Solar Questions Asked By Business Owners

So that if you are planning to go solar, you can make an informed decision and get started on your solar journey.

1. How much can your business save with solar?

Installing a solar system can help a business save up to 80% on power bills every month. That being said, the savings potential varies depending on various factors like power consumption, power tariffs, solar irradiance, industry type, solar system type (on-grid, off-grid or hybrid) and solar system size of the business. 

You can know the estimated monthly, yearly and lifetime solar saving potential of your business by sending us the monthly power bill of your business.

2. What is the optimum solar system size for your business?

The Optimum Solar System Size is the one that is capable of fulfilling all your power requirements. And it depends on factors such as your power consumption, your sanctioned load, and the solar irradiance of your region which depends on your total shadow-free area, location etc. 

Usually, the optimum solar system size is equal to your sanctioned load, but it can be less if you have low power requirements or high solar irradiance. Your Optimum Solar System Size also depends on the type of solar system that you are considering for your business.

With our World Class in-house Engineering team, we ensure that the proposed system size to all our customers is optimum and best suited to their economic needs.

3. How much will it cost to solarize your business?

The cost of Solarizing your business is influenced by the type and size of the solar system that you choose for your business. However, the cost of your solar system is almost a fraction when compared to how much your business will be saving on power bills with solar.

4. What will be the break-even period of your Solar Investment?

The break-even period of your solar investment will depend on factors such as the cost of your solar system, the energy generated from the solar system, the energy being consumed, the type of solar system, and other factors. But on average, it can be said that the payback period for a solar system is around 3~5 years. For example, a company administration block in Harare with an average monthly electricity bill of $200 will achieve its solar break-even in around 2.5 years; with an estimated ROI of 62.2%.

5. How do you choose the best Solar Installer for your business?

Going solar is a long term commitment and therefore choosing the right solar partner is critical for any entity. And this starts with knowing the capabilities, track record, reputation, presence and offerings of the solar installer. You can learn more in detail about how to pick the right solar partner here.

6. What will your business lose by delaying the decision of going solar?

A lot! Just like time and tides wait for none, the opportunity to save waits for no one either. Think of it this way - if your business has the potential to save $200 USD a month on power bills and you delay the decision to go solar by 3 years, that's a loss of $7 200 right there.
