As an established World leading manufacturer in hand crafted beer, located on the most Eastern tip of Australia in Byron Bay, Stone and Wood Brewery are growing at a phenomenal rate in order to meet the growing demand for such award winning beers as the Pacific Ale, Jasper Ale and the hand crafted Lager.
With a state of the art new factory in full production and with energy consumption hitting new highs, Enertech Solar was commissioned to design and install a 100kW solar PV system to reduce the energy usage and bring down the peak demand. As Stone and Wood are a completely Australian owned company, they insisted on utilising as much material sourced and manufactured in Australia as possible with the fantastic aim of supporting Australian business, we therefore offered Tindo Solar Panels manufactured in South Australia and Sunlock Commercial roof framing.
Once all of the approvals had been gained from Essential Energy, New South Wales, Enertech Solar embarked on designing the roof layout in accordance with the structural Engineers strict exclusion zones and wind loading limitations, this meant using the entire roof in order to displace the load whilst ensuring it was aesthetically pleasing.
Whilst keeping within budget constraints, we wanted to provide Stone and Wood with the latest innovative technology available on the market and install a system with as little losses as possible; we therefore opted for 5 x Fronius Symo 20kW transformerless inverters owing to their amazing efficiencies, flexibility and long warranties.
To compliment these Austrian manufactured inverters, we installed Huber & Suhner solar DC cable, arguably the best on the market with genuine MC4 connectors, at the termination end, Enertech designed and manufactured a central DC combined switchboard housing Arc protection devices designed to arrest any potential spark before damage can occur, Weidmuller Surge Arrestors designed specifically for Photo voltaic installations, String fusing for each string on the array, and finally Kraus and Naimer 1500VDC isolators all enclosed in a metal distribution board.
