Commercial & Industrial Solar.

More and more Australian businesses are choosing to generate their own clean energy from renewable sources and reduce their reliance on grid energy.  Whether you want to save on overheads and running costs, move closer to carbon neutral targets, enhance brand image, or gain a level of security against electricity price increases, Ecovantage can provide a custom, financially positive solution for your organisation. Speak with one of our Specialists to get started today. 

LGC accredited provider

Solar Incentives – Energy Certificates.

Solar projects can generate energy certificates representing the megawatts generated through the array. These certificates can be traded to gain a financial benefit, or surrendered to claim the renewable energy benefit. 

Small-medium business solar projects <100kW can create Small Scale Technology Certificates (STCs) which can be traded to reduce the upfront cost of purchase. 

Large commercial and industrial solar systems >100kW can generate Large Scale Generation Certificates (LGCs). These can be traded for financial return, or held to offset energy towards goals of carbon neutrality. Like STCs, LGCs are available nation-wide.

For businesses in Victoria, Victorian Energy Certificates (VEECs) are issued for each tonne of avoided greenhouse gas emissions. VEECs are traded to reduce the capital cost of projects and unlike LGCs allow business to retain ownership of the carbon attributes of their solar system. Combine this with a far higher financial value to the system owner and VEECs are one of the best programs for commercial solar on the market today.

As Australia’s most trusted Authorised Certificate Provider (ACP), Ecovantage handles all certificate management internally, providing direct advice on the best arrangement for your project.

There are many kinds of tradable environmental attributes that represent a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. This short video will explain them.

Finance Options.

Power Purchase Agreement

Ecovantage will build, own and operate solar on the roof of your premises. You buy the electricity generated at a cheaper rate than from the grid. This requires no capital outlay from you, Ecovantage manages all maintenance and insurance, and you see substantial energy savings.

Solar System Buy-Back

If your business has installed a solar system in the last 4 years, you may be eligible to have it purchased back from you in an arrangement to buy the energy produced at a significantly cheaper price than grid energy. This gives an instant cash boost with no maintenance or management hassles.

Smart Ease Finance

Ecovantage recommends Smart Ease for finance. With Smart Ease we can often obtain a 48 hour approval with a full breakdown of the loan and repayments, including a comparison of historical grid-energy bills and forecasted solar bills.

Solar Successes.

Big4 Apollo Bay installed 64kW of solar, generating 78,000 kWh per year.

Roband’s 100kW, 240-panel system will save approx. $30,000 annually.

Key Points to Consider for a Successful Solar Project

Commercial solar installations offer a multitude of benefits for businesses, including cost savings, a reduction in Scope 2 emissions, and improved energy security. However, navigating the process can be complex, and ensuring success requires careful consideration of several key aspects.

Here are the essential elements to look for in a successful commercial solar system project.
