Porta Sawmill

Date

System Size

320 kW

Location

Bridgewater, TAS

Details

1015 x 315W JA Solar monocrystalline solar panels

3 x ABB PVS100 inverters  

This project involved the design, engineering and installation of a 320 kW solar power system as part of a major upgrade to the site. The site previously received green timber from other sawmills which was kiln dried and finished for use as mouldings and lining boards. The upgrade involved the installation of saw milling equipment to enable green logs to be received, thus allowing the entire process from green logs to dry finished boards to be undertaken at the site. 

This additional equipment substantially increased the site electricity load and usage, thus the client wanted a solution to offset this rise in electricity costs. EB Solar designed a system that would offset 60% of the total site usage, providing an associated reduction in the electricity costs. By working with the shed manufacturer we were able to maximise the system size for the available roof area, and maintain the use of skylights to reduce lighting loads. 

This is one of Tasmania’s largest rooftop solar systems, and is a credit to the commitment of the business owners to invest in renewable energy to reduce their costs and their associated carbon footprint.

97 kW

Location

Launceston, TAS

Details

360 x 270W JA Solar polycrystalline solar panels 1x ABB PVS100 inverter.

This system is installed on a large refrigerated food distribution warehouse with a substantial daytime energy load. The system was sized to maximise the value of STC rebate, with all energy generated being used in the facility.

Southern Cross Farms

Date

2018-2019

System Size

400 kW

Location

Owen, South Australia

Details

1,472 x 270W JA Solar panels 16x Fronius Eco 25kW inverters.

 

This major installation occurred across four adjacent chicken farms in regional South Australia. Summer cooling is a major energy load, which aligns with maximum solar generation, ensuring a high onsite utilisation. The system included harmonics filters to rectify adverse site power quality and allow the system to operate effectively.

System Size

60 kW

Location

Devonport, TAS

Details

217 x 270W JA Solar polycrystalline solar panels 3x Fronius Eco 25kW inverters. 

This system is installed on a food distribution and retail outlet. The available roof area was the major constraint to the size of this system, due to the substantial daytime energy load.

Glen Osma

Date

2018

System Size

23 kW

Location

Osmaston, TAS

Details

84x JA Solar 270W polycrystalline solar panels 1x Fronius Symo 20kW inverter.

EB Solar undertook the design and engineering of this system, which is installed on a dairy shed. Dairies have an energy usage profile dominated by morning and afternoon peaks during milkings, which was a major consideration in the system design.

Burlington Berries

Date

2018

System Size

100 kW

Location

Cressy, TAS

Details

370x JA solar polycrystalline solar panels 1x 100kW ABB PVS100 inverter.

EB Solar provided the design and engineering for this large commercial system. It is installed on a berry packing and cool store facility, which has a large daytime energy load. It was sized to maximise the value of the upfront STC rebate whilst still ensuring that the majority of solar generation was utilised at the facility to maximise the return on investment.

Fermer

Date

2018

System Size

50 kW

Location

Osmaston, TAS

Details

165x 305W JA Solar monocrystalline solar panels 1x ABB Trio 50kW inverter.

EB Solar undertook the design, engineering and project management of this system installed on a large dairy farm. The system design had to consider the unique load profile of the dairy shed and utilised all available roof area to maximise the system size.
