Commercial Case Study, 100kWp QCells Commercial Solar Power System Victoria
The Green Power Company supplied McDonald O’Brien with a 100kW Q CELLS commercial solar array on a factory facility in Wangaratta, Victoria. Established in 1972, The fresh fruit and vegetable food company, based primarily in Wangaratta, employs 60 people, and uses a total cold chain solution with fully computerized operations, making them an innovative leader in the fresh produce market.
The factory uses modern and efficient cool rooms, however, refrigeration loads consume a significant amount of electricity. The Company directors decided to turn to solar PV as a means to reduce costs, improve business performance and create a ‘green’ corporate identity. Company Director, Dean Campagna, indicated that electricity costs are a major overhead and by installing solar he anticipated offsetting more than 10% of electricity demand from the grid. The Q CELLS array was installed and commissioned by local company, McDonald O’Brien. System components were supplied by The Green Power Company.
