Commercial Solar Solutions

Save Energy. Save costs.

Renewable energy now costs less than a quarter of traditional energy.

If your business uses most of its electricity during the day, solar could halve your energy bill and deliver an ROI in less than 5 years. With finance options also available, your investment could be cashflow positive in no time.

We provide a full technology pathway from commercial solar to smart energy storage and demand management.

Commercial Batteries FAQs

LGCs are available for solar energy systems that are above 100kW. In a similar way to STCs, LGCs are a government incentive for installing solar energy systems; however, the way in which the incentive is applied to the system is different to STCs. The main difference is that they cannot be deemed upfront like STCs can.

As a guide, one LGC equals one-megawatt hour of eligible renewable electricity. Once created and validated, these certificates act as a form of currency and can be sold and transferred to other individuals and businesses at a negotiated price. LGCs are usually sold to electricity retailers, who are required to surrender a set number of certificates to the Clean Energy Regulator each year.

For more detailed information on LGCs, visit the Clean Energy Regulator website.

STCs are government incentives that help to reduce the upfront cost of installing your energy solution, and apply to systems that are below 100kW. That’s all residential-size systems and some commercial size systems. The number and value of STCs your solution receives differs depending on its size and location in Australia. To be eligible for STCs, your solar solution needs to be installed by a Clean Energy Council-accredited installer, and MAC Trade Services only uses these.

For more detailed information on STCs, visit the Clean Energy Regulator website.

A solar feed-in-tariff is the amount that your electricity retailer pays you for any electricity your solar energy solution generates that you don’t use or store and is instead fed back into the grid.

Feed-in tariffs differ between states and retailers, and between the years in which a solar energy system was installed. If you are unsure of the feed-in tariff you should be getting for your solar energy or how long you will be receiving that tariff for, speak to your electricity retailer or an energy advisory service in your area.

The time it takes to have your solution installed and up and running will depend on a few factors, like the size of your system, and how long your energy provider takes to arrange any necessary meter alterations and your grid connection. MAC Trade Services will help you with all the necessary paperwork and arrange the required applications for your solution, however we cannot control how long your energy provider takes to carry out their work and have you up and running. We will keep you in the loop regarding the progress of your solution and any holdups along the way. The MAC Trade Services installation itself will typically take up to one day for a residential size system.
