For a country baked in sun, with a coastline of over 14,500km and abundant open space, a case for renewable energy only makes sense. Not for only enviro-conscious organisations, Solar is catching on for companies with high energy usage knowing they can now more than halve the cost of their grid power. Despite the government’s delay in policy updates and some early failures with under-capitalisation amongst installers, several businesses took the initial leap.
Education and the private sector, including Catholic Schools, have been ahead of the policy makers, investing in the renewable sector for exemplary reasons. Mazenod College is one such organisation that committed to Solar with a responsibility to reduce carbon footprint for the future generations and lead by example. Promptly recognised by the government for their efforts, they also received a $50,000 cost saving grant for sustainable living. With the help of Enervest and its partners, the school not only saves extensive power costs for themselves but is also able to benefit the electricity provider by creating a regular source of income feeding extra power back into the grid.
Not just schools, most high energy companies can benefit by making the switch to renewables by levelling the consumption in the day time and feeding the gird over the weekend and nights. Realising that an ROI between 20% and 30% is easy to achieve, the battery technology industry is growing faster than any other part of the sector, following suit. Partnering with Tesla and Fronius; companies that leveraging batteries and inverters with a global foothold, Ross Warby extends an opportunity to bring this value to Australian subsidiaries and the domestic market. This publication sheds light on how the climb towards alternative energies first began, outlines plans for the sector and showcases how you can maximise this value engaging Enervest.
