Our Customer Story

We entered into a rental agreement with no upfront costs. We want to be drawing as little electricity from the grid as we possibly can, producing electricity in a sustainable way and returning electricity to the grid when we can.

Is your school an independent school?

Victorian Schools Solar Rental offered by Green Squares Energy

Planet Ark Power and its finance partner, Green Squares Energy, have created a unique finance package so schools will be able to derive the savings offered by installing solar.

This is an exclusive Planet Ark Power initiative for Victorian government schools. If you are an independent school contact Planet Ark Power on 1300 187 343 to discuss a solution for your site.

Enhanced Cash Flow

Receive significant cash flow benefits from day one with a 12-year initial rental term followed by an 8-year extension operation and maintenance schedule. The solar system is ensured to be utilised for the duration of its 20-year lifespan without the school obligated to own or operate and maintain the system.

Operation & Maintenance Service

Each system is covered by an operation and maintenance (O&M) service agreement. This ensures the system is performing at peak capacity at all times and any irregularities are promptly identified and fixed. The Rental Period and Extension Period of the O&M Service includes:

  • equipment replacement as required
  • real-time system monitoring and quarterly performance reports
  • an annual physical inspection by qualified technicians
  • site visits as required to ensure maximum system performance.

During the 12-year rental period, the cost of the O&M Service is included in the monthly rental payments. The cost of the O&M Service during the extension period will be presented in your school’s proposal and is subject to solar system size. At the end of the rental or extension period, the school can elect to have the solar system removed at no cost.

Flexibility to Upgrade

The system is future-proofed for the life of the term as upgrades for your site can be integrated into your existing rental structure. Upgrades include system expansions, battery storage and new technologies when they become viable for the site.

Administration

The billing, collection and administration are performed by the financier, Green Squares Energy.
