Why now is the best time for your business to go solar
Written on the 6 September 2018 by Business News Australia
Karl Brown (pictured), the founder of one of Queensland's largest solar businesses Instyle Solar, has quickly become a guru for the sector.
Where many solar businesses have faltered, Instyle has soared, supplying thousands of Queenslanders with cost-saving solar tech since its founding in 2012.
But according to Brown, the benefits of solar are not just for residential clients, the savings can be huge for businesses too.
"It's never been a better time for businesses to get involved," says Brown.
"We provide systems that are usually going to pay themselves off in a three to six year period. Based on five years, we're talking about a 20 per cent return on investment to the business."
Not only are cost savings for businesses monumental, but the service provided by Instyle goes above and beyond what you'd expect from a solar company.
"If you can afford your power bill you can afford solar!"
Instead of explaining overly-complicated technical specs about solar products, Instyle will sit down with you to explain the financial side of the product and show you exactly how much can be saved in the long term.
"Most of our competitors focus on inverters and panels and talk about all the tech specs, but we're in the house for 1.5 hours and spend the time talking about the financial model," says Brown.
"We're finding that so many still focus on all the tech specs which no one understands anyway; the second the person leaves they've forgotten what they've been told."
"All they need to know is that the brands that are being put on their roof are stable brands that are financially viable and are going to be around for their warranties."
The best thing about solar for business is how useful it can be for an office running during the day. Whilst a residential client might use half of their power during the day and half at night, most businesses would use 80 per cent or more during business hours.
"Most of the power used by businesses is going to be used when solar is going to be working, so it takes away the need for storage and batteries," says Brown.
"This means we're able to provide some pretty great cost savings."
