Hurunui College were converting from old coal boilers to heat pumps – so needed a solution for power. Solar seemed a good fit for them as the main power used is during the day. Power costs are now a huge cost to the school, so long term savings and the renewable energy of Solar where a great fit.
The College has installed - 88 x 290w Panasonic panels - total system size is 25kW + a Fronius Eco inverter which is also 25kW.
Katikati Bowling Club
The club is one of the most recognised bowling clubs around the BOP. They own their own land and building and each year they look at what they can spend their money on. This year they looked at solar energy as the club is open during the day and not at night. It made sense to reduce the power bill and invest in solar energy
The club has installed 30 x Panasonic 290w panels = 8.7kw with a Fronius 8.2kw inverter
