A 40kW commercial solar PV system is one of our most popular sized systems. Many of our customers decide to increase the panel capacity to 40kW, whilst keeping the inverter capacity at 30kW, in order to increase their system’s efficiency. In WA, keeping the inverter capacity at (or below) 30kW has the advantage of a simpler, cheaper network connection process.

Businesses with a medium energy usage, who receive annual bills of around $20,000.
A 40kW solar PV system comprised of quality components costs anywhere between $42,000 – $71,000. The cost will depend on the brands you select for your solar system.
A 10kW solar system has around 150 to 160 panels. Each panel measures around 1.6m x 1m, so you’ll need at least 256m2 of roof space.
On average, a 40kW solar system generates 170 to 190 units per day. For a medium sized manufacturing facility like Australian Safety Engineers, this covers over 40% 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 73% utilisation, Joseph Banks Aged Care’s 40kW solar PV system will them $16,200 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 40kW system will deliver a full return on investment within just 2 to 5 years.
Plus, by taking advantage of one of Infinite Energy’s many finance options, like SaaS, you can remain cash flow positive from day one.
This system’s great for medium sized businesses and manufacturers. We’ve installed 40kW systems at Transmin, a leading engineering solutions provider in Malaga; Specialty Feeds, a feed farm supplier in Glen Forrest; Armadale, the Riverton Leisureplex in the City of Canning, and many more.
