Large-scale consumers of electricity like Retail, Large Manufacturers, Food & Beverage and Healthcare may be suitable for a 500kW Solar System. Large-scale systems like 500kW and above require significant experience and expertise to deliver. Todae Solar has worked with numerous organisations to assess the viability of large-scale solar. These systems often feature more than 1800 solar panels and require a sophisticated EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) Contractor. With our experience as Australia’s #1 commercial solar installer, we can provide your organisation with a sophisticated business case and feasibility study on large-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.
Organisations that spend more than $30,000 per month on electricity can receive significant energy savings by implementing a 500kW solar system. To understand the potential benefits, a Todae Solar consultant will analyse your electricity usage and provide a sophisticated business case to provide insight into the viability of solar.

Large-scale energy consumers 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. A 500kW solar system can generate over 800,000kWh per year and provide potential annual savings of over $150,000. 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.
Commercial solar installations above 100kW 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 over $600,000 of additional revenue for the duration of the scheme.
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. Large-scale solar systems like a 500kW installation, can be used as an initiative to provide greater certainty, control and accountability over energy costs.
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.
