For the past few years, Australia has undergone a renewable energy revolution. In 2019, 96.5% of Tasmania’s power usage came from renewable energy. While South Australia gets 52.1% of its power from the same sources. Solar panels installed on the rooftops of residential and commercial buildings across Australia leads the way in this revolution.

Since a lot of customers have been asking Wide Span Sheds to include solar panel installation on their kit designs, they have happily decided to add it!

Solar panels add weight and pressure on a steel building, as well as an extra drag in windy conditions. And with that, your shed may require heavier purlins and thicker roof battens to support these solar panels. So if you’re considering installing solar panels on your building, Wide Span Sheds can engineer it to cope with these extra demands. 

Why should you consider adding solar panels to your steel sheds? Find out below.
