Solar Depot Commercial has already worked
with a number of large automotive dealerships
including Reynella Mazda.
Commercial Special Project Manager, Kay
Thornton-Cohen, said there has never been a
better time to call Solar Depot Commercial.
"With the Aussie dollar so strong, many of the
system components are at an all-time low in
regards to price and that combined with a high
value of STCs (government rebates) and
astronomical electricity prices makes our power
solution an outstanding investment on all
fronts," she said.
Reynella Mazda Dealer Principal, Peter
Altman, recently had Solar Depot Commercial fit
a 24kw solar power system to the roof of his
South Australian dealership premises.
He plans to double its size in a second stage
installation in the near future which would then
go close to eliminating the dealership's current
power bill altogether.
The first stage of Mr Altman's Solar Depot
Commercial solar system is currently tracking at
a payback period of under four years and a return
on investment of more than 30 percent with
depreciation and GST factors taken into account.
Solar Depot Commercial provided Reynella
Mazda with comprehensive performance data
and payback figures which are suitable for
submission to an accountant or financial
manager for verification.
Solar Depot Commercial is undertaking
projects on a national scale.
