Overview

This agricultural site required a grid tied solar PV installation to reduce its overall consumption and dependence and on utility energy supply. The site produces fruit for the commercial market and is heavily reliant on a consistent supply of energy to power pumps for irrigation and cold room storage units. Solar PV was a financially attractive, reliable solution which best met the client’s needs. Being a farm, this is a large site with multiple utility connection points existing . Apart from providing a consistent energy supply, the focus was to reduce the amount of utility connections to a single point into which the solar tied in to. Thereafter power is distributed to various points across the site via a microgrid which was installed in conjunction with energy generation component. A backup generator was also installed.
