Making Large-Scale Solutions Simple
The world is changing; customers not only expect businesses to deliver: excellent quality, service and price, but they also expect companies to care – about energy use, packaging, emissions, waste and, most importantly, people and the planet. This is where commercial solar power systems become a go-to solution.
Not only can going solar can reduce your energy bills for the next 20+ years, but it is also a visible billboard to your staff and customers that you are one of the good guys seeking to make positive, sustainable change in the world.
AA Solar is a full-service company that will help you make the right solar solution for your business.
Benefits of Commercial Solar
Surety of Supply: Solar and batteries can keep your business running even when the Grid goes down. For many, this surety of supply can pay for the entire solar installation with one power outage! How much of your business is energy dependent? AA Solar can design a system that when the Grid goes down, your business does not go down with it. Whether its:
- Eftpos machines, internet router, computer system
- Perishable foods or medicines
- Time-sensitive processing: bakers, chemical reactions, milking
- Health and safety risks – medical devices, security systems, lights
Savings in Operating Costs: With solar systems producing energy for 20-30 years, you can save on power bills, from year one to the next 20+ years. These cost savings can increase even further if you size your system to power your car fleet.
IRR: We are confident that the solar system we install will deliver a highly competitive Internal Rate of Return that will make your initial investment a no-brainer. We will sit with you to develop a comprehensive financial model before committing.
Carbon Footprint: If you are a North Island company, do not forget that we still burn coal at Huntly to support the grid during peak demand and use natural gas extensively. Both of which have a negative impact on the countries and your carbon footprint. But by going solar and switching to electric or hybrid vehicles for your fleet, you can quickly and sustainably reduce your carbon footprint.
Play to your strengths: Many businesses have large, under-utilised roofs and use electricity daily. Why would you not get your roof working to support your daytime power needs?
Brand Enhancement: Whether your focus is: Business-to-Business or Business-to-Consumer, all customers care about your green credentials. Going solar is a clear, visible commitment that can be promoted online in proposals, brochures, and packaging.
Staff Retention: Staff today are seeking to work for a company they can feel proud of. Working for a company seeking to reduce their Carbon Footprint strongly indicates a company’s ethics. If the company looks after the planet, they are likely to look after me too”.
Customer Engagement: Customers spend more and stay longer with companies whose values are aligned with their own. Showing a clear commitment to managing your costs and protecting the environment, you will win many’s hearts and minds.
The breadth of Service Offering: AA solar offers grid-tied, hybrid (battery storage), and off-grid solutions to suit your business requirements. Grid-tied systems are the most cost effective to install and export excess power to the grid. Hybrid systems store excess power in batteries for use when the sun is not shining and offer emergency power backup during a power cut. Off-Grid eradicates your power bill, but there is a significant up-front cost, and it is best suited for farms and businesses in areas without access to a grid power supply.
Technical Expertise: We have an exceptionally strong, large in-house team of Engineers, Electricians and Installation Technicians. We bring a wealth of solar experience gathered here and overseas and the best-of-breed PV modelling software to aid our engineers in designing the optimal system that meets your business goals.
Financial Acumen: Coen van Breda, the owner and CEO of the business, will work with you directly to help develop a detailed financial evaluation. He has 30+ years of experience in national and international business at the board and Chief Executive Officer level and is well-placed to assist you and your board make an informed decision that meets your objectives.
Experience: Over 30 years, we have specified and installed hundreds of commercial installations here and overseas. We develop custom solutions from needs assessment to specification, product sourcing, installing, warranting, and after-install support. We take care of the complexity, so going solar is an easy and enjoyable experience for you and your team.
