The property SWER Network connection for Edson Piggery was insufficient for their needs – both now and for any future expansion. This made off grid an attractive option.
The off grid system would need to power the Piggery feed lots, farrowing sheds, staff facilities, and growing pens.
Edson Piggery secured funding through the Coles Nurture Fund, for the installation of the power system – as well as other sustainability enhancements at the facility.
Ground mounted solar was deemed the most appropriate for the site, and land was prepared for the installation of the arrays.
A new shed was custom-fitted on site to house the battery and inverter equipment.
- 296 x Trina 310W Modules (91.76kW)
- Ground Mounted Frames at 30° pitch
- 2 x SelectSun 40k Solar Inverter
- 3 x Selectronic SPPro Inv/Ch
- 120 x BAE VRLA Batteries (535kWh)
Stringent project management enabled a streamlined installation process, despite unavoidable product supply delays that occured.
The off grid solution provided will generate enough energy to power the entire farm, slashing long-term power costs and cutting emissions.
A seperate grid connected solar system was also installed on the adjoining home.
