bad experience for a home owner and have set out to eliminate these all together.
No half arsed sub-contractors working only for personal gain, no sales reps aggressively pushing for that commission, leaving you at risk of investing in a sub standard system.  Potentially leaving you in a endless loop when you require follow up service.

If you want an engaging experience met with honest and educated tradesman who are judged on the quality of their work, consider our team.  

Clients are invited to continue engaging with us as we offer new technology into the market place, keeping them educated and up to date.

how are we different?

The SEM Solar retail model has been developed by our own tradesman in the industry.  Our business is vertically integrated, built up from the on-site technicians.  So much of this industry continues to process clients to meet quota, using manipulative sales tactics for short term gain.  

We have removed the need for outsourcing sub-contractors and provide our clientele with the respect they deserve, offering our lead designer as their point of contact over an uneducated sales rep.

what is it, we do?

SEM Solar offers personalized knowledge and advice to engage every client.  We aim to develop a trusting relationship with our client base to ensure we can be greeted at your door with a smile and be happy to refer us on credibility alone.

Not only are we a solar retailer, but we design and install all of our own work.  our services also extend to general maintenance and repairs.  Yet solar is just the tip of the iceberg as we look to the years ahead.  

As the battery market becomes more viable for the average home owner, our team will begin offering products to those suited to the application.  For the interim, we offer data logging applications for accurate system sizing and general household electrical services such as LED lighting upgrades.

Case Study


 

Hamilton Hill - Western Australia

 


1- SUMMARY 

The purpose of this study is to reflect on how actively engaging the client and putting in the extra effort can result in a desired outcome for both parties.  The project itself consisted of two separate barrel style roof sections sitting approximately 6-8 metres above ground level.  Fortunately after approaching the client, it was discovered that they had in-fact designed the building, which made discussions more helpful as we developed a procedure.

The client had previously had quotes to erect scaffolding systems around the structure to complete the necessary works which cost more than the installation alone.  This proposal came from a previous retailer’s site visit, but without thoroughly reviewing the structure as a whole.  Our aim was to provide the best assistance possible to develop an installation method that would be both safe and financially feasible for the client.

2 - FINDINGS

The most obvious issue we faced was the unique shape of the structure and the limited access to the usable surface.  Cable access also had to be considered due to the unique structures and aesthetic appeal.  We discussed such concepts;

  • Elevated work platform
  • Extension ladder access
  • Temporary structures

3 - DISCUSSION

The building was situated on a rear battle-axe block with limited ground access.  The project had to be aesthetically pleasing, but at the same time, practical in design.  Safety is paramount in any work environment but understandably must be considered within the financial boundaries.  The initial proposal to erect scaffolding was out of the question to meet the client’s budget.  Utilising an EWP was met with limited ground access and overhead services.  Use of extension ladders is cost effective, yet time consuming and creates unnecessary risk for the workers.

4 - CONCLUSION

Utilising the site drawings we were able to develop an excellent design to incorporate the practical needs of an efficient system and, at the same time, use the building’s internal structure to produce the aesthetic appeal the client sought.  We found after ongoing discussions with the client and regular reference to site plans, all previously proposed installation methods fell short of an acceptable and safe procedure. 

5 - RECOMMENDATIONS

Fortunately due to my personal background in rigging, I was able to offer an alternative approach using ropes and anchor points.  This would allow the team to not only work safely, but provide a service that was non-invasive to the client and their home.  Through discussion amongst team members and review of site plans, a plan was created to implement anchorage points at key tie locations across the structure.

6 - implementation

The rated anchoring systems were mounted by a qualified rigger at agreed points.  These allowed the team to scale the entire work area safely and efficiently.  Through the use of these anchorage and ropes systems, the team was able to easily install the panel mounting system within the allocated installation window with ease.  An additional day was suggested to allow for a slower paced installation, but due to the correct planning and design, the team completed ahead of schedule.

The extra man hours and safety equipment was quoted as an additional $1,100.  This figure may look excessive but relative to the proposed scaffolding system this method was a fraction of that cost, at almost 1/8th the price.
