Charles Sturt University has this week officially opened its multi-roof, 1.77 megawatt (MW) solar system at its Wagga Wagga campus in south-west NSW, the tender for which was managed by Solar Choice in 2016.
The solar arrays – which have been commissioned in stages throughout 2017 – are integrated into the university’s embedded electricity network, spanning the roofs of 17 different buildings at CSU in Wagga Wagga. At the time of its commissioning, the system was the largest rooftop project of its kind in Australia, but has since been overtaken by Brisbane Markets (stage 1 of which was also successfully brokered by Solar Choice).
The installation deployed a total of 62 Fronius inverters of differing sizes, and over 6,000 Canadian Solar modules. It will generate more than 2,600,000 kWh (2,600MWh or 2.6GWh) in the first year of operation.
With the opening comes a slew of impressive imagery and footage, including two flyover videos produced by CSU’s Faculty of Arts and Education Technical Team. We’ve included them here for your viewing pleasure.
