PROJECT DETAIL

Objective:

Mel Schmidt Panel Works is a panel beating business in Mildura, VIC. With almost all of their energy being used during the day, Loris & Craig from Mel Schmidt wanted to install solar to get rid of their power bills entirely.

Site Considerations:

Solar placement was easy with such a large workshop roof area to work with. The low roof pitch meant installing additional solar to make up for the shortfall. The workshop roof was 4m in height so adequate safety equipment was required, and grid restrictions limited the array size to 30kW.

System Design: 

  • 28kW Trina Solar roof mounted solar array
  • 2 x SMA Sunny Tripower 15000TL
  • 3-phase output
