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.

    • Tricky Skylight Install! Great service, especially the installer Sam. We had a tricky install for the skylight with an old house and ornate ceilings. That didn’t stop them. I spoke to the team at the store to clarify details then when he came out he was able to get it installed in under 2 hours - perfect. Thank you.

    • Hi SolarBright, I wanted to let you know that the installation of the solar panels went well today. The electricians you sent out were very professional and good spirited despite the 40 degree heat. Thought to provide some positive feedback for the work they performed today and that they were very good contractors. All the best and Merry Christmas, Lilian
