As the installation of the panels were in the busy parking terrain of the NWK head office, there was concern for the safety of NWK staff. This was managed well by the RenEnergy construction team and no incidents ocurred. The East West orientation of the solar panels ensure a early start and extended late afternoon generation of electricity. The system does integrate well with the diesel power generator that acts as the primary power source in the case of a grid failure.
