Projects BELOW are listed as x kW or y MW in capacity. This refers to the nameplate capacity of the installed solar modules. As a guide:
SREC designed and is installing a 30kW PV systems adjacent to a dam, at a Vineyard in Holt, ACT. The land being covered is relatively barren and has been unused for some time. Clenergy "Solar Terrace II" racks are being used to support Jinko 250W solar panels, with grid export via a series of Aurora 10kW inverters.
SREC and PlanetSavers have worked with the Owners' Corporation of a large apartment complex in North Fitzroy, Victoria, to identify and implement energy savings for the Owners' Corporation and for Apartment owners.
SREC is working with a group of Victorians who are passionate about doing something real to help the environment, to develop a community owned solar farm, possibly in the Bridgewater region north of Bendigo. The farm will start small at 100kW but should be expanded to 1MW rapidly and will have the capacity for expansion in further 1-2MW increments. Hepburn Wind is a good example of a community owned renewable energy "farm".
Installation will centre on 16 x 12.5kW Power One "Aurora" inverters, with 1040 solar modules arranged in strings of 13 modules per string. Modules will be mounted on Clenergy tilt frames, with Juralco walkway in between the rows providing safe access for cleaning and inspection. Electricity produced will be sold under a gross feed in tariff.
Installation is ground mount near a remote township and will enable the load on the town's 4 diesel generators to be reduced substantially, reducing diesel fuel bills and diesel operating hours/maintenance costs. The reduction in fuel costs should also enable the town to provide continuous power more often: the high price of diesel has been causing the town to switch off the diesels to reduce fuel costs. This installation may also ultimately include the integration of a 200kW wind generator.
Roof mounted installation on tilt frames, using 250W crystalline silicon solar modules, connected to a series of Power One "Aurora" 10kW three-phase inverters. The system will produce slightly more power than Equestrian Park consumes over the course of the year, effectively making the facility "energy neutral". SREC has prepared a detailed installation manual to step the team through the installation process.
Installation is ground mount, near a large town and connected to the main island grid. SREC's role is supplier of all non-electrical parts, construction manager and installer.

The Billanook College installation is in two parts: a Parent funded installation on the Science lab roof totalling 3.1kW installed in January 2011, and a National Solar Schools Project (NSSP) installation of 10.1kW on the Gymnasium, completed during April 2011.
