What are the benefits of Community Solar?

The main advantage of Community Solar is that it enables your building to generate renewable energy that it can use to power itself and rely less on the grid.

Install solar and we’ll give you lower common area rates that could save you thousands each year.

The demand for solar is only climbing so it also provides a selling advantage to the growing market of eco-conscious buyers, and helps future-proof the building from potential regulations

How is solar used by my apartment building?

Solar power you generate is fed into the Embedded Network before the site draws power from the grid. This allows the building to use clean energy first, which doesn’t cost you a thing.

Do residents receive a feed-in tariff on energy bills?

No. Solar is sized in a way to cater to the load which means no feed-in for residents. As residents are supplied the generated solar energy, the main advantage for them is the peace of mind that their carbon footprint is reduced and they’re part of a progressive living community.

How do you access the solar system?

Through the access keys provided by Strata, which is often kept somewhere secure on-site. Roof access is usually arranged through the building manager.

How does waterproofing impact the installation of anchor points for solar panels?

For a new building, solar anchor points are installed before the roof is waterproofed. This helps ensure that the waterproofing is not damaged in the installation process.

For existing buildings, we install anchor points then waterproof over the affected areas.
