Solar Choice Commercial has brokered a second 100kW solar PV system for Doug Hall Poultry – this time at the company’s Ellerslie location. The first 100kW system, for Doug Hall’s Millmerran location, was completed about midway through 2015.
With multiple locations along Queensland’s regional Ergon network, electricity bills are a substantial part of Doug Hall’s operating costs. As such, the company has longer-term plans to move away from grid electricity and towards greater energy independence, with solar PV being the most affordable and appealing alternatives.
More of the company’s sites are likely to follow suit through Solar Choice in the future; some of them may potentially include battery storage options.
