earthconnect completed a 20.0kW Solar Energy System for the Martindale Winery.

The System will run their Dam Pumps, and provide the Winery with approximately 29.2MWh of Renewable Energy pa, and an estimated reduction in CO2 Emissions of 31,244kg pa.

The System comprises of;

  • 250W JA JAP6 Solar Panels,
  • SMA 20,000 Inverters,
  • SMA Sunny Portal Communications, and
  • Clenergy Racking.

The Project had its challenges, as the Array Tables had to follow the run of the land, and be tiered down the access road.

Footing embedment requirements had to be maintained, however the columns had to be adjusted to allow the racking to follow the ground contours.
