Solenis is an American-owned specialty chemicals manufacturer, producing products for the creation of pulp, paper, oil/gas, mining, biorefining and other markets.
The plant in Melbourne is a large consumer of power and the business has utilized an onsite solar power installation to tackle growing electricity costs and reduce their carbon footprint.
Solar Choice was engaged by specialist energy consultant E&C to perform an initial business case independently assessing the optimal design and accurately estimating the expected cash flows. E&C managed the solar tender for the client and the installation contract was awarded to one of Solar Choice’s installer partners.
The installed system will feature 444 x 450W Eging Solar Panels and 2 x 110kW Sungrow Inverters. The project also required a complex subground AC cable run and trench system to connect one of the arrays.
The system is expected to produce an average of 330kWh of clean energy each day and cover up to 35% of Solenis’ electricity bills.
