Solar for small to medium business
The eligibility requirement for the regional feed-in tariff is increasing to 30 kilowatts. This will allow more regional Queensland businesses to take advantage of solar and receive a fair payment for any excess electricity they export. Read more about these requirements.
The Queensland Government's target of 1 million solar rooftops—or 3000 megawatt—of installed solar capacity by 2020 means now is a great time to consider solar for your business.
The cost of installing solar photovoltaics has come down significantly in recent years and many Queensland businesses are already enjoying the benefits of solar power, including:
- reduced electricity costs (and increased bottom line)
- hedging against future electricity price rises
- reduced environmental footprint
- possible marketing advantages
- possible tax advantages.
If your business's monthly electricity bill is around $2,000–$5,000, you could save in excess of $7,000 per year in electricity costs by installing a solar system. Use our calculator to find out more.
