During sunlight hours, often between 7 am – 7 pm depending on the time of year, energy can be generated from the sun and utilised through a professionally installed solar panel system.
As most businesses follow the 9 – 5 work day and operate mostly within daylight hours, energy will be drawn from the solar panel system and grid which in the long run will dramatically reduce electricity costs for your business.
Solar panel systems for commercial businesses are becoming more accessible than ever, with ongoing government support.
These initiatives come in the form of finance options like ASM Money, a partner of Perth Solar Force, which provides brokerage options for the installation of commercial solar systems.
For commercial businesses installing a small-scale renewable energy system, like that of rooftop solar panels, they may be eligible for the Federal Government’s Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme. By obtaining a small-scale technology certificate (STC), the STC are then redeemed for a dollar value that can be deducted off the cost of the system installation.
Large-scale Generation Certificates are for commercial systems over 100kW and are annually distributed. They act the same as the STC, offering a redeemable amount each year, however are not eligible for an upfront discount on costs and installation of your solar panel system.
Installation of solar panels will reduce greenhouse gas emissions for your business making it a greener and more environmentally attractive option. Additionally, adding solar panels to the roof of your commercial property is a fantastic step in building your company’s corporate green image and achieving its sustainability goals.
