Local South Australian business’ second dive into solar

Western Clinic is a locally owned and operated general medical practice providing quality and affordable healthcare services in Torrensville, South Australia.

Having experienced the benefits of solar in their old practice, when it came time to move to a new office building, they decided to replicate their previous success and engaged Solgen Energy Group to design and install a solar power system for their new building before moving in.

The resulting 30kW system is forecast to reduce electricity costs annually by $12,000. With this sizeable return-on-investment it was cheaper for Western Clinic to finance a solar system than pay electricity bills every year, giving them a positive cash flow from day one.

Solar power project details

Client: Western Clinic
Location: Torrensville, SA
Date completed: December 2016
Solar system peak capacity: 30kW
Panels: Trina Honey 290W
Inverter: SMA Sunny Tripower
Green savings:  49 tonnes of emissions per annum
Solar electricity generated: 46 MWh per annum

Right from the beginning of the project, Solgen Energy Group worked with the client to ensure customer satisfaction and that the best possible system was implemented. The installation design included walkways in certain positions to allow for easy cleaning – as requested by the client – and top of the line Trina Honey 290w mono panels and an SMA Tripower inverter were also included for their durability and reliability in the extreme conditions of South Australia.

Installation took only 3 days and was overall a seamless process. Given renovations were taking place before installation, our consultants suggested to the client that these renovations include a floor to roof cavity in the wall with a conduit to be included. This ensured that wiring and cables would be out of sight and protected after installation – producing a tidy result for the customer.


The installation of a 50kW photovoltaic system will:

  • Generate an annual estimated energy output of 66 MWh of renewable energy.
  • Demonstrate the commitment of Airefrig in adopting renewable energy and sustainable practices.
  • Offset an estimated 46 tonnes of emissions a year.
