- Reduce operating costs: Significant savings and credits (feed-in tariffs) on your energy bills.

Installing clean, green energy at your business is positive for your brand and business profile – and a great reason for eco-conscious businesses and individuals to support your business. Align with your sustainability goals and KPIs while reducing your business’s footprint for the environment.
Maximising ROI with commercial solar installation
Commercial solar installation is a great way for small businesses and industrial operators to reduce running costs and there are many ways to maximise your overall return on investment. Investing in the right system, specifically designed for your commercial premises and the power needs of your business (and having it installed by licensed, accredited solar experts) is key from the start for a quality system that performs best for you. Further, here are some tips to best utilise the ‘free power’ available to your business:
- Consume your free solar power when it’s most available (time usage to daytime where possible)
- Incorporate a solar battery (great for businesses who operate at night)
- Alternate between solar and grid-generated power during on/off-peak times so your business uses grid-power when it’s cheapest
- Take advantage of feed-in tariffs (electricity bill credits) by using stored solar at peak times when tariffs are highest
- Choose a system with online monitoring to further fine-tune your consumption
Watch the power-generation of your solar panels and your power consumption live throughout the day with detailed, in-app online monitoring. See when your solar is most available (generating the most power) and your highest and lowest usage times so you can adjust operations and modify usage patterns where possible. Online monitoring may also assist to identify equipment or appliances that use a significant amount of power, which can be considered for upgrades down the track.
*Note, the availability of online monitoring is system setup and model dependent.
Cost and financial incentives: commercial solar installation rebates
The initial outlay for the commercial solar system itself and installation will depend on the type, size and design of the system to be installed. It also depends on the physical and environmental characteristics of the commercial premises and location and the degree of associated electrical work which may be required.
Information on available government financial incentives for commercial solar installation can be found at the Clean Energy Council website.

Grid-connected and hybrid solar systems
So, what do these terms mean? ‘Grid-connected’ solar systems provide access to solar power and grid-generated power, allowing your business to run on free solar power it generates through the day while feeding the excess back into the grid. The system reverts to grid-generated power at night, when there is no sun. This is a good option for businesses that operate and use most of their power during the day. A ‘hybrid commercial solar system’ is a grid-connected system with an added solar battery (or multiple batteries).
Commercial solar installation with battery
Does your business operate predominantly at night? Then commercial solar installation is a great way to reduce your nightly running costs (among other perks). Solar batteries store your unused excess solar power generated during the day (instead of feeding back to the grid) and make it available at night. This means you can power your business overnight using your free solar power.
Commercial solar batteries come in varying sizes and capacities ranging from a 20kW battery for small-scale solar system, to megawatt-sized batteries for larger projects. ProSolar can incorporate battery storage that is adequate to support your business needs, depending on the amount of power storage you require.
Critical back-up power
Incorporating a solar battery can provide essential backup power for your business to keep critical lighting and equipment running during outages such as your phone systems, computer servers and operating equipment. It’s a good protective measure against productivity loss and downtime for your business during blackouts.
ProSolar can also install an uninterruptible power supply unit (UPS) with your battery-connected solar system, which facilitates an uninterrupted transition to battery backup power if electricity voltage drops below a set level or stops, protecting electronics and operating systems from damage. If UPS is an important requirement for your business, contact us today to find out more.

Customised commercial solar installation
At ProSolar, we believe in delivering quality, high-performing, customised commercial solar systems that last. Our consultative approach ensures that you receive the right solution specific to the energy needs of your business.
Our experienced technicians will undertake a thorough site inspection of your commercial premises. We will also engage your team to learn about your business operations so we can conduct an analysis of your current and future energy requirements.
Your commercial solar system design and installation will take into account:
- Size and amount of solar panels needed
- The size/shape of your commercial premises (exterior)
- The amount of power storage required for your business
- The path/direction of the sun
- Surrounding environment (trees/shade/obstacles)
- Positioning and angles (tilting) of the solar panels
- Safe and effective placement of key system components
- Existing electrical infrastructure
In most cases, the best location for solar panels is on the roof of your commercial premises. However in some scenarios we may install them on a wall or on the ground (frame-mounted). They can be installed on a variety of commercial roof types, including tiled and corrugated roofs.
Commercial EV charging station integration
Got a commercial fleet of EV vehicles or looking to add a charger for staff? We also do EV charger installation, so yes we can absolutely incorporate a new commercial EV charging station into your commercial solar installation… so you can charge your EV’s with solar! Chat with our team about a commercial solar EV charger integration today.
Maintenance for your commercial solar installation
Commercial solar systems are generally low maintenance, however even the best installations do deteriorate over time due to environmental conditions (weather, dirt and debris) and wear and tear. To preserve your solar investment and keep it performing at its best, it should be maintained and repaired by a Clean Energy Council Accredited Designer and Installer. Your commercial solar system should be inspected and tested annually and we’re here to support you.
At ProSolar, we service and maintain new and existing commercial solar installations including fault diagnostics and electrical repairs, system adjustments and software updates. We also repair and replace solar panels, undertake performance testing (and make adjustments where needed), commercial solar panel cleaning, safety and compliance inspections and more.

Quality equals longevity. That’s why at ProSolar we use only trusted suppliers and brands with well-designed and built solar panels, batteries and inverters that have a proven track record for reliability, durability, and performance. That goes for all your appliances, parts and accessories too.
