Introduce your bottom line to lighter overheads

The best tenants want the best deal, and Matter’s ground-breaking solar solution is win/win. Matter’s online share platform has changed the energy industry, allowing the landlord to install solar panels and charge their tenant for access to the power. For the tenant, fluctuating charges from electricity retailers are a thing of the past. Their overheads are lighter and effective rent is discounted. For the landlord, effective rent gets a boost, along with value-per-square-meter for their property.

How do I know if my property will be suitable for Matter’s solar service?

Working out if solar is viable for you will depend on a few things about your property, its tenants and their business activities.

Electricity usage in your property
The tenants’ current consumption and usage patterns will act as a good guide to the size of the solar system you will need. Daytime energy use, like running refrigeration or heavy machinery, is best suited to Matter’s solar solution.

The property’s location
Yes, location matters. The sun shines differently in different places, so you will need fewer solar panels for the same energy output in a sunny part of the country compared with a more cloudy location. Simply put, the same systems installed in Brisbane and Melbourne will produce different outputs and earn different returns.

Orientation, design and shading
This affects the design of the system you’re likely to need. Large north facing roofs (in the Southern Hemisphere) with 15-35 degree pitch and no shade are the best for solar. Your solar designer will be able to advise you if you need to do anything special for your system.

I’m a tenant, how will my bill be calculated?

Once the solar system has been installed, we’ll start billing you on behalf of your landlord, monthly in arrears.
We remotely monitor the solar produced by the panels and what you consume. Your bill is calculated using the amount of solar you have consumed in the previous month multiplied by the tariff you agreed with your landlord when you signed up.
We’ll email you your latest bill and you can find this, and your historic bills, in the Matter tenant portal. We also estimate what your grid electricity bill will be so you can check that your energy company got their bill right.

I’m a landlord, how do I get paid?

We will remit your Matter payments to a bank account you nominate via PayPal, direct deposit or other payment methods, as described on our website. The Matter payments will be remitted at the end of each month for each property. Payments not cleared by the end of the month will be remitted in the subsequent month.
