Farm­ers able to ac­cess so­lar power with­out out­lay­ing for a sys­tem

North East & Goulburn Murray Farmer - - NEWS -

EN­ERGY provider Ori­gin has launched a new ser­vice al­low­ing farm­ers and busi­ness own­ers to ac­cess so­lar power at a low rate dur­ing the day with­out cap­i­tal ex­pen­di­ture in a so­lar sys­tem.

‘So­lar as a Ser­vice’ al­lows busi­nesses to save money on their en­ergy bills by pro­vid­ing them ac­cess to low-cost so­lar en­ergy at a lower price than they would be pay­ing for their grid en­ergy.

The busi­ness also does not have to pay for the sys­tem or pay for on­go­ing main­te­nance as Ori­gin owns the sys­tem and looks af­ter it.

Ac­cord­ing to Ori­gin so­lar and emerg­ing busi­ness gen­eral man­ager Phil Mackey the op­tion is ideal for com­pa­nies with un­shaded roof space and who plan to be in their premises for the long term and op­er­ate dur­ing the day.

“We know from cus­tomers that be­ing more en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly is of con­cern, es­pe­cially those who use a lot of en­ergy or op­er­ate on a 24/7 ba­sis,” he said.

“So of­fer­ing So­lar as a Ser­vice is en­abling com­pa­nies to cross two things off their list: sav­ing en­ergy bill costs and do­ing their bit for the en­vi­ron­ment.”

Busi­nesses can also en­sure that they keep the same rate for up to 15 years, pro­tect­ing them against any fu­ture elec­tric­ity price hikes, or they can choose a CPI in­dexed rate.

The amount each busi­ness can save will de­pend on their day­time en­ergy needs, roof space, the size of the sys­tem in­stalled and the length of their So­lar as a Ser­vice agree­ment.
