Residential Case Studies: Detailing the benefits of a SolShare solar system bought by the owners corporation (strata committee) of an apartment building

The following case studies detail two SolShare solar installations in Australia. The first is a residential apartment building in Adelaide’s CBD and the second is a part residential, part commercial building in Melbourne. The examples show typical information that will be useful when discussing a SolShare solar installation with the other members of your owners corporation: system cost, payback and property price increase. These examples show just how quickly you can make your investment back, as well as helping the environment by significantly reducing your carbon footprint.
