Claraville Station - 41.4 kW off-grid
Bye bye diesel – here comes solar!
Duxton Asset Management, who look after Claraville Station in Northern Queensland, began looking into off-grid solar PV systems with battery storage in late 2016. Diesel costs to run the on-site generator for powering the homestead, water pumps and refrigeration rooms have been rising for years, with solar providing the opportunity to reduce the station’s running costs as well as its greenhouse gas emissions.
GEM Energy’s off-grid specialists went to work and designed a bespoke off-grid solar PV system that could take care of the bulk of Claraville Station’s energy needs. In September 2017 we went north to install 41.4 kW of solar PV, or 148 ground-mounted solar panels covering an area of around 300m2, combined with 160 kWh total energy storage.
