In 2012, NWT Energy installed a 200 kilowatt-peak solar PV system with REC 240PE panels on an Alumero mounting system with ABB TRIO inverters. Since then, they have reduced their electricity bills substantially, generating 180,000kWh annually.
Not only has the farm reduced its carbon footprint, they have also received sizeable income from Feed-In Tariff payments and export payments. As with all of our installations, we recommend regular cleaning and maintenance to maintain system efficiency. Especially in farm environments, dirt can quickly build up on the panels and around the inverters, reducing the overall effectiveness of the system.
