Solar Energy for business and industrial customers can be a practical and an effective method of reducing energy costs whilst reducing an organisation’s environmental footprint. The benefits and payback of Solar Energy are justified purely on financial terms for majority of businesses, whilst for others it may come down to a combination of financial, marketing and environmental credentials that determine the investment decision.
You may be entitled to a renewable energy certificate from Australian government which can be traded to offset some of the installation costs.
Depending on a number of factors, solar feed-in tariffs are the price you could be paid for the excess electricity your system generates back into the grid.
As energy costs rise, the installation of a Solar System allows businesses to lock in some or all of their energy requirements at a fixed, predictable rate.
Every kW of Solar Power installed can reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions by more than 2 tons per annum, providing a measurable benefit to the global reduction of CO2.
How having green credentials can improve your image
Solar power could potentially deliver real cost savings to your business, regardless of the industry you’re in. Solar power may help improve your business’ green credentials, making your business more attractive to potential clients and employees, in addition to prospective tenants or buyers.
There are long-lasting benefits for your business.
Upfront rebates based on Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) or revenue from Large-scale Generation Certificates (LGCs) can help with the cost of installing solar. In some cases you may be eligible for tax incentives.
Display your commitment to the environment by implementing solar power. Solar Power is a visible way to show your clients you are committed to protecting to the environment.
