Commercial Solar

As the price of electricity rises and consumer’s environmental awareness grows it makes good business sense for companies to install solar power. Being a green business will not only reduce operating costs but can be a fantastic source of public relations and a good marketing tool.

 Consumers can see your business is playing its part in the fight against climate change and this can give you an edge over your competitors.

By installing a solar power system, businesses can slash their power bills and reign in out of control electricity price rises.

Businesses are eligible for incentives under the Solar Credits Scheme meaning the upfront costs of installing a system are greatly reduced. A business may also be eligible for tax breaks that will return the capital invested at an even faster rate.

Meridian Solar will conduct a thorough feasibility study before embarking on any commercial solar project.

We begin with a discussion on what your business wants to achieve by installing a solar power system. We move on to an analysis of the current energy usage of the premises and a site inspection to investigate if any other energy saving measures could be implemented to save money.

We look at the structural integrity of the building and then develop system layouts along with associated cost estimates and energy savings data.

With no let up in electricity price rises, an investment in Solar Power will reduce your businesses operational costs, and increase your profits.

New Tax breaks

In the 2012-13 tax year, small businesses in Australia will be able to write off expenditure on assets up to the amount of $6500.

This ruling applies to businesses with a turnover of less than $2million dollars and can include the purchase of a solar power system.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a business to reduce some of its operating costs whilst announcing to its customers and the market, that they are serious about their environmental commitments.

Small businesses are also eligible for the solar credits program making an investment in solar even more attractive.
