Solar Power

Solar Powered offsetting up to 396.1 Tonnes of CO2 per year

AllBiz is one of the first privately owned commercial premises in the South of Adelaide to install a solar power generator of 10kWp or greater offsetting up to 396.1 Tonnes of CO2 per year

This power system is capable of providing the energy requirements of more than 3 average SA homes, and will offsett tonnes of CO2 emission every year.

On average this solar power system is estimated to yield 14.62MWh of electrical energy per year**, offsetting up to 396.1 Tonnes of CO2 

The system is mounted on the Northerly-facing roof and effectively shades the roof of the building, reducing up to 160kW of heat load on the building through Summer.

* these PV modules are amongst the highest performing technologies on the market in terms of units of energy yielded for total solar power (that is kilo Watt hours (kWh) per kilo Watt peak (kWp)). For a comparative review of technologies operating in Australian conditions, see the Desert Knowledge Area Solar Centre at http://www.dkasolarcentre.com.au/ and look up technology 8. The modules take up more surface area than other PV technologies, but offer a superior performance in high temperatures and are shade tolerant.

** All solar modules degrade slowly over time. Solar Power output is guaranteed for 25 years by the manufacturer to lose no more than 20% of rated power over this period. Actual degradation of power systems is typically much less than is warranted.

Our environmental system is tailored to our operations and processes, including all customer, supplier and regulatory requirements.
