Australia is blessed with record levels of sun. Even our least sunny state, Tasmania, gets 193 days of sun each year while our sunniest, Queensland, gets an insane 270 sunny days every year. And for each of those days the sun blazes down for 7.5 hours on average. That amounts to 2,025 hours of sunlight every single year that you can convert into FREE sustainable energy to power your business with a solar system.
It’s so much energy that you won’t just see huge drops in your energy bills, you may even be able to sell your excess energy back to the grid for pure profit. In fact, with our smart financing solutions your system can be ROI positive from day one. Read More
Solar System for Business Use in Queensland
As experts in solar systems for business, we have seen our fair share of questions around them. This isn’t much of a surprise considering that solar power is still relatively new the energy game, but being misinformed or unknowledgeable can make people hesitant to invest in solar power and this is not great for us, as a business and as a planet. We need as many people to move over to solar to ensure that we are cutting down on our Greenhouse Gas Emissions – giving the planet the breathing room that it needs to survive.
Solar For Business: What You Need to Know
Solar panels for residential use have become increasingly popular over the last couple of years due to their accessibility, effectiveness and affordability. Luckily, business owners are also starting to take notice of this trend. As more and more businesses climb on the solar bandwagon – the more likely it is that we can help to save our planet.
Frequently Asked Questions
These are the most common questions we get about solar panels for business premises:
Can solar enhance my brand image?
Brand image is a massive part of any company’s success and thus it makes sense that business owners will be concerned about it. Truthfully though, when it comes to brand image, solar power is a huge benefit. By investing in solar, you are showing current and potential clients that you care about the planet and the future, and you can use the ‘green company’ tag in your marketing campaigns.
It doesn’t just help with your external brand image, but also on an internal scale. Employees are more likely to stay loyal to companies that plan for the future and are committed to a sustainable energy source for our planet.
Will commercial solar add to my property value?
If you ever think of selling your business, or simply moving premises, solar will undoubtedly add to the value of the property. Solar power is a growing trend all over the world, and with the obvious advantages such as utility cost reduction and tax rebates – companies are willing to pay top dollar to acquire a property where solar power is already in use.
What about winter? Are they still effective?
Luckily for us, Australia is blessed with its fair share of sunshine and this makes it the perfect spot for solar panels – yes – even in winter! Panels don’t need warmth to work, they just need the sun, and there’s plenty of sunny days to go around. More importantly than seasons, you just need to ensure your panels are placed far away from the shade and in direct line of sunlight – but that’s why we’re here!
How do I choose the right sized solar system for my business?
There are a number of factors that will impact the size of the solar system that you choose, and whether you want to have a large social impact, reduce your energy costs or go big enough to be completely energy independent – will have a bearing on what size you end up with.
