PROJECTS Client: Paleso
Project: Commercial Solar
Our Customer was looking for a solar system for their commercial business premises. Having reviewed their electricity bills, their average electricity usage was 70 kilowatt hours per day and they required daytime peak power. We designed a solar system to suit, consisting of a 15kW inverter coupled with 15kW’s of panels.
We used the latest Honey Plus 300W Trina solar panels for this job. These panels are backed by a 25yr linear power warranty and have an excellent temperature coefficient well suited to the Central Queensland climate.
The solar panels were mounted in a north facing direction to allow for optimum power generation.
All NRG Solar systems are mounted on Clenergy PV-ezRack mounting rails. This building had a flat kliploc roof which required specialised brackets. Panels were tilted 10 degrees to improve power generation and assist in panel self-cleaning. The rails are certified to the Wind Region C Classification as mandated for the Coastal CQ area.
We installed the latest SMA Sunny Tripower 15000 TL-30 inverter, German made and widely considered to be the market leader. Our technicians also connected Home Manager 2.0 software to the customers PC, laptop or smart phone to the inverter via wifi or Ethernet. This means they can monitor the inverters performance. It is also produces the data required to determine the most suitable battery storage system, should they wish to install one in the future.
The system qualified for 269 Small Scale Technology Certificates (STC’s). The system is trending 2.5 years payback.
