Todae Solar

We have extensive experience in delivering large-scale solar installations and multi-site rollouts nationally. MW (Megawatt) scale solar installations can be deployed for large-scale Tier 1 electricity users like Large Manufacturer’s, Big Box Retail, Healthcare and Agriculture (including Ground Mount Systems). We have worked with numerous organisations from concept and feasibility to installation for MW scale projects. MW+ systems require more than 4000 solar panels and require a sophisticated EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) Contractor to complete. With our experience as Australia’s #1 commercial solar installer, we can provide your organisation with a sophisticated business case and feasibility study on MW scale solar installations.* We provide a full service EPC approach and have a track record of delivering high quality installations for a range of Tier 1 clients.

    A MW Solar System Utilizes: More than 4000 solar panels and 30+ Commercial grade inverters
  • Roof Area Needed

    A 1MW Solar System will require around 6100m2 of roof space for installation.
  • MW Solar Rebate

    A MW system is eligible to receive Largescale Generation Certificates (LGC’s). This is part of the Federal Renewable Energy Target (RET) and can provide over $1,000,000 of additional revenue for the duration of the scheme.
  • Electricity Generated By The System

    Depending on where your business is located a 1MW system can generate between 1,300,000 -1,600,000kWh per annum. This equates to around 3,500-4300kWh/day on average.
  • Potential Annual Savings

    Depending on a few variables a MW systems may save your business conservatively more than $300,000 per annum.

    This system will help your business to reduce your carbon emissions by around 7500-8000 tonnes (over 20 years).
  • Levelised Cost of Electricity

    With long term warranties, a MW+ system can deliver a Levelised Cost of Electricity (LCOE) between 3 - 7 c/kWh (over 20 years).

Cost Reductions

Large-scale energy consumers like Tier 1 manufacturers, retailers and agricultural organisations spend significant money on energy per annum. While these organisations often receive competitive electricity tariffs, these costs can still be one of the largest operational line-items. MW+ installations can generate over 1.6 Million kWh and potential savings of over $400,000 per year. These cost reductions can allow your business to improve operational profitability and reinvest these savings in other strategic projects. With finance solutions that do not require upfront capital your organisation could receive these benefits without affecting capital budgets.

Ongoing LGC Revenue

MW+ scale installations are eligible to receive Largescale Generation Certificates (LGC’s) for the energy that they generate. This is part of the Federal Renewable Energy Target (RET) and provides one certificate for one Megawatt hour of electricity generation. With the scheme running up until 2030, this can provide more than over $1,000,000 of additional revenue for the duration of the scheme.

Risk Mitigation

Whilst large-scale energy consumers often have 2-3 year electricity contracts, energy prices have increased significantly in the last 12 months and are continuing to follow an upward trajectory. Even a 5% increase in these costs can have a dramatic impact to profitability. This lack of control over electricity costs can pose a large risk to your organisation. MW+ scale installations, can be used as an initiative to provide greater certainty, control and accountability over energy costs.

Marketing Benefits

Organisations that are suited to large-scale solar often have sustainability targets or initiatives in place. Globally solar is one of the most common initiatives to promote Corporate Social Responsibility with organisations such as Apple and Google investing heavily in solar under their sustainability targets. Locally, numerous organisations benefit for solar, one of Todae Solar’s customers, Stockland, received a Green Globe award for their 1.22MW installation.
