Founded in 2010, Solar Market is dedicated to educating Australian households and businesses about the important issues associated with installing a solar system.

We believe solar is the best way for business owners and managers to reduce the stress of ever increasing power prices, letting you get back to doing what you do best – running your business.

Electricity prices vs wage growth and inflation

The Cost of Electricity is on the Rise

Continually increasing electricity costs for businesses are unsustainable and could put your business at risk.

Electricity charges continue to increase, with some businesses having their bills more than doubled in the past 1-2 years, and economy inflation is not being able to cover these costs.

“The average household and small-business energy bill is more than 80% higher than a decade ago. Gas prices have increased threefold in five years.”

Solar Is The Solution To Cutting Business Energy Costs

Now that energy costs are on the rise and installing commercial size solar systems prices are on the decrease, many businesses are making the smart choice of switching to solar to reduce electricity bills for up to 20 years! Generous Government rebates are also helping businesses with the installation of new solar systems, with rebates saving businesses up to $83,344 dependent on the size of the system.

Under the Government’s STC incentive program, businesses are eligible to receive up to 40% off the total cost of solar installations.

System Size Incentive
10kW system (Small-sized business) $6,086
30kW (Medium-sized business) $18,292
100kW (Large-scale eg. Supermarket) $61,064

And that’s not all! Reduced electricity bills are only one of the many benefits of switching to solar:

  • Reducing cost

    Immediate reduction in operating costs

  • High ROI

    High investment returns and fast payback periods

  • Protect aginst price hikes

    Hedge against future electricity price increases

  • reduce carbon footprint

    Reduce your carbon footprint & emissions

  • Systems last decades

    Systems are low maintenance and last for decades

  • Enhance your brand

    Improve your environmental credentials

Payment plans are also available for businesses wanting to pay for the installed system gradually.

  1. Cash / CapExThe most cost effective away to finance your system and will lead to the fastest payback time and the highest ROI
  2. Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)A PPA is a form of lease whereby a third party owns and maintains the system for a set period and you buy the power at a rate lower than you pay from the grid. After around 20 years, you’ll own the system.
  3. LoanA business loan or Green loan is a great way to finance a system and, in most cases the repayments will be less than the savings in electricity so it should be a no-brainer.
