Commercial Solar Panel Installation

Commercial solar panels are an excellent way for businesses to reduce, or even completely eliminate, energy bills by using green energy. This means that commercial solar panel installation can greatly reduce operating costs for your business.

While there may be some upfront costs of buying commercial solar panels, the total return on investment on solar power makes this decision a no-brainer!

Macedon Ranges Solar Power installs both off-grid and grid-tie commercial solar systems. Grid-tie commercial solar power systems allow you to sell some energy back to the power companies. All you need are the right solar panels and solar inverters needed to do this.

If you don’t have sufficient space on the roof of your commercial property, you can choose to ground mount your commercial solar panels. Commercial solar panel installation is a great way to secure the future of your business.

Solar Panels For Retail Shops

The number of solar panel installations continues to grow across the country. For businesses with high energy costs, solar power offers a green and cost-effective alternative to the energy supplied by power companies.

Shopping centres and malls use large amounts of energy to power their retail outlets and shops. If you’re thinking about solar power for your retail shops, Macedon Ranges Solar Power can help.

Solar Panels For Factories

Factories and warehouses require large amounts of energy to operate. Because these enterprises are big, they need huge amounts of electricity to power production, lighting and temperature control. This high energy consumption is a major contributor to their operating expenses.

To bring these costs down, many factories are harnessing the power of solar energy by installing solar panels in their factories and warehouses. Macedon Ranges can design, build and install custom solar energy systems for factories and warehouses.

Solar Panels For Manufacturing Companies

Using solar power in your manufacturing plants can significantly lower your energy costs. You can reduce your manufacturing costs by generating your own electricity on-site and using very little or no electricity from the main national grid, saving your business a huge amount of money over time.

Solar Panels In Agriculture

Farmers have harnessed the enormous power of the sun since the beginning of civilisation. The sun grows crops, ripens harvests and nourishes livestock. Almost all aspects of farming and agriculture rely on the sun. Solar Panels in agriculture are the latest step in harnessing the sun’s power for farming – and Macedon Ranges Solar Power is here to offer the right solar power solution for your farm.

Solar Panels For Schools And Universities

Solar panels are not only suitable for residential and commercial use. They are also perfect for learning institutions like schools and universities. Solar panels help to make these institutions more eco-friendly and environmentally conscious, all while lowering their energy costs.

Solar Panels For Daytime Offices

Office buildings are well-suited to enjoy the benefits of solar power, as they consume tons of energy every day and have plenty of space on their roofs and external walls to install the commercial solar panels needed to generate electricity. If you’re thinking about installing solar panels for your offices, Macedon Ranges Solar Power is the best solar partner to work with.

Macedon Ranges Solar Power Commercial Solar Rebate

Solar for Business Program


The Solar for Business Program was put in place to help support businesses in Victoria to reduce their energy costs. This initiative allows these businesses to access and reap the benefits of renewable energy. 

Any qualifying business can take advantage of a rebate of $3,500 to install a solar panel system. It also has the option to apply for an interest-free loan of up to $5,000.


This program allows businesses to reduce their energy bills by lowering the investment cost of an approved small-capacity solar panel system up to a maximum inverter capacity of 30kW.

Eligible businesses can apply for a rebate covering up to 50% of the installation costs of a rooftop solar system up to a maximum of $3,500 making it easier for them to adopt solar technology on their premises. This is in addition to the option of applying for an interest-free loan. 

What this means is that, for any approved system, the total rebate amount is capped at 50% or $3,500 of the cost of the system. For instance, if the net cost of a particular system is $10,000, the rebate amount applied will be $3,500 and not $5,000. For a system with a net cost of $4,000, the rebate value applied will be $2,000 and not $3,500.

Net costs also include GST and any contribution from Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs).
