Benefits of solar power

Beyond the obvious advantage of generating your own electricity, solar power has many benefits:

  • Solar power works when you do - use the free electricity generated during day-time work hours (e.g. 9am - 5pm).
  • Solar power works when businesses typically pay the most for .electricity – peak solar power generation usually occurs in peak and shoulder electricity periods.
  • Possible depreciation and company tax benefits.
  • Electricity that is clean, renewable and sustainable.
  • A chance to improve the value and rental attractiveness of your building.
  • Helps your buildings Green Star rating and/or NABERS (National Australian Built Environment Rating System) rating.
  • Silent operation.
  • No moving parts and very little ongoing maintenance.

Financial benefits

You could realise substantial savings by installing a solar power system.

This example shows the electricity consumption profile for a business in Sydney who is currently paying 21c/kWh for electricity:

Average consumption 125kW hours per day or 45,625kW hours a year
Electricity cost $9,581.25 per annum
Electricity consumption During daylight hours
Operating times  6 days per week

Based on this, we recommended the following system:

System size 20kW
Number of 250W panels 80
Roof space required 220m
Solar generation 78 kWh or 28,470 kWh per year
% of total consumption 62.4%
Estimated savings per year
(assuming that all the electricity generated by the system is used by the business)
