Put solar to work for your business

You could make tangible savings on your business' daily energy usage charges, by getting a Synergy SolarReturn system to work hard for you. We can even put you in touch with Macquarie Leasing (Macquarie) to see if you’re eligible for commercial solar finance#.

Explore your Commercial Solar Finance options with Macquarie and you can also consider whether there are potential benefits to your business such as:

  • Protecting and improving your cash flow
  • Cash-flow positive
  • Potential tax deductions and depreciation write downs^

Synergy business customers have the following options available through Macquarie if they seek finance:

 

Chattel Mortgage (finance to own) Rental

How much could you save with solar finance*?

While every business is different, we’ll work hard to find an efficient and cost-saving result for you. For example, a cold refrigeration business recently explored the cash flow impact of financing their 40kw Solar System (~$40k ex GST). Based on a 7-year fully-amortising loan, this business customer could potentially be as much as $408 better off per month [than if they had paid for the system upfront]. This is a great outcome for the business, as it allows the owners to have access to a Synergy solar system without a large upfront capital outlay.
