Case Study, Solar Hybrid Ready Energy System, SunPower, Victoria
The Green Power Company installed 11.7kWp PV array comprising of 36 x 327W mono crystalline SunPower solar panels integrated into a hybrid energy system for a rural property in Victoria. The solar hybrid energy system will generate an avg of 43.2kwh per day, obviously varying depending on seasons and daily available sunlight. Base load will be provided by solar power, generating an Avg of 43.2kWh/day increasing to a maximum Avg in Jan of 62kWh/day and a minimum average in July of 18kWh/day. These figures are based on data compiled by The Green Power Company which are consistent with data generated by the Clean Energy Council.
Solar Hybrid Energy System Components
- 36 x SunPower E21 327W (total of 11.7KW)
- 1x Schneider 10kW 3 Phase inverter.
Hybrid System Overview
The house roof was installed with 36 x 327W SunPower solar panels. The inverters and switchgear will be installed in the Garage, protected from the elements. Inverter, Solar Power system will generate an Avg of 43.2kWh day. The Schneider inverter is compatible with a Schneider EMS management system for battery storage in the future.
Based on the 63kW/h daily load data you have supplied me. The yearly power cost are approximately $5900 Per annum. 2012 had a 20% increase in power cost and 2013 had a 21% increase, being conservative factoring an 8% a year increase. By the 10th year the customer would have spent $86,207 in electricity without installation a solar power system.
