El Passo Motor Inn – Port MacQuarie

Si Clean Energy have just completed another commercial solar PV installation in Port Macquarie for the El Passo Motor Inn in the heart of the town centre. The size of this system was 32.5kW and was designed to offset as much of hotels daytime power usage used in meeting the demands of the guests and daily customers.

Maximising the roof space available was a key factor in the engineering layout and design. There were several options to consider and through detailed engineering design we were able to locate all the panels centrally on one central rooftop for the main 30kW system. The building chosen offered excellent solar options with no shade challenges affecting the positional design for the panels.

There are two systems installed, 30kW on the main building as well as a smaller 2.5kW system located on the office rooftop.

Using a total of 130 Hareon panels and 3 x Solis inverters enabled us to provide the 32.5kW system. The project took one week to complete and throughout the entire installation there was no disruption to the daily activities for the Motor Inn.

Using the latest technology and providing the highest quality products and support, Si continues to be one of the most respected companies in Australia for commercial PV installations. We understand that quality engineering, products and advice are the foundation to every customers investment. It is our goal to design, supply, construct and maintain our systems ensuring optimum performance and that each customers expectations are not only met but exceeded.

We are delighted to have contributed to El Passo’s long term energy strategy and environmental sustainability and look forward to developing the system in the future to suit the business needs.
