Commercial solar power is one of the most effective ways your organisation can take control over your electricity costs. There are many finance options available to businesses and one of the most popular is a cash purchase (capex) arrangement. A cash purchase allows your organisation to achieve the highest returns from installing a commercial solar power system; however it requires an initial upfront investment in the system.

Payback periods range between 2.5 – 6 years depending on your location, energy usage and electricity tariffs. Todae Solar is able to provide a business case which will enable your business to understand the viability of solar.

A cash purchase generates the cheapest LCOE (Levelised Cost of Electricity) over the life of the system, this can range from 3-8c/kWh over a 20 year period.

Solar Purchase Highlights:

  • Upfront Cost

    Yes – System is paid for upfront.
  • Ownership

  • Tax Benefits

    Customer can claim depreciation over 20 year period.
  • Operations & Maintenance

    Todae Solar can provide an Operations & Maintenance plan.
  • Term

  • Ongoing Costs

  • Eligible for Rebates

  • Insurance

    The customer is responsible for insurance of the system.

How Does A Cash Purchase Work?

  • With an outright purchase, your organisation receives the maximum financial benefit from solar power.
  • We will assist you to ensure that you receive any available government rebates and incentives to reduce your capital investment.
  • A cash purchase means that your organisation will own the system outright from day one and can achieve significant cost reductions.

Key Benefits of a Cash Purchase

Greater Financial Savings from Day One

A cash purchase enables your organisation to directly receive the cost savings from the solar energy created – effectively giving your business free electricity for 20 years plus. As there are no ongoing costs or repayments this provides the greatest overall savings from solar.

Hedge Against Rising Energy Prices

Electricity prices have risen significantly and are expected to continue to rise over the next decade. A commercial solar system will cover a portion of your electricity usage (up to 60%) and any price increases will not affect the energy generated from your solar system. Any increases in electricity costs will likely mean that your organisation receives more savings for the electricity your system generates.

The Lowest LCOE

A capex arrangement provides the lowest Levelised Cost of Electricity. This can be between 2-8c/kWh over the 20 year lifespan of the system. As there are minimal or even no on-going costs, this arrangement delivers the lowest cost of power over the long term.

Tax Benefits

A commercial solar system is effectively an asset on your building/premises. This will add value to your property and provide a depreciation benefit over the 20 year lifespan.
