If your business is like most, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic was completely unexpected and is having ongoing implications as world events unfold. Before 2020, it’s not likely that many business decision-makers had even considered the impact of a pandemic in their forward planning. Now, it’s more important than ever to plan ahead and prioritise what’s most important in your operations.

One of the easiest ways you can take control of your energy management now and into the future is with commercial solar. Here are three reasons why your business might be ready for solar.


Reason #1 - Potential tax benefits

The instant asset write off arrangements mean you might be able to claim the cost, or part of the cost, of your commercial solar system as a tax write-off. For more information visit the Australian Tax Office website and seek professional advice. 

Whether you could claim the cost, or part of the cost, of your commercial solar system as a tax write-off, will depend on a number of factors. You can talk to us about solar solutions – and we recommend you speak with your registered tax agent to find out if you could claim an asset write-off in respect of a commercial solar solution. 


Reason #2 - More control of your energy management

By producing some of your energy requirements on-site, you could take more control over the costs of powering your business. 

Solar production peaks during the hours which receive the most sunshine, which is typically 10am to 2pm here in WA. If your business uses most of its power during daylight hours, you could enjoy the benefits of commercial solar.  You could also consider installing a battery to store any excess solar energy to use when the sun goes down.


Reason #3 - The world is changing – and so is WA business

Whether you’re exploring ways to invest in renewable energy or taking action to reduce your environmental impact, now could be the perfect time for your business to embrace WA’s intelligent energy future. 

Your business could take advantage of solar technology to help reduce your commercial carbon footprint, support the solar industry and even share your solar journey with your customers to show how your business is genuinely working to make a difference.
