It’s certainly taken us a while, but it seems like the world is finally waking up to the adverse effects that our current energy sources are having on our planet. Now, more than ever, we are seeing individuals and businesses investing in renewable, and sustainable energy sources for their business.
Solar power is the most affordable, effective, and efficient way for everyday citizens to begin offsetting their carbon footprint, and businesses too aren’t likely to find a better alternative.
Is Your Commercial Solar Power System Cost Worth It?
The rising costs of electricity tariffs and the increasing affordability of solar panels has added to their popularity, that said, they still aren’t cheap and high-quality installation does cost a sizeable amount. Small systems have become more accessible for working-class Australians, and they now make up a large percentage of our solar energy usage population. However, commercial systems are often a huge undertaking and many business owner wonder if it is worth investing in commercial solar panels given the cost.
While the installation costs can be daunting, as experts in the solar industry, we are happy to let you know that the benefits of installing solar power systems for your business far out weight the costs.
From marketing and brand image to energy utlisation costs and ROI, there are many benefits to commercial solar systems that you should consider when trying to make this very important business decision.
Benefits of Commercial Solar Systems for your Business
When making decisions for your business, you have to think of how it could potentially impact your bottom line, and whether it’s worth the amount of money spent. Return on Investment (ROI) is an essential aspect of making any big monetary decisions, and luckily for you, solar power has got a really great ROI.
Commercial solar system costs (especially installation) is what put most business owner off investing in solar panels. However, studies conducted show that solar panels pay for themselves within a few years (dependant on a number of variables). This along with tax rebates and utility savings make it a pretty solid investment choice.
Reduced utility costs
Businesses, no matter how big or small, have generally higher electricity costs than residential homes. This is largely down to a higher number of people using electricity, or high operational costs for machinery etc. By installing commercial solar panels, you will be able to greatly reduce, and in some cases, completely eliminate your electricity bill. Given the unbelievable high tariffs that Australian businesses are currently paying – this could make a huge difference to your operating costs.
Incentives and rebates
Although it varies from state to state, and country to country, most governments have some sort of incentive or tax rebate that is employed for companies that use solar power. Many states allow companies to write off some tax under tax incentives, and in others, extra energy produced by companies will be purchased and put back into the grid. So not only can you save money with commercial solar panels, you could actually save money.
Believe it or not, solar panels and systems are a blessing for your marketing department and can be used as excellent PR material. More consumers are aware of the effect that we are having on the planet, and are therefore much more likely to align wit a company that has a ‘green conscious’. Employees too, are more likely to accept a job offer or stay with a company that is planning for the future in a sustainable manner.
