Own solar for no cost? Generate savings that can be cash positive from day one!
The standard tariffs for business electricity has doubled in the last 7 years. Fight back! Fight Green! Most businesses can have a solar generator that is cash positive from day one. The cost of solar electricity has decreased while electricity prices have increased so much that commercial solar generators are very cost effective for electricity consumed on site.
Amanda Energy will perform a detailed analysis and assessment looking at your electricity consumption profile, your available roof or ground space and your internal electrical infrastructure.
True analysis delivers real savings.
True analysis of savings require that the solar generation and historical electricity consumption of your business are matched in 30 minute intervals. This shows the effect of lunchtime breaks, weekends, seasonal variations and the like. The output of the panels decreases about 18% over 20 years. The installation angle of panels also effects output. The solar generator should be sized so nearly all solar generation is used on site at the time it is generated. Over-sizing can waste capital cost, while under-sizing is missed opportunity.
Amanda Energy make it easy.
With your consent, Amanda can download your past electricity use and fully analyse the true savings. Like any investment we need to consider the capital outlay, yield, payback period, net present value, internal rate of return, tax depreciation, funding options and other benefits of the investment tailored to your situation.
Can finance be cheaper than cash?
Take advantage of current tax rulings and use a solar “rent to own” facility. Solar depreciated over 20 years combined with low interest rates can deliver cash positive finance from day one.
Federal government rebates currently fund about 40% of the cost of a solar installation. The rebate amount varies with the market value of Small-scale Technology Certificates (STC) and Large-scale Generator Certificates (LGC). Claiming the rebate is time consuming and involves a registration process. Amanda makes it easy with a fixed price on your solar generator that includes the STC and LGC rebate.
Better business solar benefits
Your investment in solar can typically achieve an internal rate of return between 14% and 30% and increase the value of your property at the same time with improved Green Star and NABERS ratings.
While your brand enjoys a visual statement of your environmental conscience, there are other less obvious benefits. Roof shading by the solar panels acts as insulation, cooler during the day and warmer during the night. Solar generation can also reduce peak demand and lead to lower electricity prices in the future.
Get peace of mind knowing that by acting now you can hedge your business against increasing electricity prices with your solar generator’s 30 year lifespan. Plus help the environment… a 30kW system saves about 38.5 tonnes of CO² per year.
