Solar Power is good for business

Solar power is no longer “alternative”, but a mainstream, reliable power option, however an incorrectly sized & installed systems may have little cost benefit.  We are experts at designing the most cost effective solutions for businesses so you know what to expect.

ROI - not the full picture for Solar

Standard ROI calculations are not quite relevant to solar – as you are spending the money anyway on current bills – so it’s a diversion of funds from the power retailer to you paying off your own generation plant. 

Solar is an opperational cost so loans and leases are tax deductable.  Commercial systems commonly see a 5 year or better Return on Investment, however these systems with low rate solar loans only now available, can be set up as cash positive meaning that there is no outlay, you are paying off a system and saving money.compared to your power bills. This is not therefore an investment, it does outline the opportunity of choosing the highest quality components and management team to design and manage your install. Without the high rebates we are now seeing, most systems would be cash neutral or slightly cash negative untill the system is paid off.

BTS News: Power companies trying to talk us out of solar...

A response from *ed energy recently for one of their customers enquiring about solar for their new property:

" Due to the poultry 6c feed in tarrif, it's just not worth it now, stay with mains electricity"    

Off course they are going to talk us out of solar. each 5kw system generates 7,000kw per year that they can't charge us for, so who should we be listening to ?  

Solar systems are seeing 25% to 30% ROI right now and are designed not to export to the grid, so the Feed in Tariff rate is not even factored in for the Return on Investment. There is no need to even choose cheap or low quality systems to still achieve an amazing return for your outlay. The cost of providing your own power with Solar overtime is around 6c/kW/hr. This is not indexed of course and not subject to price rises, so represents a lower and more stable cost of production to your business.

How much have our bills gone up in the last ten years ?

Lynne Chester from the Sydney University has tallied the figures in her Electricity Privatisation white paper:  Victoria has risen 103%, Nsw 115% and Queensland 125%. At these rates, Victoria could be at 60c/kw within ten years which is aligned with the power rates in many Asian country's, and where our government wants us to be for tax revenue.   It's our choice to reduce our own cost of living, or to increase retailer profits and support burning brown coal - which is what we are doing every time we pay a power bill in Victoria.
