SOLAR SYSTEMS & POWER SAVINGS
With more than 1.57 million installations around Australia, it’s easy to see that Solar PV is often the first choice for customers wishing to reduce electricity costs and improve sustainability.
With longer payback periods than other energy efficiency measures, the economics of Solar PV make it a long-term investment for large businesses. It’s important to get the right advice upfront.
Through our partner, Solgen Energy, we deliver an end-to-end, turnkey solar PV solution that can be implemented on its own or as part of your overall energy efficiency mix.
Unlike some operators, we don’t just recommend the biggest system we can fit on your roof. Instead we analyse your data and take in to consideration all your energy efficiency activities.
We start the process with a site assessment. For this we analyse your actual energy consumption history and your site’s solar power production potential. While most of this can be done via desktop analysis, a physical site assessment may be required to check your electrical configuration, access, dimensions and roof condition.
As we look at the big picture, we might also recommend other energy reduction measures to optimise the scale of your Solar PV system.
Working with photovoltaic engineers we then design the most appropriate Solar PV system tailored to your circumstance. We make recommendations on the correct location, orientation and scale and provide a detailed quote including payback periods and financing options.
On acceptance of the quote, we project manage all aspects of construction and installation. We only use tried and proven technologies installed by accredited technicians in accordance with best practice and Australian Standards.
We also manage approvals and applications for relevant government solar incentives and solar feed-in tariffs and look after grid connections, ensuring seamless project delivery and minimal disruption to your business.
With all Solar PV systems backed by 10 year onsite replacement warranties and an operations team on hand for ongoing support, monitoring and maintenance, our commitment to service continues well after installation.

GREEN ENERGY SOLUTIONS
We’re always on the lookout for innovative ways of delivering green energy solutions for our customers. See how we recently helped UTS unlock a new renewable energy purchasing model via their electricity account.
“To achieve our greenhouse emissions reduction targets and decrease our environmental footprint, we need to think creatively for innovative solutions both on and off campus. In this case, ERM Business Energy listened to our needs and delivered a clever, tailored solution that met our objectives and was easy to manage as part of our overall energy account.”
