Commercial Solar Energy Solutions

Micro-Grids

We match your last 12 months of interval data to the actual power generation the same sized system would have produced over the past 12 months, to give the best balance between self-consumption and exporting to the grid, to maximise the return on investment for both you and our investors.

ARE YOU IN THE SWEET SPOT?

If your energy consumption is between 160MW & 250MW there is the potential to significantly change your energy expense by taking you under the 160MW threshold for demand and capacity charges. The benefit of solar is a no brainer, especially when we’re putting our money where our mouth is, it just makes sense. So if you’re in this sweet consumption spot, your savings become exponentially greater. We do this by using a combination of solar, storage, generators and power factor correction.

What Are The

benefits for you?

The benefits of a solar power purchase agreement  depends on a  number of variables, with the  biggest being of ownership  structure of the property. We have  many clients  in multiple  scenarios  so we like  to break then up  into categories.  Please  identify  with one the categories  below  and go to the correlating section section to see what benefits you’d  enjoy  with  Solar PPA’s  from Solar Bay.

– Removal of the burden of ownership of a system.
– Reduced reilance on the grid.
– Immediate savings on electricity cost.
– Electricity remains an operational expense.
– Zero maintenance of the system.
– 24/7 remote monitoring with ongoing power saving recommendations.
– Built in redundancy – you maintain access to mains grid power.


– Potential to easily expand and/or add on new technologies as required.
– Only deploy hard earned capital to core projects
– Become a progressive company and advertise that fact.

This solar thing is a no brainer,

CAPITAL EXPENDITURE OR POWER PURCHASE AGREEMENT?

For Agriculture projects, the most common projects are large scale solar infrastructure with high capital investment, which can inhibit some companies due to the capital expenditure required. That’s why we recommend to our client to let us fund the infrastructure, so you save from day one without any capital expenditure. If at any point throughout our relationship, you decide you want to own the full upside of the system, you’re given a simple ‘buy-back’ schedule so you know exactly what you’ll pay for every 12 month period after our contract is signed.

How commercial solar is benefiting SME’s
and Commercial and Industrial Clients

Commercial solar has become a mainstream topic with the fluctuating price of wholesale electricity. Commercial solar needs to have a grid connection approval before being commissioned and the right installer needs to be a part of the installation as getting export approval is not always guaranteed. There are a number of reasons why large companies should be looking into Commercial Solar.

• Decrease Energy Expense
• Future proof for new technology.
• Hedge against future price increases.
• Corporate Social Responsibility
• Create competitive advantage.

Hybrid Commercial Solar Systems

WHAT ARE HYBRID COMMERCIAL SYSTEMS?
Hybrid Commercial Solar Systems are commercial solar systems behind the meter with a balance between self-consumption and exporting to the grid.

WHERE ARE THEY BEST USED?
High Energy Consumers are a best best for commercial solar systems as they will have the best consumption profile to maximise the cost to install a solar system of that size. If they are operating 5 days a week it means it is in their best interest to maximise exports, because on larger commercial solar systems, this can be a significant amount of exports.

HOW DO I KNOW HOW MUCH SOLAR I NEED?
Solar Bay specialises in investing in large commercial systems so whether or not you want to buy a PV system outright or for Solar Bay to invest in the system, we will run a full analysis on your property to understand the exact consumption profile of your business over the course of the last 12 months. We will then match the exact generation capacity of your area for a range of sizes of commercial solar systems. We will then give you the option of both outright purchase or power purchase agreements so you know the system you are getting is maximised for all parties involved.
