Solar PV Impact Assessment concluded

By | Agricultural | No Comments

Place: Clanwilliam

Solution: RenEnergy was tasked to determine the load at their operation.  The main aim was to establish what the electricity usage is over a 12 month period taking into consideration the different load patterns from the different units over the given period. This information was utilised to determine what the correct Solar PV sizing of 130 kWp

Farming operation in Western Cape Commissions Impact Assessment

Place: Somerset West

Solution: RenEnergy was appointed to do a detailed study on the electricity consumption of a farm’s various operations. From the resultant outcomes of the monitoring and simulation, RenEnergy would engineer and design a bespoke integrated Solar PV solution to achieve maximum savings on a Solar PV system which is Micro-Embedded (meaning, for generation for maximum self consumption).  The assessment included looking at the existing maximum critical loads to indicate what the desired size storage.  Certain loads were simulated with regard to the seasonality of the business.

Another successful Impact Assessment completed

Place: Franschhoek

Solution: The client chose RenEnergy to complete an impact assessment to determine optimal Solar PV installation size, for maximum self consumption.  The system reduces dependence on grid supply and took into account office operations immune to load shedding. The system will reduce monthly electricity costs over a 25 year period and will be considered capital equipment expenditure to be written off over 3 years. RenEnergy completed a detailed impact assessment with ground and roof installation options totaling 302 kWp.  Premium Lithium Ion Phosphate storage options were provided to isolate the offices from load-shedding or power interruptions.

Farm commissions impact assessment by RenEnergy

Place: Paarl

Solution: RenEnergy was appointed to do a detailed study on the electricity consumption of the farm on two transformers.  From the resultant information, size a bespoke integrated Solar PV solution to achieve maximum savings. This included looking at the feasibility to combine two transformer points (connections), in order to save additional administration costs. RenEnergy completed a detailed impact assessment with the outcome showing combination of transformer points to not be currently feasible, however that a 70+ kWp system can be installed to displace 70 to 80% of annual energy demand (via Co-Generation).
