Why Solar?

The Fleurieu Milk Co looked at the feasibility of obtaining a Federal Government Grant for the implementing of energy and carbon saving projects.

Our strategic partner, CQ Partners, was able to assist the Fleurieu Milk Co with this application in which the Fleurieu Milk Co were successful in receiving funding from this grant process.

Suntrix was able to design a suitable system that suited the Fleurieu Milk Co’s venue, as well as one that would receive maximum financial benefit from the install.

The 70kw project was split into 2 stages due to the application process required by SA Power Networks.

Currently the Fleurieu Milk Company have 30kw installed and commissioned.

Design requirements

Due to the large roof area of this design, Suntrix recommended that a large system would suit Fleurieu Milk Co better. The roof was covered as much as possible and the remainder was placed on the other South-Westerly facing roof.
