Eastern Creek Solar – 44kW:
The owners of this large industrial space in western Sydney knew they had a lot of solar potential, but weren’t 100% sure on how to deliver a reliable and cost-effective solar project. Voltio initially helped this customer in a consulting capacity, before earning the opportunity to deliver two solar installations, one at the Eastern Creek site and a smaller system in regional NSW.
Working in partnership with the client, and building a solid understanding of their growth plans, Voltio provided a customised recommendation regarding the most suitable solar panels and inverters to use. We also split the delivery of the project into two parts to better suit the customers needs, an additional 60 kW of solar generation will be added at a later date when everyone is ready to move ahead.
