The future is Solar

Reduce your cost of energy with a commercial solar system. Discover two ways to benefit below:

Solar as a Service is when Solar Bay funds, installs, monitors and maintains a solar system on your property. We then sell you the electricity at a rate that’s significantly lower than your current grid power prices. This provides you all the benefits of solar without the hassle or expsense of owning the system yourself.

When purchase a solar system want to know it’s of high quality as it needs to last 25+ years. The systems we sell are identical to the ones we’re happy to own under our Solar as a Service model so you know they’re good. Additionally, we monitor all systems we sell outright to ensure they’re performing as expected, and that way we can let you know when new technology such as batteries can be incorporated into your system.

Please leave your details below and we’ll email you through an information pack.
