Commercial & Industrial Solar

Autonomous Energy delivers commercial and industrial scale solar power systems across Australia. Since 2003 we have worked with some of Australia’s best-known organisations to facilitate their switch to solar power. Over this period we have developed a wealth of experience and substantial depth of in-house capabilities which are unrivalled in our industry.

As engineers specialised in the field of photovoltaics, we know solar inside out so you can be assured that the information we provide you is the most complete, relevant, objective and accurate that you will find. We are not ‘locked in' to any one supplier or technology, and will present a customised solution based on superior quality, performance and environmental track record. We offer a complete range of solar power system products to meet the requirements of virtually any user. We can design and install the system that is most appropriate for you, at the right price.

Commercial & Industrial Solar


Autonomous Energy is an industry leading provider of commercial and industrial 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 solar team. 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.

Since 2003 we have worked with several multinational industrial clients such as Toyota and ABB to design, supply, install and commission large scale turnkey industrial solar power systems. We manage all aspects of an industrial solar project from system design, feasibility studies, calculating operating / performance parameters, energy and emissions savings, network approval, structural, solar and electrical engineering, procurement, construction, project management, commissioning, ongoing performance monitoring and reporting and preventative maintenance programs.



As the leading solar Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) company in this market, our focus is on delivering turnkey projects to the highest possible levels of safety, quality and performance. We deliver all aspects of your solar project’s value chain.



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.

Our 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 LG and Kyocera, right down to every 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. 

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.
