Now, it’s no secret that large-scale commercial organisations across Australia are investing in solar power installations to save money. However, they have the capital to do so confidently and quickly, so what about small businesses like yours?
Surprisingly, although solar power installations may be a daunting investment initially, their cost has dropped by 82 per cent since 2010 and the ROI is astounding. Commercial solar systems pay for themselves quite quickly. In sun-saturated QLD, you can expect your investment to be paid back in full within four to six years!
Solar power truly is the electrical lifeline SMEs need amidst the sea of financial struggle brought about by COVID-19. In fact, a commercial solar panel installation on your property will help you save money in several ways.
Renewable energy sources, such as solar power, are helping Australia reduce its impact on the environment by reducing the need for burning harmful fossil fuels. As solar power is generated from the ever-replenishing sun, it’s the low hanging fruit our country needs now. It limits our dependence on imported fuels and creates jobs in manufacturing, installations, and so on.
For these reasons, several initiatives have been developed to make solar power more accessible to SMEs like yours. For example, solar feed-in-tariffs will pay for any excess power generated by small-scale solar PV systems that are connected to the National Energy Market grid.
You will not only obliterate rising electricity bills and your carbon footprint, but be able to sell any excess electricity by feeding it back into the grid – a potential life-saver considering commercial properties are perpetually power-hungry.
Small-Scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES)
Solar power is so effective, environmentally-conscious, and economical that the Australian Government is offering financial help to mitigate the purchase and installation costs of small-scale solar systems under it’s SRES.
By installing solar PV panels, you’ll be able to create Small-Scale Technology Certificates (STCs), which determine the amount that is deducted from the total costs. How many STCs your commercial property can create depends on the amount of solar power produced or electricity consumption reduced.
Free Source Of Future Electricity
Solar power is generated from and continuously replenished by the sun. So as long as the sun is still shining, you will have a reliable, free source of energy. And if it stops shining, you’ll have other things to worry about! Considering Australia has the highest solar radiation per square metre in the world, the return for your business is tenfold.
Gone are the days of electricity bills and costly downtimes during power outages! Commercial properties like yours will be able to generate their own clean, renewable energy through solar power systems that require minimal maintenance services – if any at all. Notably, your costs will be cut for years as the efficiency of solar energy generation only declines after 25 to 30 years!
The potential for solar systems to save and make your business money in the long run are proven and indisputable. However, to enjoy this ROI, you need to hire experienced specialists for commercial solar panel installation.
