Project Detail


The customer wanted to maximise all available roof spaces on the property to harness as much solar production as possible. This would provide both increased energy savings, and improved blackout proofing by maintaining solar generation if a blackout occurred during the day.

Energy security with no compromise on lifestyle

Blackout protection was needed across all 3 phases, with a system output capacity that would mean no compromise to the customer’s lifestyle. Along with the flexibility to expand the system in future if needed.

The customer was dissatisfied that other companies could only meet his goals partially, or advised that what they wanted couldn’t be done. The customer wanted a tailored solution that met all his objectives.


Site Considerations:

Roof space available for solar installation included both the house, and two sheds. Additional catenary wiring was required to facilitate this. The steep driveway and complex nature of the installation meant that an on-site custom fabrication was required.
