Return on Investment

At CGS Commercial we consider solar as a financial investment. This means that it must deliver investment returns just like any other financial investment.

CGS Commercial can provide your business with a tailored proposal addressing all investment considerations such as;

  • The capital outlay of the investment
  • The investment yield
  • The payback period
  • The Net Present Value (NPV)
  • Tax Advantages

CGS Commercial will provide all the necessary information for you to make an informed investment decision on installing solar power at your premises. In the proposal you will see the financial benefits through our detailed forecasting and financial data. It will inform you about your potential to reduce your electricity bills and carbon footprint whilst improving your competitive edge by being seen as ‘Green’ and environmentally responsible.

Despite the initial capital outlay, your long term savings on your electricity bills will by far exceed your costs. The price of solar power has dropped dramatically over the last 24 months, while electricity prices have skyrocketed, it will only continue to rise.

You can generate electricity at a lower cost than purchasing from a utility provider. If you are paying more than 20c/kWh for your daytime electricity usage, a system sized to your daytime load will provide a payback period between 4 and 6 years. In the long term this translates to a huge reduction in your medium to long term operational costs and the electricity you generate is essentially free.
