We recently installed a new commercial solar system at Bakers Delight in Mooloolaba. The solar system comprises 32 Canadian Solar 415w panels, providing a total system size of 13.2KW. This is coupled with a 15kw Sofar inverter, which helps to convert the solar energy into usable electricity.
One of the challenges of this installation was that the roof of the building was flat, which can make it more difficult to optimise the placement of solar panels. However, we were was able to overcome this challenge by tilting the panels in a north-facing direction. This helps to maximise the amount of sunlight that the panels receive, which in turn helps to increase the overall productivity of the solar system.
Another challenge of the installation was the presence of larger buildings on the Esplanade, which could potentially cast shadows on the solar panels and reduce their efficiency. We were able to strategically place the panels in a way that minimises shading and ensures that they receive as much sunlight as possible throughout the day.
Overall, the new commercial solar system at Bakers Delight is a great example of how businesses can benefit from renewable energy. By investing in solar power, Bakers Delight is not only reducing its carbon footprint and helping to protect the environment, but it is also saving money on its electricity bills. The bakery is now able to generate its own clean energy and become more self-sufficient.
This installation is a testament to the growing trend of businesses adopting renewable energy solutions. As more and more businesses recognise the benefits of solar power, we can expect to see a continued shift towards clean energy and a more sustainable future for all.
