The case for installing PV Solar for a business is really based on the following;

  • Sizing the system to meet the daytime needs only, unless there is significant night time load and which justifies installing batteries.

  • Having minimal or no export capability. The FIT in Victoria and most states does not justify export for generating revenue for systems under 100Kw.

  • Agreeing on the payback period required for the investment. Typical payback periods for high quality commercial installations using microinverters are 4 to 6 years. If lower payback periods are necessary then using string inverters and lower quality modules can provide better payback periods,  but at the cost of reduced performance, limited monitoring and higher life cycle costs.
