The Diplomat Motel Alice Springs 100kW

About the System

In July 2016, we installed a 100kW SolarEdge solar system for The Diplomat Motel in Alice Springs. This system produces around 175,039 kWh per year, with estimated savings of over $47,000 in grid power consumption! The SolarEdge system offers unparalleled monitoring (right down to each individual panel) and outstanding performance, with a power optimiser on each panel ensuring maximum output from every panel.

Additionally, we also installed an AGL Electroserv Power Factor Correction unit for The Diplomat that will save them even more in their energy costs (see this explanation of PFC from AGL).
