Commercial Solar Program

Yarra Energy Foundation’s Commercial Solar program is a free service offering designed to simplify the process of transitioning to rooftop solar or LED lighting. Through this program we have helped several businesses in the City of Yarra reduce their carbon footprint and in turn, their energy bills.

How does it work?

First, we help businesses identify and understand the financial and technical opportunities of installing solar PV. A preliminary feasibility analysis is undertaken with the business to understand the critical success factors for a solar PV installation. Next, we facilitate quotations from a select, credible list of suppliers that will deliver quality, performance and value to match the business's needs.

Case Study: Hudson's Famous Catering

Hudson's installed a 12.5kW Solar PV array, dramatically reducing their emissions and saving over $3000 each year.

We then help businesses navigate the installation process and are here to answer any queries that may arise. The end result is an investment in solar PV that provides ongoing returns for the business and helps to lower the carbon footprint of the community. Our Commercial Solar Program is completely independent and we only recommend suppliers and installers that we trust.
