Case Study: Solar For Business


Case Study: Solar For Business
After receiving a letter from Synergy stating they had been audited and their tariff would be changed from the L1 to L3 tariff, resulting in a 24.6% increase (6.3cents per unit) Mitre 10 Northam realised it was time to look at the energy management of the business.

With an annual consumption totalling over 130,000 kWh (units of electricity) the 6.3 cent tariff increase would have resulted in their power bill increasing by $6500p.a. and Synergy informed Business Manager, Paul O’Driscol, one of the best ways to stay on the current L1 tariff would be to install a large solar system.

After weeks of research, with quotations from several solar companies, Mitre 10 Northam chose Save Energy Aus to supply and install the solar system.

As Paul explains: “we were inundated with quotes supplying inferior solar modules from China. What we liked about Save Energy Aus was the fact they gave us three options to choose from and provided an in-depth analyse of the running cost and yield of each option“. The business chose premium Japanese Kyocera modules ahead of other cheaper – inferior manufactures “ what we liked about Kyocera is that they have been in the industry longer than anyone and they are the only manufacture with an office in Perth”. Paul went on to add “ they have consistently been the best performing manufacture at the independent testing facilities in Alice Springs and Murdoch University and we have used one on our farm for years!”

Paul was impressed with the professionalism and speed in which Save Energy Aus operated:

“From the first phone call we were impressed with the service we received. The team at Save Energy Aus took the time to discuss all options in great detail and answered all of our questions thoroughly – old fashion service which us country folk like. The installation went smoothly and the Kyocera modules certainly look great!”

When asked, would you recommend Save Energy Aus to fellow businesses or households Paul was quick to answer:

“We are so rapt that we have formed a partnership with Save Energy Aus to offer solar to all of our customers at Mitre 10. In fact we are about to install a 5kw for a customer this week!
