Are you thinking about installing a solar power system for your company? Here are some of the top reasons why a PV system is a great investment for your business.
- Reduced electricity costs
Rising energy costs in Australia can mean a large expense for your business. Reducing your reliance on the grid can go a long way to cutting your electricity bill significantly. You’ll also be protected from volatility in power prices and utility rates, making it much easier to manage your costs.
Installing a solar system is a strategic business investment, as over a short amount of time the savings made on your energy bills will cover the costs of the install, leaving you to reap the benefits for many years to come.
- Reliable and low maintenance
A solar PV system requires very little maintenance and provides you with clean energy. They’re built to last, with every solar cell encased in specialised, tempered glass designed to withstand the elements. On average, solar systems are now guaranteed to last you 20 to 30
- Improve your brand image
Solar panels not only reduce energy bills in companies, but also their environmental impact. Every bit of energy produced by a solar array is displacing grid energy which historically, comes from coal or gas powered power stations. Considering that solar panels can last for up
to 25 years, the avoided nasty emissions are significant.
There is a current trend among consumers to support environmentally and socially
conscious businesses. Installing a solar system provides a strong visual statement for reducing your carbon footprint and protecting the environment, helping you tap into this
growing base of conscious customers.
- Take advantage of government rebates and incentives
The costs of installing a solar power system are made extremely manageable by the various federal and state government incentives on offer.
For example, state and territory governments run feed-in tariff schemes, where eligible businesses are paid for surplus energy that they produce. Information on regional feed-in tariff schemes can be found below:
The federal government also offers Small-Scale Technology Certificates (STCs), which are used to offer significant rebates to businesses for eligible installations of sustainable power systems. More information on this program can be found here.
