Objectives & Site Considerations

In April 2018 Cathy from Outback Citrus Pty Ltd brought some land in Cooltong SA. “I started preparing the land and installing irrigation to begin planting my first section of Almonds in July. During this time I also had a shed installed where the filters and fertigation system were installed. I did not have any power at the shed so looked at both solar and having power lines brought to the shed. The quote for both came in around the same cost and I went with solar, as electricity costs are an ongoing expense which could go up in price.”

OTHER OFF-GRID POWER PROJECTS

Brian & Tania purchased an existing off grid home on the Great Ocean Road, but the existing off grid system on the property was too small for their needs and had to be replaced.
The objective was to offset the school’s power usage with solar and include tesla Powerwall battery storage for educational purposes as well as offsetting small overnight loads.
