Capital Investment

This involves using your own funds to pay for the solar system upfront, allowing you to own the system outright and benefit from all the savings and incentives directly.

In a lease agreement, you pay a fixed monthly fee to use the solar energy system installed on your property, without owning the equipment, typically with little to no upfront costs. The term can be up to 7-10 years.

Under a PPA, a third party installs a solar system on your property and you purchase the power it produces at a predetermined rate, which is often lower than the local utility rate, without owning the system. Another benefit of this structure is the risks associate with owning and maintaining the system are outsourced.

With a loan, you borrow money to finance the purchase of your solar system, eventually owning the system once the loan is paid off, while taking advantage of the energy savings and potential upfront government rebates.

How do I determine the right size solar system for my business?

The optimal size of your solar system depends on several factors including your
electricity usage patterns, the available space for panels, and your budget. A
detailed analysis by a Huglo Solar consultant can help determine the most efficient
system size for your needs, ensuring you maximise your investment and meet your
energy goals.

Are there any government incentives for commercial solar installations?

Yes, businesses in the ACT and NSW can benefit from various government
incentives such as the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES), which offers
small-scale technology certificates (STCs) for eligible solar installations up to 100kW.
Additionally, the ACT Government occasionally offers grants and programs aimed at
encouraging renewable energy uptake among local businesses.

What are the benefits of installing a commercial solar system?

Installing a commercial solar system in the ACT and NSW offers numerous benefits,
including significant reductions in electricity bills, access to government incentives
and rebates, a decrease in carbon footprint, and an increase in property value. It
also demonstrates a commitment to sustainability, which can enhance your business’

Can my business sell excess solar energy back to the grid?

Yes, businesses in the ACT and NSW can sell excess solar energy back to the grid
through feed-in tariffs (FiT). The rates and conditions vary depending on your
electricity retailer, but Huglo Solar provide ongoing help with this task to ensure you
get the best value for your capital investment. The real benefit to businesses comes
in self-consumption to offset your grid usage.

What is the expected lifespan of a commercial solar system, and what maintenance is required?

Commercial solar systems typically have a lifespan of 25 to 30 years. Maintenance
requirements are relatively low, involving regular inspections, cleaning of panels to
maintain efficiency, and checks on the inverter and other components. It's advisable

to have a professional maintenance check at least once a year which Huglo Solar
can provide an ongoing service agreement.

How long does it take to install a commercial solar system, and what disruptions can I expect to my business operations?

The installation time can vary widely depending on the size of the system and
specific site conditions, ranging from a few days to several weeks. Professional solar
installers work to minimise disruptions, often scheduling work during off-peak hours.
However, some temporary disruptions can be expected, and it's best to discuss and
plan these with Huglo Solar as part of a business case analysis.
