The TAFE Solar Power System Project had several specific design and installation requirements. Solgen Energy was able to successfully project manage, design and install the Solar power system that met all the client and site requirements. Some of the key challenges were:
Solgen Energy project managed the entire system installation, from initial concept design through to system commissioning and handover. Solgen Energy worked closely with the Distribution Network Service Provider (DNSP) to obtain all the required approvals and with our client to ensure that the project met their needs and was successfully delivered on schedule.
Solgen Energy’s Clean Energy Council (CEC) Accredited engineers designed a specialised Solar Power System to deliver the maximum power output. Solgen Energy installed a web based monitoring device built into the system to provide TAFE staff with the ability to access real time solar energy generation data
The hardware components chosen for the TAFE Solar System Project were premium high efficiency products from the world’s leading solar manufacturers. The components used include:
The TAFE Solar System Project demonstrates NSI’s ongoing commitment to Green initiatives. The new Solar power system simultaneously provided NSI with immediate financial benefits and a sustainable long term carbon reduction providing a positive benefit to the environment.
The major benefits of the TAFE Solar Installation at the Ryde campus include:
