Commercial Solar Power System Payback Calculator

Welcome to Solar Choice’s Commercial Solar Payback Calculator tool. Solar Choice has put this tool together to help businesses (and anyone else who is interested) to work out approximate payback periods and return on investment (ROI – or IRR in our case) for commercial solar power; the tool also makes indicative solar system size recommendations based on the pricing & consumption details that you enter.

Does solar make sense for your business? Solar Choice can help you find out

With electricity rates across Australia skyrocketing in recent years, commercial solar power makes more sense than ever, with payback periods for commercial solar systems easily in the 3-5 year mark for most small to medium enterprises (SMEs). As businesses catch on to these potential benefits, they are looking to get educated about how it all works – and how much it costs.
