Overcoming Challenges in Implementing Commercial Solar PV: A Roadmap for Australian Businesses

Businesses face several challenges when implementing commercial solar PV systems, including access, structural, and financial issues. Access issues involve considerations like the length of stay at the premise and whether the business owns or leases the premise. Structural challenges involve assessing whether the roof can support solar panels and facilitate easy connection. Financial challenges involve determining how the solar PV system will be paid for. Companies like Energy Action and Beam Solar can assist businesses in overcoming these challenges, offering services like energy procurement and management, site assessment, and guidance on financing options.

Overcoming the Challenges

So, how do you overcome the challenges of implementing a commercial solar PV system? Let's break it down:

  1. Access: Will the business be at the premise long enough to get a payback from the investment? Does the business own or lease the premise where the solar PV could be installed? These are important questions to consider. If you're leasing, you'll need to negotiate with your landlord. If you're planning to move, you'll need to consider the payback period of your investment.
  2. Structural: Can the roof take the weight of solar panels and can they be connected easily? This is where a professional assessment comes in. Companies like Beam Solar can assess the suitability of your site for solar installation.
  3. Finance: How will the solar PV be paid for? There are various financing options available, from outright purchase to power purchase agreements (PPAs) and solar leases. An energy broker like Energy Action can help you navigate these options and find the best solution for your business.
