E-tex Solar PLant 1.4 MW

The Etex Group is a global leader in lightweight construction, improving the quality of living with safe, sustainable, smart, and beautiful materials.

The plant in Melbourne is a large manufacturing facility for fibre cement boards which has an very large power requirement.

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 utilising some installers from Solar Choice’s pre-vetted network. One of Solar Choice’s installers was ultimately successful in delivering the project.

The installed system will feature Risen Solar Panels and Sungrow Inverters. The project also required detailed engineering and structural assessments.

The system is expected to produce an average of 5,740kWh of clean energy each day.
