How do I save money?

With electricity prices always on this rise, saving money is on everyone’s mind.

Zero Cost Solar saves you money in four ways:

  1. You don’t spend any of your hard earned money on the solar system or metering connection.
  2. You purchase electricity at the same or below current energy prices. To maximise this saving over time, we lock in this low price until system handover.
  3. We gift the solar system to you once a set amount of electricity has been purchased. Your electricity expenditure remains the same while earning for a high capacity solar system.
  4. We always recommend installing the largest solar system possible on your property. A larger system ensures that you will cover your consumption even on rainy or cloudy days. As you aren’t paying for it, why not go big.

How much will I save?

Calculating your particular energy savings depends on many factors including the direction and tilt of the solar array, your electricity consumption patterns and obviously the amount of sunshine.  Data taken from AEMO (Australian Energy Market Operator) on NSW SME business energy consumption shows average projected savings to be around $22,000 annually once ownership has been transferred. The figure doesn’t take the newly acquired asset value into account and is purely on energy savings.

These savings will increase if your business consumes more electricity during the daytime.  These figures assume that electricity prices will not increase. Should they increase as they have over the past 10 years, your savings will be much larger.
