Introduction to solar for businesses

With many businesses using power during the day, when the sun is shining, solar power can help you use free energy straight from your roof.

According to the Climate Council, in 2018 almost half of all Australia’s large businesses were actively transitioning to solar with many also moving off the grid to battery storage. With energy bills 80% higher than a decade ago for small businesses, and gas prices three times more expensive than 5 years ago, businesses large and small are looking at solar for powering their business.

Here at the Australian Energy Foundation, we can help your business through the process to getting solar and saving money on energy.

Five reasons to go solar now:

  1. Increase your profits by reducing your costs
  2. Future proof your business against energy prices
  3. Get a return on your energy costs
  4. Don’t miss out on the government rebates for installing solar
  5. Do the right thing for the planet by generating clean, renewable energy
Solar has become more affordable in recent years, dropping in costs by 56% over the last 5 years making solar a good investment for many businesses.
