The benefits of a 100kW commercial solar system
There are numerous benefits to investing in a 100kW commercial solar system from DE Energy:
- Cost savings – One of the primary benefits of a solar system is the cost savings it provides. By generating your own solar power, you can reduce your business’s reliance on grid electricity and lower your energy bills.
- Reduced carbon footprint – Solar power is a clean, renewable energy source that produces zero emissions. By switching to solar power, your business can significantly reduce its carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable future.
- Increased property value – Installing a solar system can increase the value of your property and make it more attractive to potential buyers or tenants.
- Customization – DE Energy’s 100kW commercial solar systems can be customized to meet the specific needs of your business, including the size of your facility, your energy usage, and your budget.
- Financing options – DE Energy offers a range of financing options, including solar loans, power purchase agreements (PPAs), and leasing programs, to help businesses invest in solar power with minimal upfront costs.
- Government incentives – There are a number of government incentives available for businesses investing in solar power, including the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES) and the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target (LRET). These incentives can help reduce the cost of your solar system and provide a positive return on investment.
- Maintenance and support – DE Energy provides ongoing maintenance and support for its solar systems to ensure they are operating optimally and generating maximum energy savings.
- Performance monitoring – DE Energy’s solar systems come with performance monitoring software that allows businesses to track their energy usage and ensure their system is working efficiently.
- Energy independence – By generating your own solar power, you can become less reliant on the grid and reduce your exposure to volatile electricity prices. This can provide your business with greater energy independence and stability.
- Increased competitiveness – With rising energy costs and increasing pressure to reduce carbon emissions, businesses that invest in solar power can gain a competitive advantage over those that don’t. By demonstrating your commitment to sustainability and reducing your energy costs, you can attract environmentally conscious customers and differentiate yourself from your competitors.
- Positive environmental impact – Switching to solar power can have a significant positive impact on the environment. By reducing your business’s carbon footprint, you can help mitigate the effects of climate change and contribute to a more sustainable future for all.
- Long-term investment – A 100kW commercial solar system is a long-term investment that can provide your business with cost savings and other benefits for decades to come. With a typical lifespan of 25-30 years or more, a solar system can provide a stable source of energy and a predictable return on investment.
How 100kW commercial solar systems work
100kW commercial solar systems are designed to provide businesses with a reliable, cost-effective source of solar power. The systems consist of four main components: solar panels, inverters, racking, and monitoring systems.
Solar panels – The solar panels are the heart of the solar system. They are responsible for converting sunlight into DC (direct current) electricity. DE Energy uses high-quality solar panels made by reputable manufacturers to ensure optimal performance and durability.
Inverters – The inverters are responsible for converting the DC electricity generated by the solar panels into AC (alternating current) electricity that can be used by your business. DE Energy uses top-quality inverters that are designed to provide maximum efficiency and reliability.
Racking – The racking system holds the solar panels securely in place on your roof or ground-mount system. DE Energy uses durable racking systems that are engineered to withstand extreme weather conditions and provide optimal performance over the life of your system.
Monitoring systems – The monitoring systems provide real-time data on your system’s performance, including energy production, energy usage, and any potential issues. DE Energy uses advanced monitoring software that allows you to track your energy savings and ensure your system is operating at peak efficiency.
DE Energy’s installation process is designed to be fast, efficient, and minimally disruptive to your business operations. The process typically involves the following steps:
- Site assessment – DE Energy will conduct a detailed site assessment to determine the optimal size and location for your solar system.
- System design – DE Energy will design a custom solar system that meets the specific needs of your business.
- Installation – DE Energy’s team of experienced installers will install the solar panels, inverters, racking, and monitoring systems on your roof or ground-mount system.
- Commissioning – Once the system is installed, DE Energy will commission the system to ensure it is operating at maximum efficiency and performance.
DE Energy offers a range of financing options to help businesses invest in solar power with minimal upfront costs. These options include:
- Solar loans – DE Energy offers solar loans that allow businesses to finance their solar system over a period of 5-10 years. These loans typically have lower interest rates than traditional business loans and can provide a positive return on investment.
- Power purchase agreements (PPAs) – With a PPA, DE Energy owns and operates the solar system, and your business purchases the energy generated by the system at a predetermined rate. This can be a good option for businesses that want to invest in solar power but don’t want to take on the upfront costs of installation. (Not Available)
- Leasing programs – DE Energy also offers leasing programs that allow businesses to lease their solar system for a fixed period of time. This can be a good option for businesses that want to invest in solar power but don’t want to own the system outright. (Not Available)
There are several government incentives available for businesses that invest in solar power, including the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES) and the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target (LRET).
The SRES provides businesses with a financial incentive to install small-scale solar systems (up to 100kW). The incentive is based on the number of STCs (small-scale technology certificates) that your system is eligible for, which is determined by the size and location of your system.
The LRET provides businesses with a financial incentive to invest in large-scale renewable energy projects. Under the LRET, businesses can earn Large-scale Generation Certificates (LGCs) for the energy generated by their solar system. These certificates can be sold on the open market, providing a potential source of additional income for your business.
