The case for solar was won long ago. Yet there’s a lot of Northern Territory business that is yet to get on board.
There’s nothing new about solar power in Australia. We’ve been putting solar hot water systems on our roofs since the 1980s. And it’s common sight to see panels being installed on Aussie homes every day. but business has been slow to adopt solar power. Yet the commercial sector is perhaps the one that can best take advantage of the benefits of solar power. And here’s why.
Dramatic power cost reduction
With the NT continually producing some of the highest power costs in the nation – in the country where power costs more than any other nation – it’s obvious that anything that would reduce power costs would be a good thing.
Your power bills immediately reduce the moment the system is switched on, but it’s the ongoing savings that really add up. With government incentives to help pay off your system quickly, and the long-lasting nature of today’s panels, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t at least explore the option of solar for your commercial premises.
GOING GREEN IS GREAT FOR PUBLIC RELATIONS
Today’s consumer is more ecologically savvy than ever. So when you’re installing solar on your premises, you’re making a statement that says “I care about the future.”
Reducing your carbon footprint is actively showing the market that you have a point of difference and you’re proud of being green and aware.
Some studies in Australia have shown that a growing number of consumers make purchasing decisions based on ethical and ecological grounds. Going solar could be your greatest marketing edge.
SOLAR CAN INCREASE YOUR COMMERCIAL PROPERTY VALUE
In a property market that has seen some huge peaks and troughs over the last 30 years, commercial property owners are looking for every advantage they can. Solar is one very big advantage to consider.
Because of the dramatic power cost savings and public relations value of solar on a commercial premises, solar-installed properties are positioned to far outperform non-solar activated properties in coming years.
Savvy building owners, strata managers and bodies corporate are fast moving to commercial solar to give their property a market edge.
