COVID-19 has been challenging for many businesses.
However for one lucky local company in the Riverina-Murray or Central West that is about to change, with the region's leading commercial solar installation company, Solar Professionals, celebrating its 10th birthday by giving away a fully installed $10,000, 10kW solar system.
"We recognise that it's been a very tough year for many businesses and being able to reduce ongoing energy costs could alleviate some of the financial stress," said managing director Dan Kimber.
"We turned 10 this month and as a company we thought there was no better way to celebrate than to help out another local business by installing solar and significantly reducing their power bill."
Solar Professionals was formed in Wagga Wagga in 2010 by three school friends (Dan Kimber, Andrew Meurant and Lee Grant) and installed its first system in Manildra in Central West NSW.
Today the team has grown to include staff and offices across NSW, Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia, and has extensive experience delivering commercial solar PV projects across Australia, including installing some of the largest commercial solar systems in regional NSW.
The company is also one of only a few regional Price Purchase Agreement (PPA) providers, which gives organisations access to a solar system and lower electricity costs, with no upfront cost.
The team launched their 10kW to celebrate 10 years giveaway on the 1st of October back where it all began, sharing a slice of birthday cake with Ross and Kate Yelland at their home in Manildra and now there's only a week left for local businesses to get their entries in.
"At the end of the day, business is all about relationships and we've never forgotten where we came from. This is our way of giving back to the two regions that helped us get our start - the Riverina-Murray and the Central West," said Dan.
"We pride ourselves on delivering value to our clients alongside exceptional service, quality products and commercial expertise; and we can't wait to share this experience with one lucky local business at the end of the month."
Solar Professionals' 10kW to celebrate 10 years giveaway ends next Saturday 31 October.
Entrants must own or lease a commercial property located in the NSW regions of Riverina-Murray or Central West and fulfil the terms and conditions.
