100kW Commercial Solar Case Study

Dentro Joinery was established in 2007 and is a specialist industry leader delivering joinery services to commercial clients. The business operates from new facilities in Prestons NSW with all new machinery.

With power bills of over $30,000 per year, Dentro asked SolarBright to propose a suitable commercial solar solution.

Installing a commercial solar system for your business is a straight forward decision. As with all business investment decisions it is all about the Return On Investment (ROI). When proposing a commercial solar system for a business, SolarBright examines the current power usage patterns, and design a system that suits their requirements.

Using an advanced satellite-based solar mapping software, SolarBright maps the solar panels onto the roof. The software takes into account the location, panel model, panel tilt and orientation to produce a report that gives the estimated output of the system allowing us to calculate estimated yearly savings and payback time.

Customer Reviews

  • 'Solar Bright sales person Roy was the main reason for installing the solar panels at home, he is a very courteous & patient person, who had professional answers to my queries. The panels were installed 1 week earlier than anticipated. The whole installation was done by the end of the day. The system is working very good. Thanks Roy & all the personnel @ Solar Bright.'

  • The installation of the Maxlight skylight has transformed my kitchen and living area into an inviting well lit room, which is the focal point of my house. Before I contacted SolarBright no activity was possible in the kitchen without turning on the electric down lights. I could not be happier with this new product.
