Taking Northway Honda solar

Rooftop solar set to reduce Northway Honda’s electricity costs.

Northway Honda were looking for an energy efficient solution to reduce their operating costs. Here’s how they shifted gears to make solar an integral part of the business.

A drive to change energy use
Northway Honda uses energy to light showrooms and run powerful equipment in workshops. It’s no surprise that their energy costs were a top five business expense. Their goal was to reduce energy use and lower their carbon footprint. With a range of renewable energy options, we found a solar solution to help the business change its energy use.  

Looking skyward at rooftop solar

We installed a 70.2 kW system. The installation had no upfront costs with AGL’s Solar Smart Plan, also known as a Power Purchase Agreement. They simply pay for the energy produced by the system over the next 10 years with our low solar energy rates.

26% per year

Reduced grid energy consumption¹

Up to $26K over 10 years

Financial savings²

100 tonnes of CO₂e per year

Environmental impact³

The rooftop solar system was installed quickly without interruption to the business operations. Going solar gave Northway Honda more time to focus on its customers.

1This is an estimate based on AGL’s understanding of the customer’s annual energy consumption at the premises at the time of proposal and AGL’s modelling of the solar system’s expected annual energy output at the premises at the time of proposal, taking into account predicted export to the grid.

2This is an estimate of the difference in energy costs payable by the customer over the relevant period, before and after installation of the solar system. This estimate is based on various assumptions at the time of AGL’s proposal, including in relation to the customer’s annual energy consumption at the premises, modelled solar energy generation and export at the premises, the customer’s retail tariff structure and feed-in tariff, and the price payable for solar energy.

3This is an estimate based on AGL’s modelling of the solar system’s expected annual energy output at the premises at the time of proposal, converted using the relevant National Greenhouse Account Factor for scope 2 emissions at the time of proposal.
