Our solar power systems have a track record of outperforming industry benchmarks and we deliver on time, on budget, to specification as evidenced by our happy customers.
In 2014, we installed more capacity in the 10-100kW range than any other installer in the nation.
Our commercial solar division covers solar panel based photovoltaic (PV) power systems installed on the rooftops of businesses, schools and community organisations across Australia. Our capabilities span from 20 kilowatt arrays to multi-megawatt projects.
Anyone with a large roof space could reap the rewards of installing a commercial scale solar power system. You only need a minimum 200m2 of free roof space in good condition, unimpeded and unshaded; with preferably a northerly aspect.
Zero capital outlay arrangements are also available under our leasing and Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) programs. Contact us on 133 SUN, email our team via firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the form below for further details .

Why go solar?
There are many good reasons to install a commercial scale solar energy system. Here’s just a few.
The price of solar power has dropped dramatically over recent years, while electricity prices have skyrocketed – and the price hikes may continue.
Generate electricity at a lower cost than purchasing from a utility by harvesting the power of the sun!
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 which time, the electricity you generate is essentially free.
In addition to outright purchase, we also offer other options – solar leasing and Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs). Your organisation can benefit from solar with zero capital outlay. These arrangements are also backed by a solid performance guarantee.
With solar panels having a serviceable life of decades, going solar translates to a huge reduction in your medium to long term operational costs.
- Generate revenue by selling your plant’s power to your building’s tenant or to electricity retailers.
- Increase the value of your building by improving your NABERs/Greenstar rating.
- Government solar rebates, grants and tax breaks are available

Enhance your brand’s credibility via system visibility, EM launch events, data monitoring LCD displays somewhere prominent in your building. Produce peak power – Australia is heading towards a chronic shortage.
Generate clean, green energy for decades – well beyond the 25 year warranty period on the panels. Solar panels used by Energy Matters such as REC Solar modules have low embodied energy of less than 12 months, meaning that the life-cycle environmental impact is minimal.
