Commercial Solar Power Systems
Solar Power makes perfect sense for commercial premises as the majority of power is consumed during daylight hours. In many cases, commercial solar energy can be another way to increase
Small businesses will find that lighting, heating/air conditioning and computers make for a fairly consistent base load. Larger premises can add
Commercial solar systems are still grid tied, just larger, normally starting at 10kW, going up to several hundred kW’s. The system is designed specifically for your site based on load data which we log at your premises generally for up to 7 days. When installing a commercial solar system, it’s important to start by matching the system size to the load demand as best as possible, from there we can work with you to understand your load better and see what can be done to shift your load to better suit the production curve of the solar. Generally this will be done via ongoing monitoring of the load as well as the PV production.
Large commercvial solar systems aren’t cheap and often we find business owners feel the money would provide better returns if it was invested in their business rather than a solar system. For this reason, we offer three supply options to accommodate different commercial streams.
We are happy to work with you to establish which is going to be the best option for your business.
Our outright purchased commercial solar systems are frequently achieving a 20% annual return on investment.
The Commercial Solar PV system is funded via our Lease company and a contract is entered into in the same way you would lease a vehicle.
The term and monthly payments are negotiable as is the option to lease to buy,
- No upfront capital cost
- The lease is a fixed cost every month, not affected by power production or usage
- Lease payments are a deductible expense just like your monthly power bill
- You effectively lock in or hedge the cost of a portion of your power for the term of the lease
- You do not retain ownership of the asset
- Overall savings will never equal that of an outright purchase
- You are committed to the installed technology for the term of the lease
