Project Goals:

To install the second stage of Nature’s Organics’ 1.3MW rooftop solar system.

Project Challenges:
  • Fitting 700kW of panel capacity on a 80m x 80m roof space while installing around existing sky-lighting.

  • Coordinating with Nature’s Organics’ switchboard supplier to integrate the 1000A Solar Main Switch into the site’s new MSB.

Project Results:
  • The use of Trina TSM-DDO5A 300W high efficiency modules with a max power density of 183 W/m2 allowed the installation of 700kW of PV modules without installing over any skylights on the newly constructed building.

  • The 2 stages combined place the installation as the third largest rooftop system in Australia as of May 2018.
