Benefits of Commercial Solar Energy in Melbourne
Melbourne receives an average of over 4 hours of sunshine per day throughout the year. The actual solar power produced will vary by location, orientation, amplifier, as well as the angle of inclination and components.
Solar power have never been more affordable in Australia, thanks in part to federal government subsidies. Since 2014, Melbourne-based companies have reduced the cost of a fully installed commercial system by as much as 40%.
Solar systems generally have few moving parts and do not require regular maintenance. After installation, the service life of a photovoltaic system is 25 to 30 years. The inverters are typically replaced every 10 to 15 years, while the modules themselves only require electrical inspection every 5 years.
Tax Breaks and Immediate Savings
PV companies get financing packages and flexible repayment options that may be fully tax-deductible. That means loan repayments are less than electricity bill savings. So, almost any solar system installation in Australia can generate positive cash flow from day one.

Modern solar panels last 25 years on average and the manufacturer’s warranty is also for a maximum of 25 years. Solar panel lifespan does increase with quality monitoring/ maintenance services, and an expert installation.
Gross metering measures the total power generated by your solar panels and consumed in your premises. This type of metering is applicable in areas with a gross feed-in tariff, such as the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). With gross metering, you receive the gross feed-in tariff for all the power you generate and pay the usage tariff for all the power you consume.
On the other hand, net metering measures only the difference between your solar power system’s production and your consumption. It calculates the amount of power you import separately from the amount you export and is used in regions with a net feed-in tariff, such as NSW and Victoria. With net metering, you receive the net feed-in tariff for the surplus power you generate, and you pay the usage tariff for any power you import.
The capacity of a solar panel system depends on factors, such as the system’s size, the quantity of sunlight it receives, and the efficiency of the panels. Typically, a 5-kW solar panel system can produce approximately 7,000 kW hours of electricity per year, sufficient to power a standard household. 10-kW systems can generate about 13,000 kW hours of electricity per year, on average.
China is a world leader in solar manufacturing and development and if you look at any top 10 supplier, you’ll find China’s involvement. Bespoke Solar installs solar panels, inverters and batteries from Chinese makers, such as Trina, Jinko, and Goodwe.
Solar power is an investment and the time it takes to profit will depend on the initial investment cost, system size, usage patterns, and the feed-in tariff received from the grid. For businesses that receive a premium feed-in tariff and have minimum usage, the payback period could be below 3 years. For companies with high energy consumption that do not qualify for the premium feed-in tariff, the payback period could extend to nearly 7 years.
The Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES) is the primary financial incentive provided by the Federal Government to community organizations and small businesses for adopting solar power. This scheme enables a solar power system to generate Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs), which can be sold to partially offset the system’s cost. STCs have superseded the earlier Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). Unlike STCs, feed-in tariffs provide ongoing financial incentives instead of a one-time price reduction. These tariffs are typically added to your electricity account by your energy provider for any energy your solar system feeds back into the grid. Tariff rates do vary and are specific to the provider. In addition, some state governments, such as Victoria, offer various Solar for Business Rebate Programs to eligible businesses on the Solar Victoria website.
Besides lowering electricity bills, there are business programs and feed-in tariffs in Australia that help small businesses. There are also government incentives/ rebates and tax breaks from loan repayments. Going solar is a long-term investment for businesses. Other long-term gains include profiting from electricity bills, higher property valuations, improving public image, helping the local community, and building a sustainable business for the future.
