UncategorizedOff-grid solar systems: Is this a “new norm” for SMEs?


The increasing prices of electricity, decreasing cost of technology, and continued political incompetency are urging a growing number of Australian businesses to spend money on solar energy systems perth WA mainly off-grid solar systems including solar batteries.

According to the Clean Energy Regulator forecast, the commercial solar panel industry will grow four folds and can provide large-scale power stations having huge electricity production capacity.

But still, a question is how many businesses and enterprises are changed to off-grid completely? And whether it’s worth it?

As per a discussion at Smart energy Conference, Sydney- There’s no lack of small and medium businesses in Australia, that are seriously planning to go completely off-grid; since homeowners are already ready but what about businesses?

North Queensland located Linked Group Services in Mackay comes under that category.

However, different trade services companies which are focusing on developing sustainable energy solutions for mining, agriculture, and rails have taken a leap and are well in the process of transforming to the off-grid.

And as per a study, taking this decision is easy. One of the most important reasons is complete electricity independence and it’s not only from the point of view of prices or issues in network dependability but also from the infinite policy confusion hidden under it all.

The grid power is somewhat irregular in Mackay, therefore if you want to develop your own manufacturing unit, it’s important to power it with the help of tried and tested technology.

If your business has approx 80 to 100 employees then getting the right solution to take your business off-grid isn’t very difficult.
