Commercial Solar

Commercial solar makes good business sense

There are just so many reasons why it makes good business sense to invest in commercial solar power.

  • Dramatic reduction in energy costs 
  • Reduce your overheads both now and into the future
  • Rapid and generous return on investment
  • Access to free and clean energy from the sun
  • Reduction of your business’s carbon footprint
  • Future-proofing your business against rising electricity costs
  • Ensuring your business is battery ready
  • Adding dollars to your bottom line
  • Taking advantage of multiple government Incentives

In fact, commercial solar power is even more efficient than domestic solar power because businesses consume the majority of their power between the hours of 9-5, which is when the sun’s rays are at their strongest.

There’s never been a better time to invest in commercial solar


If you’re a business owner with an annual turnover of less than $500 million did you know that you can take advantage of several incentives from the Australian Government?

The Backing Business Investment rewards you for investing in commercial solar before June 30 2021, letting you deduct 50% of your investment from your tax return and apply normal depreciation to the other 50%.

And depending on the size of the commercial solar power system you invest in you may also be entitled to claim either Small Scale Technology Certificates (SCTs) or Large Scale Generation Certificates (LGCs) that can then be sold to recoup a portion of your cost of purchasing and installing the commercial solar system, effectively lowering the cost of your solar power even further.

Commercial solar for landlords and for business owners who lease

Regardless of whether you’re a landlord or a business owner there are many advantages to installing commercial solar.

If you’re a landlord who decides to invest in commercial solar you will not only make your premises more attractive to tenants who will want to stay longer... but you can often charge more in rent. This increase in rental income will help pay for your investment in solar which has a payback period of an average of 3-5 years, after which you’ll enjoy an increase in profit. You’ll also enjoy the benefits of depreciation as well as other incentives from the Australian Government.

Even if you’re a business owner who leases their premises, paying for solar on a commercial lease makes sense, especially if your lease is 5 years or even more. Power is often one the the largest business expenses and with an investment in commercial solar you’ll experience immediate savings on your energy consumption and enjoy tax rebates, as well as the benefits of depreciation as the other incentives from the Australian Government.
