PEMBERTON AVOCADO FARM

AWARD WINNING RENEWABLE ENERGY DESIGN POWERS

SELF SUFFICIENT AVOCADO FARM

THE CHALLENGE

The client  required the design of a reliable, off-grid solar renewable energy solution to power a five hectare commercial avocado farming operation. A solution was needed to power all of the farms operations including hydraulic pumps used for irrigation crucial during WA's hot, dry summer months.

The farm's regional location did not have grid connection making the high cost of upgrading the network a further driver to seek a 100% renewable energy solution.

OUR SOLUTION

 

Unlimited Energy Australia designed a self-sufficient energy hub consisting of: 53kW PV installation, 160kWh Aquion Energy saltwater battery system integrated with 48kWh Tesvolt Lithium-ion battery system.

 

This innovative and unique combination of battery technologies enable the Tesvolt batteries to manage periods of peak load while the Aquion salt water batteries provide a constant base load supply of energy.

The farm is completely self sufficient running on 100% renewable energy. The energy generated from the 300 days of sunshine per year have negated the reliance on diesel generators.

Our innovative design was recognised internationally by being awarded the

"Smarter E Award" in 2018.
