Solar

Harness the power of the sun and save money on your electricity supply with sustainable, reliable, and cost-effective energy for your business.

Energy costs directly impact your bottom line

Total world energy consumption is expected to rise 28% by 2040, according to the United States Energy Information Administration (EIA). Add in rising fuel costs, and the future of traditional energy supply looks very expensive.

Additionally, prices for grid electricity are unpredictable and can vary widely from month to month—making forecasting operating expenses difficult. By installing a Solar solution, you can generate electricity at a price substantially lower than from your local energy provider.

Solar is a truly sustainable energy solution

Every day, you could be drawing on a natural and sustainable resource to power your business and reduce reliance on the grid. Solar power enables energy generation onsite by converting the power of the sun into 100% renewable electricity, helping you meet your corporate sustainability goals. As Solar power does not have any pollutants or carbon emissions, you will significantly reduce your impact on the environment.

Solar power unlocks value from your roof or empty land

Solar is designed to generate power using energy from the sun, reducing your operating expenses and carbon footprint. Solar can even unlock value from unused assets like your roof or empty space of land to create an additional revenue stream.

50% offset
Our customised Solar solutions have the potential to offset as much as 50% of your energy—sometimes more, depending on your system size and energy usage.

What is Solar?

Solar power is a renewable source of electricity generation that works by absorbing sunlight and converting it into electricity. Solar panels are mounted on the roof of a building or on the ground (such as in a field).

The power generated can be used directly onsite, with an option to store for later use by adding Storage capability to lower energy costs during peak times or, in some cases, fed back into the grid to create an additional revenue stream. It is 100% sustainable, reliable, and cost-effective—ideal for businesses that want to reduce both energy costs and carbon emissions.
