Solar power your business before June 30 - reduce your tax, reduce your electricity bills!
The end of the financial year is fast approaching. If your business is looking to reduce their electricity bills for the next 20+ years, solar has never been more affordable. Running your business on solar power is now up to 50% cheaper than mains electricity, even at current rates!
Sign up for solar on your business before June 30, and you can also gain significant tax reductions. Systems up to $20,000 plus GST could be eligible for immediate upfront tax benefit. Or you can install a system with no deposit upfront, and simply use your solar savings to pay off the system.
Tag your workplace or boss, if you think your business or school needs to think about solar power.
