Commercial Solar Power
The four key benefits for businesses who install solar power are:
- Lower power costs leading to increased profit;
- Avoid unexpected expenses caused by increasing electricity prices;
- Lower carbon output and meet public demand for environmentally conscious businesses;
- Potential tax advantages.
How much can businesses save?
That depends on your business size, premises, and power use. We’ll be able to accurately estimate your power savings after visiting your business, getting on your roof and talking to you about your power usage.
You can also use Business Queensland’s solar savings calculator to estimate your savings. However, our estimate should give you a more accurate figure because it will be based on roof space and orientation which affects how much solar power you can generate.
How you save money
Generally, small businesses and medium-sized commercial enterprises will make the greatest savings.
Here’s how a small business can save money:
The size of your solar power system will depend on the how much electricity you need to generate, the size of your roof and your investment budget. We can discuss these variables with you and help you work out what system size is best.
We recommend you arrange a free no obligation visit and assessment from one of our experts to get a clear idea of the options
The cost of installing a solar system will include:
As well as this initial investment you should also consider maintenance requirements. For example, inverters usually need to be replaced every five to ten years.
We recommend you get quotes from several companies and compare them carefully so you understand exactly what you’re paying for.
These are our top tips:
Under the government’s Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme, most small to medium businesses are eligible for small-scale technology certificates. These contribute to the cost of your solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and are only valid if you use an accredited solar company like Home and Energy.
The Small-scale technology certificates are created once your solar system has been installed. We’ll work out how much you’re eligible for based on the amount of solar energy you’ll be using and deduct that from your quote.
You won’t have to deal with applications or any bureaucracy because we’ll take care of that for you.
