Solar for Factories and Warehouses

Commercial solar solution and energy efficiency for a mid-sized factory in Brisbane. The Engineering Factory operates during business hours from 5 am to 9 pm, with the peak hours being mostly from 3 pm onwards.

Three Fronius inverters installed on a wall and connected to the meter box of a commercial warehouse, assisting the powering of the factory with solar power.

Energy Generation and Usage

The factory has taken a proactive approach to reduce its energy costs by integrating solar panels into its operations. The solar array, comprising 60kw on the East roof and 40kw on the West roof, covers close to 50% of the factory's energy needs. This strategic placement ensures that the building primarily runs on solar energy from 9 am to 4 pm, significantly reducing its reliance on grid power during these hours.

Return on Investment and Cost Savings

The decision to invest in solar power has proven to be financially prudent, with the system's return on investment estimated at 3 years. Over the lifespan of the system, the accrued savings from reduced grid power consumption are substantial, further underlining the long-term benefits of this sustainable energy solution.
