Commercial Case Study



Reducing Daytime Power Consumption by as much as possible with no out of pocket cost.


Considering all factors of feasibility we were able to achieve:

  • 40% reduction from Grid Power by installing a 40kw Solar PV System.
  • $1,900 in savings per month and ultimately saving the business over $22,600 per year.
  • On our Rent to Own option at $1000 per month during the Term = $900 Cash flow Positive

Therefore, the Owners, Hans and Pieter are achieving a..

*Cash Flow Positive Outcome of $900 pm & $10,800 Per Year during the Term already*












  • 40 KW Solar PV System
    – 153 x REC (Peak) 260w Panels
    – 2 x Fronius Inverters (Incl. Monitoring system)
CO2 EQUIVALENT REDUCTION       50,701 kg CO2/ year
ENERGY OUTPUT PER YEAR      73,000 kwh/ units
SOLAR SYSTEM PRODUCTION      * $ 1,900 Per Month / $ 22,600 Per Year *


Cold storage and Refrigeration can be extremely energy hungry, but that doesn’t mean they need to be expensive to operate or bad for the environment. Solar technology has both improved in performance and dropped in price, meaning you can power a modern state-of-the-art facility using solar energy.

Going solar is not only great for the environment, but it’s great for business. It’s a way to not only increase the bottom line by reducing liabilities, but also in the health of the planet.

Why Invest in Solar?

Solar energy is one of the safest investment options on the market today, delivering:

  • 100% guaranteed financial return on investment         
    (You get all of your money back, then an ‘annuity’ for decades in the form of avoided electricity costs)
  • Environmental return on investment                                                  
    (eliminate thousands of pounds of CO2 emissions annually)
  • Lower Operating Cost                                                                                           
    (solar is proven to increase the value of any business by lowering operating cost)
  • Community return on investment                                                               
    (everyone benefits from cleaner air & reduced dependence on fossil energy.

Solar photovoltaic (PV) technology produces electricity for the business. It allows a business to generate clean electricity on its rooftop at a very predictable cost-per-kilowatt-hour – generally less than 9 cents per kilowatt-hour, locked in for the term of the lease then 0 cents per kilowatt-hour for the life of your system (30+ years).

When the sun is out, the panels make power.  When the sun goes down, the business consumes electricity from the grid.  Grid consumption versus production can be reconciled monthly.
