How does it work?

At the Australian Energy Foundation, we have over 20 years of experience helping businesses make informed decisions about their energy costs. Our dedicated business advisors are here to support you through the whole process.

Step 1 - Free solar feasibility assessment

In your initial consultation, we will assess your energy bills and conduct a free solar feasibility assessment to see if community-funded solar is suitable for your business.

Step 2 - Contract is signed

If solar is right for you, we'll provide you with an assessment of how much you can save.

Step 3 - Major publicity event

We'll engage with the community and organise publicity and media for your big event, showcasing your business as a sustainability leader.

Step 4 - System is installed

Once we've generated the funds from the community, we'll install the system on your business. So you can start reducing your electricity costs from day one without any upfront cost.

Step 5 - Enjoy the savings and connect with your customers

You make repayments from a portion of your savings and once it's paid off you own the system outright and enjoy the savings.
