As rates continue to rise, managing energy costs and consumption is becoming increasingly more important to Australian businesses. 

Understanding your energy use and implemementing measures to become more energy efficient can benefit your business in a range of ways.

Beacon Energy Solutions can help you take control of your energy consumption and reduce operating costs.


2. You can lower or stabilise your energy costs

As electricity prices continue to skyrocket, the price of solar power continues to drop. Solar power allows you to generate electricity at a lower cost than purchasing from a utility.

If you are paying more than 20c/kWh for your daytime electricity usage, a system sized to your daytime load will provide a payback time of between 5 and 7 years. After that, the electricity you generate is essentially free.

Today’s rising and volatile energy prices, combined with the many environmental benefits of generating clean energy via the sun, are just a few of the reasons why millions of Australian businesses have decided to go solar.

With solar energy, you have the advantage of knowing exactly how much your energy costs will be year after year. You can plan and budget your operational costs today – and well into the future. As rates continue to rise, your solar system will save you more and more money year after year!

Without solar, your business will be at the mercy of all future rises in energy costs.

3. You can drastically reduce your medium to long-term operational costs

Solar panels have a serviceable life of decades, which translates to a huge reduction in your medium to long-term operational costs.

  • Generate revenue by selling your power to your building’s tenant or to electricity retailers.
  • Increase the value of your building by improving your NABERs/Greenstar rating.
  • Take advantage of Government solar rebates, grants and tax breaks.  

4. You can enhance your brand’s credibility

More and more consumers are turning to companies with ‘green credentials’. You can promote your use of solar power via system visibility, EM launch events and by featuring data-monitoring LCD displays in your building.

5. You can do your bit for the environment

Solar energy is the silent, clean energy alternative that helps reduce your carbon footprint. Your business can generate green energy well beyond the 25-year warranty period of the panels. And you’ll have the benefit of knowing your solar power is not contributing to global warming, acid rain or smog and actively contributes to the decrease of harmful green house gas emissions.

6. You’ll be part of Australia reaching its 20% green energy target by 2020

Solar energy is currently only a small percentage of our total energy use. By switching to solar power in your business, you’ll be helping Australia achieve its 20% green energy target by 2020 and global targets of 20%.
