Installing a CGS Commercial Solar PV System at your premises will allow you to generate clean, renewable green energy for years to come – well beyond the 25 year warranty period on the panels. A Solar PV system will improve your energy efficiency NABERs/Greenstar rating which as a result will increase the value of your building.
A Solar PV System can help your business directly reduce its carbon emissions. Electricity generated from a Solar System produces no carbon emissions. The fact that it is generated “on site” with no transmission losses means it offsets even greater than it generates.
While cost is the most significant factor in purchasing, the price of solar power has dropped dramatically over the last 24 months, while electricity prices continue to skyrocket. For many years to come, a Solar PV System will reduce your businesses electricity bill, allowing your business to become power independent and hedge your business against the rising cost of electricity.
You can generate electricity at a lower cost than purchasing from a utility provider. If you are paying more than 25c/kWh for your daytime electricity usage, a system sized to your daytime load will generally provide a payback period between 4 and 6 years. In the long term this translates to a huge reduction in your medium to long term operational costs and the electricity you generate is essentially free.
