Pre-purchase agreement
You also have the option of a pre-purchase agreement. It’s a form of financing which means that you pay nothing up front for your system. A bonus with this set-up is if the price of energy goes up, your payments will remain the same, giving you a huge return on investment.

The right system for your business

The chart above has been designed as a guide only. A range of factors need to be considered, including the size of your roof, what time of the day your business uses the majority of its energy, and future circumstances.

If you’re about to go through a period of growth, you should choose the size of your solar system with your future circumstances in mind. It’s much easier and more cost effective to install a larger size commercial solar system now, than it is to expand later.

Energy audit
With an energy audit we can reduce your savings even more by changing the way you use energy and helping you become more efficient.

Demand charges 

When you’re installing solar it’s important to take into account demand charges. Larger commercial companies have capped demand charges, which means if you go over by even 1kW you can be charged thousands of dollars a day. We’ll help you reduce these peak demand penalties as much as possible with the right solar panels and power storage systems.

Our expert energy consultants will recommend a system size based on your business’s energy usage.
