Wollongong City Council has installed solar panels equipped with Enphase microinverters on a carpark to reduce its administration building energy costs by as much as one quarter annually.
Each of the 549 solar panels on the council’s multi-storey Stewart Street carpark is equipped with an Enphase microinverter to optimise performance, simplify maintenance and for greater safety. This latest solar system adds to an existing 327 kilowatts-peak (kWp) of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels already installed on various council assets.
The new 219.6 kWp system has solar panels fixed to steel frames to shade vehicles in the carpark. Annually, the solar carpark will generate as much as 316 megawatts hours (MWh) of energy, enabling it to offset about three months per year of energy use by the council’s adjacent 6 Star Green Star-rated Administration Building, as well as exporting excess energy to the grid. Since it was commissioned in late August, the Enphase monitoring portal reports that the system generated 82.95 MWh to November 17, with a peak daily generation of more than 1.7 MWh.
As Australians continue their record-breaking love affair with solar panels, people building new homes are increasingly choosing to include “smart solar” photovoltaic (PV) systems in their building designs.
CSIRO reports that Australia installed its largest ever number of rooftop solar photovoltaic systems during 2020, with more than 362,000 installed nationally - an increase of 28 per cent from 2019. By the end of last year, one in four Australian homes - 2.68 million in total - had solar panels installed.
That renewable energy megatrend has motivated premium Melbourne high-end home builder Pearl Homes to select Enphase Energy as its preferred solar partner, recommending Enphase microinverters to any customers who want to install solar PV systems on their homes.
Premium Melbourne home builder Pearl Homes has chosen to offer Enphase microinverters to its customers to deliver greater safety and better performance if they install solar power systems with their homes.
Founded in 2015 and trading as part of the Mount Waverley-based Pearl Construction Group, Pearl Homes builds high-end homes in the contemporary French Provincial style.
Pearl Homes’ partnership with Enphase means that the builder will recommend installing Enphase microinverters on every solar photovoltaic (PV) system included in the homes they build. Enphase advantages for customers include greater safety, better solar panel performance and longer life, while Pearl Homes can leverage a more flexible system design, simpler installation and greater customer satisfaction.
Pearl Homes Founder and Managing Director Sandeep Sharma said his company had chosen Enphase microinverters because they offered the same value proposition as Pearl Homes. “You are paying for the quality and long-term value of your home as well as your own peace of mind,” he said.
