Choosing a commercial solar system that meets your business needs

Before we talk about system components, let’s talk about the most important ingredient of all: your peace of mind. With NRG Solar you get a high-quality, turnkey solution designed and delivered by your trusted solar expert.

We deliver uncompromised quality with every single project. Why? Because we’re passionate about three things: renewable energy, providing trusted solar expertise to Australian homes and businesses, and being the best at what we do!

We’re not just installing solar. We’re on a mission to reimagine the way energy is produced, stored and consumed in Australia. 

An NRG commercial solar system

Three main components make up our solar systems:
Solar panels
Panel mounting system
Solar inverter

In recent times with the price of solar batteries getting cheaper and the cost of electricity rising, battery storage solutions for commercial solar have become increasingly common.

We have installed many battery storage systems into commercial properties to deliver solutions to meet customers’ needs, including lower power bills, reduced peak demand and energy security (blackout protection).

We’re proud to say that we only recommend solar panels, inverters and battery storage solutions that come with industry-leading reliability, performance and warranties. We would be happy to assist you in designing and understanding your potential return on solar storage investment. Contact us to request an on-site consultation to get started.

The smallest details make a big difference

When it comes to solar, a lot of time is spent focusing on panels, inverters and batteries - and rightly so. But what about the unspoken components of your system?

Believe it or not, sub-components can have a massive effect on system performance and longevity. In fact, solar panels rarely break on their own. Issues with cabling and poor racking are far more common. As your local solar repair specialist, we see these problems every day.

That’s why with NRG Solar, you also get top-quality cabling, isolators, AC and DC breakers, cable tray and covers, and built-to-last Clenergy racking.

Determining the right size for your commercial solar system

The size of your commercial solar system will come down to a variety of factors. Some clients want to eliminate their power bills altogether, while others seek to reduce peak demand or simply see their bills go down. An increasing number of clients want to protect their businesses from blackouts.

Taking all of these factors into account, as well as solar rebates and incentives, we will work with you to analyse your energy use and recommend a tailored system size to perfectly suit your business.

The efficiency of commercial solar panels

A determining factor in the efficiency of your solar system is the solar panels. Modern commercial solar panels show an impressive 17-19% efficiency, and while efficiency matters, quality components do too. At NRG, we understand that quality components are equally important to ensure longterm reliability and optimal performance. We consider both the efficiency and quality of the solar panels for your system to ensure you’re getting a great ROI for decades to come. 

Top solar panels and inverters for commercial solar systems

For commercial solar projects, we proudly recommend and install Fronius, Sungrow and Enphase commercial-grade inverters. 

Your NRG Commercial Solar consultant will explain the pros and cons of different inverter options, including their applications, performance and warranties. 

You also benefit from NRG’s history as a solar repair specialist. From our experience repairing other companies’ work, we only supply and recommend inverters that we trust to meet the demands of South Australia’s challenging climatic conditions.

Our recommended inverters are paired with industry-leading SunPower, Winaico or Jinko panels, and fixed with quality Clenergy racking.

Unlock valuable savings with commercial solar rebates and Government incentives

As a business, you can access a range of Government grants and rebates for solar and energy efficiency installations. Our commercial solar specialists will ensure you get the best return for your solar investment with the appropriate Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs), Large-scale Technology Certificates (LGCs) and Feed-in Tariff options for your system. Incentives vary from state to state, but our team of experts will work with you to install the quality system you need with the best ROI.

Commercial solar costs

When it comes to solar, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. The cost of your system will depend on your needs and objectives. A more useful approach is to focus on how much the system will save you and how quickly it will pay for itself. 

For example: An NRG Solar commercial system that costs $50,000 and results in power bill savings of $25,000 per annum will pay for itself in just two years. And it will continue generating annual savings of around $25,000 (or more if power prices continue to rise) for up to 25+ years. That’s a projected saving of around $750,000 on an original investment of just $50,000.

When we do our analysis, we provide you with a detailed projection of your savings and payback period. We also compare cash and finance payment methods, showing what you will save over the lifetime of the system for each option. Many businesses find that the cost of finance is easily offset by their power bill savings.

To find out how much you could save, contact NRG Solar to request a free consultation with a commercial solar expert.
