Objectives & Site Considerations:
The Ilkurlka Roadhouse and Visitor Centre had been running off an existing off-grid system since 2004, with subsequent upgrades in 2011, 2018, and 2020. The Inverter/Charger now needed replacing, as well as an upgrade to the size of the solar array.
Given the extremely remote location, the installation team needed to make sure they were carrying as many spare components as possible. Permits were needed to be allowed access to the community, and every effort was made by our design and technical team to make sure all possible circumstances were prepared for.
