Solar feasibility for real estate projects
We are partnering with Avison Young to launch our first digital solution: the solar project feasibility model on our carbon accounting platform. We built this to help serve AY's asset owner clients to understand the impact of solar on their tenant's energy bills.

Why solar? To bring predictability to your energy bills.

But to measure the real financial impact, you need to ask: how much energy do you consume at those properties? When during the day is it most efficient? Does it change seasonally?

For commercial properties, it’s possible (and smart) to feed 1/2 hourly energy data to a solar feasibility platform for a whole year. Then you can see the calculated feasibility of solar power for that location.

We’ve created a solar feasibility calculator that shows you the maximum solar potential together with your corporate consumption. You can then combine that data and model consumption data against power generation.

The goal is to predict the usage and impact over the course of a day and a year so you can clearly see how much you can save for the year.

It’s not enough to ask: how much energy can we harvest by installing panels on the roof? How many can we put up there? How much solar will hit that exact spot over the course of a year?

That’s the starting point, but to maximize self-consumption and minimize power going back to the grid, you need to dive deeper and analyse the data.

Our tool does that for you so you can total project cost and savings before you go to procurement.

With digital software, you can do this across 100s of buildings for an organization. You’ll see that, yes, there’s an initial investment [x], but it will generate [y] savings and return.

We built this to help serve AY’s asset owner clients to understand the impact of solar on their tenant’s energy bills. Promoting energy self-sufficiency isn’t just good for the grid and reducing energy costs – it helps protect the grid from congestion as we transition to a low-carbon economy.

Commercial real estate projects benefit from more accurate solar project feasibility models so they can not only realise their path to decarbonisation but save money on energy bills by placing panels where they will be most effective and efficient.

There’s more where that came from!
