Solar Power for Business - A Secure Investment
Businesses all over Gippsland are realising the benefits of installing solar power on their business or factory. Just some of the reasons why solar power for business makes sense:
A secure investment
Installing solar power on your business is one of the safest ways to invest your hard-earned cashflow. The only risk to your solar power investment would be: the price of electricity going DOWN in the future (not likely!), or your solar power system components failing, and you can’t reach the manufacturer or supplier. This is the key reason why we only install premium quality components for our systems and our business track record is very sound.
Financial benefit every year into the future
Invest in solar power now, and receive a financial return every year for 25 to 30 years. Typically a commercial solar power system takes four to five years to pay for itself. After that, you get free electricity from the sun for the next 20 years, and you have also added value to your business by installing the system.
Commercial finance options
Gippsland Solar is also able to offer commercial solar finance packages. In most cases your monthly repayments are less than your monthly savings from solar! We can provide finance for system between $5,000 and $500,000. Speak to us today for more information.
Use your solar power during the day
This is the primary reason that commercial solar power makes sense. Solar power provides the greatest return on investment when you use the solar power as it is being produced (ie during sunlight hours). This is perfect for most businesses, as they will be using the solar power in their business when it is produced. If you use the solar power in your business and it never makes it to the grid, you will always receive the full retail price for your solar power, and no future changes in government policy will ever affect you.
Gippsland Solar is well established in the large-scale sector, and our large-scale Solar projects division is now the largest area of our business.

What does this mean for my business?
With hundreds of existing systems installed across Gippsland, and connected to a remote monitoring program, we can show you the savings from any number of systems already installed. This gives you complete peace of mind that the savings really are as good as we promise, and you are also welcome to speak with some of our existing happy business clients.
How do I proceed from here?
Gippsland Solar provides a full in-house consultation, and we go above and beyond simply installing the system. Our full package includes:
Step 1 – We sit down with you at your business, analyse your power bills and determine the right size system for you.
Step 2 – We provide a comprehensive tailored proposal, with customised performance figures, payback graphs and return-on-investment figures over the life of the system.
Step 3 – We organise commercial finance through one of our licensed financial partners. In most cases, you will save more on your power bill per month than your total monthly repayments anyway! CASHFLOW POSITIVE FROM DAY ONE!
Step 4 – We liaise with the electricity distributor and manage the application for the solar power pre-approval on your behalf. This is a very complicated procedure, but we manage the entire process for you.
Step 5 – Once the approval is granted, we arrange for the equipment to be delivered and installed by our commercial solar team. We also provide JSA’s, adhere to Working at Heights regulations, and ensure there is little or no impact on the operation of your business. We can also organise generator backup, or commission the system on weekends, if you don’t want the system commissioned during business hours.
Step 6 – Once the system is installed and inspected, we manage the solar meter application with your electricity retailer.
Step 7 – Once your solar meter is installed, we negotiate with various electricity retailers to make sure you are getting the best deal. Our extensive history and relationships with the electricity retailers means that we can usually save you a significant amount on the cost of your electricity. This extra step sets us apart from the competition, and further enhances the benefits of your solar power system.
