Summary

One of the obvious benefits of commercial solar power is reducing the environmental impact of a business – and the fact that solar energy can make a considerable impact on electricity bills in a large building such as 41 Colin Street. These factors, and the chance to lower the energy costs for their commercial tenants, helped the owners of 41 Colin St make the decision to invest in solar. They believe this investment in solar could become a selling point for potential tenants in the future.

With a number of commercial tenants in the building, it was vital that the introduction of solar did not have any negative impacts on the businesses inside.
Our Synergy SolarReturn team installed a 25.65kW system, with 95 QCELLS solar panels and a Fronius inverter.

In the original proposal from our SolarReturn team, it was estimated that the building’s owners could save a potential $10,642 per year on their electricity bills.# These savings are based on the system size and performance, and the unique energy profile and use at the building.

#Estimated potential savings only based on system size, expected output and calculated against historic electricity supply costs based on current tariffs.

Project Challenges

Fitting solar to a multi-storey building can come with added risks, so the Synergy SolarReturn team planned the design and installation of the system carefully in line with industry safety standards.

 

Testimonial

“We are very happy with how the systems performing, we were a little paranoid about holes being drilled in to the roof when we went out and got quotes but the guys were great and the systems really lowered our bills. We installed solar to provide a benefit to our tenants, and as a bit of a selling point to help rent out the building in the future. A majority of the energy produced is consumed by the building, with export occurring on the weekends.”
- Eileen Newby, Accountant.

 

*Estimated annual bill offset and approximate payback period are indicative only based on system size, the price paid, historic consumption and electricity supply costs for the premises and current electricity tariffs.  If the consumption habits at this premise significantly change, the estimated annual bill offset and payback period will also change.
