Solar Farm Investment

Mine Site Solar

Solar power for
Mine Sites is now a very viable option, its possible to save up to 75% on energy costs.
The concept of running Solar power along side traditional diesel generators has always been possible but the cost of solar power generation was limiting, with the reduction in solar power installation costs reduced and the ever increasing cost of diesel fuels its a very clear alternative to diesel or gas generation.
The way Solar Power works in parallel to DG is simple enough, if there was 3 x DG units in use at the facility we would replace the use of 2 x DG during daylight hours and leave one unit in line to take the unexpected demand or a low light condition is experienced (cloud), the remaining 2 DG are connected still in parallel to start if certain voltage demands are not met (night use) the units would auto start and supply until energy generating conditions are met again (daylight)

The advantages of running Solar Power at a mine site?
  1. Direct fuel savings, up to 75%
  2. Maintenance savings, services reduced on running hours, reduced down time as result of DG being rotated when services are required.
  3. Reduced carbon emissions.
  4. Increased carbon credits.
  5. Greener environmental operation.
  6. Greener cleaner social responsibility.
  7. Greater marketing opportunity as result of closer to neutral carbon impact.

What we need to assist:

  1. Cost of fuel to your area of operation
  2. Genset details
  3. Genset coms if any.

What would be needed on site:

  1. A full site assessment would be needed, the actual power used would need to be measured and calculated.
  2. Area suitable in size and position, the units can be moved around the site if needed, the structure is fully demountable and transportable, if the site moves the Solar farm can move with it.
  3. The electrical fit out of the installation again would be subject to site evaluation and the type of generation units in place.

Solar Panels & Tesla

As Solar Power Brisbane specialists in solar power, whether its grid connect or off grid power system design, we service a national client base with world leading solar panels, inverters and Tesla batteries and Powerwall. Solar power installed nationally for residential and commercial sites.
 We provide German inverters and Solar panels, we design and install solar specific to your needs.
The products we use are exactly what we offer on our commercial solar installations.
We also offer the latest solar technology in the form of micro inverters and solar optimisers designed to increase solar panel performance by as much as 17%.
We have recently included Solaredge to our commercial installations with great success and now offer these systems to solar power Brisbane residential homes.

Tesla Batteries & Powerwall

Batteries - Off Grid Power

We can install both off grid and stand alone solar power battery units for domestic and commercial purposes, off grid power solutions using the best design practice and tier one products nationally.
Stand alone batteries and stand alone solar systems are now making ground in the market and removing the need to be grid connected. Whether your are in a remote area, building a new home and would like to consider your power options we have systems to meet all stand alone power needs for residential or commercial.
To find out more about how our battery units can be fitted directly to your current solar power system for little effort and cost, please visit our Off Grid Solar Power Units page. For new solar power systems, and full details on stand alone battery units please visit our Group Partner's page.

Poultry Lighting & Power Factor

LED Lighting, Voltage Optimisation and Power Factor correction will significantly reduce operational costs, our observations have seen most sites running a Power factor of .72 to .88 which will see an increase of operating costs between 12% to 30% on most sites, our Voltage optimisation units, LED lights with built in sunrise sunset controllers coupled with our variable speed drives that operate the fans reduce power factor. VSDs will help stabilise the growing condition and improve returns, fans don't have to run at 1005 to get the best results through 80% of the growing cycle, if we reduce fans speed by 25 we increase savings by 20%.
Chicken farms are at the mercy of the energy providers and retailers, better energy supply and a controlled voltage equals better returns, less light failure, less burnt out or failing fans, less heat, and better overall growing conditions.
