Project Comments The Arnold Service and solar team have provided the design and construct of a 30 kW solar installation for our valued EWP supplier Paul Cannan of All Access Hire
Paul and his business partner Mick of Ace Rentals called us into their new building at Luscombe (Yatala) a few months ago to investigate methods to save on their electricity bill.
During the energy audit we identified all of their highbay lights remained on all day for no reason and they operate many battery chargers to charge up the EWP fleet they hire out
The new building they had moved into had ideal roof space for the 30 kW solar system to decrease the business day time energy costs associated with the battery charger and workshop lighting loads
We suggested a timer for the workshop highbay lighting to minimise operating hours when staff were not present in the workshop to save on their electricity bill
We also looked at the work the office Air-conditioners were doing and reviewed the temperature settings to have a good balance of cooling and energy consumption
