Substantial Savings on your Energy Bill
If you are fortunate to own commercial property you will find major energy savings on your current energy bill. Often residential occupants are working throughout the day, which means they are not utilising the solar energy generated.
In the case where there is no battery bank, the solar energy must therefore be sold back to the grid, and these prices have reduced over the years.
Commercial solar is particularly beneficial, because, unlike residential property, you are using energy throughout the day when the solar panels are generating the energy. This means larger savings for you.
Auswide Solar have modelled the cost savings, and with our expertise, we often save our commercial customers up to 75% on their current energy bill using the power from the grid.
