At Emporium Energy we are passionate about working towards a more sustainable future for the planet (and our kids!).
We would love to work with you to reduce energy waste and produce clean, renewable energy from the sun.
We will show you how the business case for reducing your energy bills makes sense for your bottom line now and into the future.
If you are on the journey towards a zero carbon future, we’d love to share the ride …
REDUCE + PRODUCE
Are you looking for a sustainable investment? Of course you want a financial return, but what about an environmental return?
Commercial buildings typically consume energy during daylight hours. Commercial buildings often have large, flat roofs that are perfect for soaking up free, clean, renewable energy.
During the week, solar energy production decreases your energy costs by avoiding importing expensive energy from the grid.
Over the weekend (& holidays!), your solar system exports energy to the grid, further reducing your energy costs. Your energy retailer is required by law to credit you for the solar energy you export to the grid.
Everyday, your solar system offsets dirty, fossil fuel-powered electricity generation in the Latrobe Valley, 150 kilometres away.
This isn’t the future I’m talking about. This is economically & environmentally sustainable now!
If you are ready to look at solar for your commercial building, contact Emporium Energy for a comprehensive analysis of the benefits for your business and the planet.
The letter from my electricity retailer politely informed me that my peak and off-peak rates would rise 20% and 35% respectively by the end of January. The only explanation offered was that it was a periodic review and they had taken everything into account before raising my rates!
I am sure we are not the only business to get a letter like this. The first thing I did was head to the Victorian Government’s comparison website to find a better deal – grab you latest bill and head to Victorian Energy Compare.
But of course, you are still paying too much for electricity and switching retailers isn’t going to change that.
Solar systems protect you from these arbitrary rises in grid electricity. By producing your own energy, solar locks in part of your energy supply at very low prices for 25 years. Think 85% cheaper than today’s electricity rates, let alone what grid electricity will cost in 10 or 20 years time.
If you are interested in future-proofing your energy supply with solar, contact Emporium Energy for a free solar audit.
We have become so used to electricity prices rising; to spending more each year to ‘keep the lights on’.
And yet, we live in one of the best places in the world to take advantage of cheap, renewable energy; to avoid ever more expensive electricity being pushed down the grid to us.

Are you planning to renovate your home on the Mornington Peninsula? You are already including energy efficient LED lighting and insulation. What about solar?
Adding a solar system to the build is a relatively minor cost addition that will reduce your energy bills and carbon footprint for 25 years to come.
We can design systems to suit approved plans or recommend a system to suit your needs. We will include energy savings and payback period, based on similar sized homes on the Peninsula.
Contact Emporium Energy today to discuss what is possible with your renovation or to request a free site audit.
When it comes to commercial solar, an investment that comes with a 25 year warranty, quality should be the starting point for the conversation, not cost.
At Emporium Energy, we start the conversation at how your business uses energy. We will analyse your electricity bills and interval data to design a system to maximise your roof resource and energy savings.
Your solar system comes with energy monitoring as standard. This means you will know how your business uses energy, how much you export and import from the grid. This information could identify energy efficiency upgrades or process changes that could further reduce your energy costs.
A quality, well designed solar system will put you in control of your energy use. Contact us today to arrange a free solar audit of your business.
The most visible part of solar systems is the panels. It’s critical to use the right panel to suit your needs & budget. One size does not fit all.
We only use high efficiency panels with a 10 year manufacturer’s warranty. They also come with a 25 year performance warranty, which means they’ll still produce 80% of their rated power output after 25 years!
This means your system produces more energy per square metre, making the most of your roof resource and improving the payback period.
If you are looking to reduce your grid energy costs by installing rooftop solar, please Contact us today to book a solar site visit at your business.
An efficient and reliable inverter is the heart of any solar system. Not only does your inverter convert solar energy from your panels into electricity for your business (and the grid), it also communicates with you, your solar system and the grid.
This means you can accurately track your business’s energy consumption, managing your processes to improve the self-consumption rate and reduce your dependence on expensive grid electricity.
Knowing how your business consumes electricity is the first step. Contact us today for a solar audit of your business.
Does your warehouse or factory have good natural light streaming through the roof? If so, adding some smart lighting controls might make all the difference to your LED lighting upgrade.
Our LED highbay lights can be fitted with individual microwave sensors that not only sense motion but measure light levels. If you have enough free, natural light from the sun, our lights won’t even turn on!
This means you are increasing energy savings, reducing the payback period and extending the product lifetime. Ask us for a free lighting audit of your business today.
As grid electricity prices continue to rise, the Victorian Government has also increased the solar export feed-in tariff. At 11.3c per kilowatt hour, this more fairly compensates businesses for the excess solar energy they export to the grid.
Instead of designing a solar system for mostly self use, the economics of over-sizing the system to export more energy to the grid have improved considerably.
Not only will the business case for your solar system improve, but your business will be helping reduce the grid’s reliance on coal-fired power.
Bigger could really be better. Contact us for a solar audit of your business today.
