Solar power is a good option for business

Many commercial businesses globally are choosing to source a portion or all of their electricity through solar. Saving money on operating expenses through reduced energy and demand charges is one of the key reasons to install solar. It also reduces your exposure to electricity price volatility and inflation.

Installing solar isn’t just a financial decision it’s an environmental, community and marketing decision, too. The benefits of your business “walking the talk” on renewable energy can be significant and solar is a very tangible and measureable commitment to the environment.

The benefits and payback of solar may be justified purely on financial terms for many businesses, whilst for others it will be a combination of financial, environmental and marketing benefits. An increasing number of New Zealand businesses already have or are planning to install a commercial solar system.

Is solar right for your business?

Deciding to go solar is a big commitment for any business owner. There are many factors that need to be taken into consideration before the final decision is made.

What is your main motivation for considering a solar system?

  • Lower long-term energy costs?
  • Support your corporate sustainability objectives?
  • Enhance your corporate/brand image?
  • Enhance staff and community engagement?
  • Demonstrate vision and leadership within your industry?
  • Increase tenant satisfaction (for property owners) and property values?

We can help you get a better understanding of how solar may benefit your organisation by evaluating the benefits of solar and can work with you on developing a business case by undertaking a detailed solar energy assessment.

Once we understand your business goals the next step is to carry out a solar assessment. The assessment will identify the most cost effective solar option to meet your specific needs.
