earthconnect completed a 27.0kW Solar Energy System for a Newcastle Strata Building, Honeysuckle.

The System will provide the complex with approximately 39.42MWh of Renewable Energy pa, and an estimated reduction in CO2 Emissions of 42,179kg pa.

The System comprises of;

  • 250W Jinko Solar Panels,
  • Fronius Symo 15kw Inverter,
  • Fronius Symo 10kw Inverter, and
  • Clenergy Racking.

The Project had its challenges, as the building was 8 stories high, and mounted on a suspended concrete slab.

Crane access was limited, so all material had to be transported to the roof via elevator.

The slab was assessed to ensure that there was no tension cables embedded within the penetration zone, and our consulting engineer designed an adequate solution to fix the Solar Mounting Racking.
