Our ‘Six Steps to Solar Success’

Step 1: Contact us now to make an appointment for a free consultation
One of our specialist commercial solar consultants will book a time convenient to you to visit your premises and provide a check list of all the information you need to provide at your appointment. This may include:
  • Your electricity bills
  • Your hours and days of operations
  • Any planned increase to your operating hours in the future
  • Your lease terms if you don’t own your building
Step 2: Your consultation
At your appointment we will discuss and calculate the following:
  • Your current electricity consumption patterns
  • Current and future electricity tariffs
  • Available roof space (including pitch and orientation)
Step 3: Your proposal & business case for commercial solar 
We will provide you with a detailed proposal which will include the following:
  • Capital cost of installing your commercial solar system including all recommended equipment using only tier 1 products
  • Expected yields
  • Investment returns
  • Payback period
  • Net Present Value (NPV) of the investment
  • Purchasing options (outright purchase, leasing, bank financing)
We will also answer any question you have.

Step 4: Approvals
When you are happy with your proposal, then we can proceed towards preparing the required paperwork and seeking the necessary approvals. We can manage all of this on your behalf, including:   
  • STC rebates
  • Electricity retailer approval
  • Western Power application
  • Building approvals
  • Structural engineering certificates
Step 5: Commercial Solar System installation
Your commercial solar panel installation will take place at a suitable time and typically takes around one week or less for a 30kW system and three to four weeks for a 100kW install. All installations are performed by our team of fully licensed installers and are backed by our industry-leading 20-year workmanship guarantee.  We will ensure your system is fully tested and working before we leave.

Step 6: Pocket the profit!
Your business is now ready to enjoy the benefits of harvesting the power of the sun! It is important, however, to ensure your commercial solar system continues to perform at peak levels. We recommend regular performance monitoring to test this. Our solar technicians can visit your property and test your system’s efficiency to ensure that it performs within 10% of the estimated output calculated in installation. We will also identify any faults or areas that require attention.

Commercial Solar FAQs

What limitations do I have in terms of size for my commercial solar system?

There are a couple of different restrictions for commercial solar panel units in Perth, Western Australia. When you go over 30kW of inverter capacity, Western Power require you to do special engineering and put in extra surge and grid protection. This pushes back the approval process and increases the cost quite substantially, which is why most solar systems jump from 30kw up to 100kw, as this is when it starts to become most viable for your return on investment. Once you go over 100kW systems, you also get a credit called LGCs, which operates differently to STCs.

Do I need council approval for my commercial solar system?

This changes from council to council across Australia. Here at MLEC, we will contact your council and then complete any council approval documents that we need prior to installation of your commercial solar panels & inverter.
