1.2MW Solar Installation
KUGA completed a 1.2MW rooftop solar installation in Melbourne West. KUGA Electrical was selected as the successful EPC partner for a 1.2MW solar installation in May 2022. In addition to reputation and quality, the key selection factor was turnaround time. The client needed a supplier with the capability to install by the end of the financial year. The turnaround from the initial site inspection through to practical completion was 10 weeks. In addition to the accelerated timeline, quality control was paramount and the KUGA install was subjected to Agile Energy two external consultants who independently ensured every aspect of the system was optimised and compliant.
845kW Solar Installation
Heritage care is a leading, privately-owned aged care facility network. To reduce overheads across their portfolio, they engaged KUGA Electrical to install solar power on six of their sites across Victoria and New South Wales. Many of the facilities had complicated roof topologies often constructed from tile. Access and noise restrictions in consideration for the sensitive residents were top priorities. Expert installation and project management experience were therefore essential. Ultimately, 845kW of solar power was installed across the six facilities. The panels selected were the smaller 60-cell 370W Hanwa Q Cell PV modules. The solar project provides over 3,000 kWh of renewable energy every day to Heritage Care. This equates to almost 1,000 tonnes of CO2 being removed from the environment per year.

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.
