Janison IT394 Harbour Dr, Coffs Harbour
25.2kW - This array is comprised of 84 x 300W Moncrystalline panels producing 38,211 units of electricity per year. Half of the array is on tilted frames to compensate for the reverse pitch roof and clear plastic spikes were installed around the edge of the panels to deter sea birds from landing. A monitoring system was installed to provide energy consumption and solar production statistics.
The management team at Jansion wanted to set an example to their employees and the environmental impact of traditional energy generation was of high importance to the owner.
The high proportion of solar production being consumed on site gave the project a cash break even point of 3.12 years.
