Ways To Fund Your Commercial Solar System

Government Rebates

In Australia, the Government incentives you to switch to commercial solar with Business Solar Rebates that allow your business to generate Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). These certificates can be sold to energy producers, who use them to meet their Government-mandated carbon targets.

How many RECs you can generate is based on the size of your commercial solar system. These RECs (STCs and LGCs) need to be verified through the REC Registry and traded on a marketplace.

At Kuga Electrical, we make it easy for you to get the immediate benefit of RECs by calculating how much revenue they will generate and giving you a massive upfront discount on your solar installation.

ACT FAST: The government is phasing out STCs and LGCs at the end of 2030, and the value of both certificates lowers every year. This means that you need to act fast to get the maximum possible discount and ROI on your solar installation.

Explore our Solar Funding Options

Apart from helping you leverage Government incentives, KUGA Electrical has a range of funding options your business can take advantage of to make the switch to renewable energy.

Capital Purchase

CAPEX Price is site-inspection dependent. ROI typically ranges from less than 3 years for 100kW to 2-5 years for larger setups. Commercial solar costs are at a record low, ensuring attractive returns for businesses.

Power Purchase

Commercial Solar FAQs

A commercial solar system is a large-scale solar power setup used by businesses and organisations to generate electricity. These systems are typically larger and more powerful than residential solar systems and are designed to meet the higher energy demands of commercial operations.

The best solar system for commercial use would depend on the specific needs of the business, including energy consumption, available space for installation, and budget. Systems should be efficient, cost-effective, and durable.

The power output of commercial solar panels varies, but they are more powerful than residential panels. Commercial solar panels can range from a few kilowatts to several hundred kilowatts in capacity.

The size of a 100kW solar system depends on the efficiency and physical size of the solar panels used. Generally, this size of system would require a significant amount of space, often several hundred square meters.

The solar panels generally have a lifespan of around 25-30 years.

Oversizing a solar system can be beneficial in cases where the energy can be stored or sold back to the grid. However, it also means a higher initial investment.

Yes, commercial solar panels need to be cleaned regularly to maintain their efficiency. Dust, debris, and other materials can accumulate on the panels and block sunlight, reducing their effectiveness.
