Commercial Solar Power Systems

Turnkey Commercial Solar Power Systems

Autonomous Energy is an industry leading provider of commercial scale turnkey solar power systems. We have our own in house team of solar engineers, accredited solar designers, accredited solar installers, licensed electricians and project managers so all work is conducted by our experienced and qualified in-house solar engineering and in-house solar installation teams. This ensures stringent and effective quality control over every step of the commercial solar process from system design, installation, commissioning through to ongoing performance monitoring and reporting.

Electricity Cost Savings with Solar Power

While most of the solar industry focuses on simple small scale residential systems, the economics of solar power are perhaps even more favourable for commercial solar. Commercial sites tend to use more energy during the day when electricity rates are high. This coincides with the output of solar power systems which can generate a significant portion of a site’s daytime load and also reduce peak demand charges considerably.

Typical payback periods are under 5 years. The payback period can in fact be much lower than this for manufacturing sites which are eligible for the Clean Technology Investment Program.

Autonomous Energy can model the output of any proposed solar power system to determine the effect that it will have on your electricity bill accounting for all charges and time of use tariffs based on real world data and site electricity data. We can provide a feasibility report which contains a range of financial analysis to allow an investment decision to be made based on all the facts, rather than using rule of thumb figures like our competitors.

Track Record

Autonomous Energy has a strong track record as one of the industry leaders in commercial solar in Australia. Commercial solar is much more challenging than small scale residential systems and it is our strength in solar engineering, our real world technical experience, our in-house engineering and installation teams and our commitment to quality which allow us to achieve the best result for our clients.

Premium Quality is in our DNA

Many companies in the solar industry claim to be ‘high quality’ or ‘Tier 1’ and while this may be effective marketing, often these claims are not based on reality.

At Autonomous Energy quality is truly in our DNA. Every member of our highly qualified team is focussed on providing industry leading services, using only carefully selected, premium quality components and materials which are customised to be appropriate for each individual application. This extends from premium solar panels from the world’s best solar manufacturers such as Kyocera and LG, right down to each nut, bolt, connector, cable and isolator and through all of our installation practices, staff training and certified management systems.

Autonomous Energy’s management systems are certified to ISO9001: Quality Management, an endorsement of our comprehensive approach to quality. We are also certified to ISO14001: Environmental Management and AS4801: Occupational Health and Safety. To read more about our certified management systems please click here.

Finance Options and Cash Flow Positive Solar

Autonomous Energy, in association with a major bank, can offer a range of zero CAPEX solutions which in many cases can deliver a cash flow positive result for commercial solar projects. While these finance options can be structured in a number of ways, the aim is to use your site’s existing OPEX budget for electricity rather than CAPEX. The savings from the system (reduced electricity costs) in many cases outweigh the payments for the system, resulting in improved cash flow and energy cost savings from the time of installation. Performance can be guaranteed or payments linked to electricity generated for perfect security.
