For a business that is more energy intensive, for example a manufacturing facility or a large office building, a 100kW commercial solar PV system may be suitable.
$130,000 – $200,000
380 – 410
430 – 480 units per day
$30,000 – $40,000 annually
3 to 5 years
Businesses with a high energy usage, who receive annual bills of around $47,000.
A 100kW solar PV system is comprised of quality components made up of solar PV panels and a solar inverter. These costs can be anywhere between $130,000 – $200,000 and will depend on the brands you select for your solar system.
A 100kW solar system has around 380 to 410 PV panels. Each panel measures around 1.6m x 1m, so you’ll need at least 656m2 of roof space. A size comparison of commercial solar systems can be viewed here.
On average, a 100kW commercial solar power system generates 430 to 480 units per day. For a large manufacturing facility like Diab Engineering, this covers 30% of their electricity consumption.
How much money you get back from your solar system will depend on how much electricity you’re able to utilise at your business. Operating at 85% utilisation, Dobbie’s 100Kw solar PV system will save them $37,500 annually.
If you’re able to utilise even more of the solar energy your system generates, this figure could be even higher.
A good quality 100kW solar system will deliver a full return on investment within 3 to 5 years.
Plus, by taking advantage of one of Infinite Energy’s many finance options, like Solar Leasing, you can remain cash flow positive from day one.
This system’s great for large manufacturing facilities and organisations with high energy usage. We’ve installed 100kW systems at Gilmac, a premier exporter of Australian hay and straw located in York; Universal Seafoods, an importer, exporter, distributor and wholesaler of high quality seafood supplies in Canning Vale; and RAC WA in West Perth, to name just a few.
