Australian retailers & wholesalers are starting to follow their US counterparts in utilising commercial solar power. Global retail giants like Walmart and Target have implemented solar across their entire portfolios in the US. Energy can often be a significant operating expense due to air-conditioning, refrigeration, lighting and other on-going energy usage in retail outlets. Solar provides retailers and wholesalers with a reliable cost reduction on energy and is a highly-regarded way of differentiating your organisation in a world of environmentally conscious consumers. Todae Solar provides turnkey solutions for retailers & wholesalers, including options that simply provide cheaper electricity rates.

“We recently undertook a major project of converting all of our major branches to solar power, through the initial stages we engaged a couple of suppliers to quote, this process identified Todae Solar to be the most professional, with the ability to carry out the install from a National perspective. The level of professionalism and the time taken through the quoting process, was also reflected through the installation program of a 100kW system at the Sydney office of CJD Equipment Pty Ltd. From my personal involvement and interest with the project; I can certainly attest to how well the staff of Todae Solar conducted themselves on site, along with cleanliness of the work areas. The communication with the site supervisor in keeping us up to date with all that was taking place and when, was second to none, with any disruptions to our operation kept to an absolute minimum. In short; the process was seamless from sign off to handover, as such I would have no hesitation in recommending Todae Solar to any prospective customer.”

“Todae Solar Pty Ltd installed a 28.5kw peak output solar system to our factory at 12 Endeavour Rd Caringbah NSW. The installation was professional and seamless. It is now over one year since the unit became operational. Our average power purchase from the grid is 25% of pre-installation usage.
We have had no need to contact Todae Solar for service at any time since installation. We have no hesitation in recommending Todae Solar for any future installations.”

“I have looked over some figures this morning and am happy to report the following. We have had had the system running now for 12 months – For the months from 1st July to 31st October this year our electricity cost was $8415, for the same period last year when we did not have the solar system the cost was $14127. That’s a saving of $5712 for the 4 month period. This more than covers the loan repayments, so as your people predicted it is cash flow positive. Not bad given we financed over a 3 year period only. Average daily consumption from origin energy is 153.54 kWh for the last 4 months same period last year without solar 210.95kWh. Keep in mind this was essentially last month of winter and then autumn so solar production was not running at its peak. I expect the numbers to look better over the next quarter which will more summer months. Also need to factor in that for this last quarter we paid an average of 25.83 cents per kWh and same period last year we paying 32 cents per kWh. We gained a 15% price reduction from Origin Energy on our rate since installing the solar system. So far system reliability has been 100% Installation was well done by local Wagga installers, we will own it 2 years from now, after that is extra money in our pocket. Cash flow positive, probably more like break even without the 15% discount on the old rates we used to pay. Would certainly recommend this anyone in a similar situation to us running a business who can basically use everything they generate during normal business hours”
