Solar Power Update

The solar array has been performing very well since it was upgraded in August last year. The clear sunny days we have been experiencing have allowed the system to work to its maximum potential and in the last 6 months it has generated 29.2 MWh of electricity, which is the equivalent of:

  • 516 trees planted
  • 2,253 litres of petrol saved
  • 44,345 tonnes of carbon saved

Naturally we are very proud of this investment and thought we’d share a photo from a recent climb of the mast (note that not all panels are shown, we’ll need to get a wider lens…or perhaps an octocopter).

Below is a graph taken from our solar monitoring software which displays just how well the system has been operating for the past month. We are forecasting more blue skies ahead :)
