520kW Solar Installation
KUGA completed 520kW Solar System install for Extrusions Australia. The solar solution at Extrusions Australia comprised two separate installs. One is 100kW STC Solar System and 420kW LGC Solar System. This allowed KUGA to display its expertise in both the Large and Small-Scale Generator space. The Federal rebate schemes are set up quite differently under each category. KUGA used the largest inverters on the market (Sungrow 110kW) in order to minimize the complexity and installation time. For the PV panels, the German-engineered Q Cells were selected for their high yield and exceptional build quality. The estimated return of investment is under 5 years with savings above $150,000 annually.
450kW Solar Installation
Medline is a manufacturer of disposable medical equipment, who is continually expanding its capabilities and market share. They recognized that the electricity they were consuming was far in excess of what their existing 99kW solar install could provide. To further reduce their electricity demand from the grid, they installed a further 1000 of EGings 450W monocrystalline solar panels. Their total solar capacity was thus 550kW, providing enough clean energy per day to power almost 60 homes! The complication of this install was as soon as you go above the 99kW capacity threshold, you move into a large-scale rebate system. Medline remains a huge advocate for solar energy as they have now taken control of a large portion of their business overheads.
100kWh Big Battery Installation
Ellinbank Dairy Research Centre is a fully functional dairy farm located in Gippsland, Victoria. The farm provides valuable research and assists in making dairy farming more profitable and sustainable within Victoria. Part of their goat of becoming a carbon neutral farm was to install a 99kW roof-mounted solar system combined with a 100kWh battery storage unit. KUGA designed and optimised the solution, ensuring all aspects were accessible for educational purposes.
Combining SOLAR PV and EV Charging
KUGA initially installed a 30kW Solar System to offset the electrical costs involved with running a large commercial freezer. So impressed with the savings, when the owner purchased an electric vehicle he called KUGA straight away to install a second solar system. Rather than powering a freezer, this 30kW solar install would be used to charge his tesla. The KUGA electricians professionally installed the electric charging station at the same time, allowing the car to charge for free from the sun!
