Hicks Dairy, Denmark WA

Hick’s Dairy in Denmark is one of few automatic milking system (AMS) dairy’s in WA. At the peak of the season, they milk 220 cows through three DeLaval VMS box robots with four out-of-parlor feeders and four automatic drafting gates.

The dairy averaged 108MWh of electricity consumption per year.

Using sophisticated power modeling software, Powertex were able accurately to advise a suitably sized system which would pay itself of in less than 3 years.
Recent bills for the dairy have shown that the solar PV system is on track to pay for itself in less than 2.5 years, with savings >60%

 

Lake Toolibin Pump Shed, Narrogin WA

Toolibin lake lies in the catchment of the upper Blackwood River at an altitude of 300 meters (984 ft) above mean sea level. It is about 300 hectares (740 acres) in the area and 2 kilometers (1.2 mi) in diameter, has a maximum depth of 2 meters (6.6 ft) and is one of the last remaining inland freshwater lakes found in south-western Australia.

The lake averages approx. 65,000kWh in energy consumption per annum, mainly operating pumps. Powertex was engaged to find a solution to reduce energy consumption by installing solar PV and maximize ROI.

Using sophisticated power modeling software, Powertex designed and constructed a suitably sized system which would pay itself off in less than 2 years.

Busselton Off-Grid 15kW Solar 27kWh Lithium Battery Storage

Our customers in Busselton were to transform their farm into an Eco-Village with self-contained chalets, including Tesla Electric vehicle chargers. They were constrained by their capacity from the grid, with Western Power unable to provide a feasible solution in upgrading the existing network.

Powertex was engaged to find a solution which would be within budget and meet their power requirements. Powertex installed lithium battery storage and 15kW of solar PV, together with 12kW of instantaneous power draw. The system has been designed to negate the need for a backup generator thanks to high efficiency solar panels.

Donnybrook Off-Grid 15kW Solar 27kWh Lithium Battery Storage

Our customers who built their dream home in Donnybrook were shocked to find out the costs to obtain power from the grid. Powertex was approached to find a suitable solution which would meet their demands and budget. POwertex were able to successfully deliver a ground-mounted solar array with 10kW off high-efficiency solar panels and 27kWh lithium battery storage. The system was once again designed to negate the need for a backup generator due to the high-efficiency solar panels.

Solar Tile Installation, Margaret River WA

Powertex is the first company in Western Australia to install solar tiles to this amazing property under construction in Margaret River. This system will be coupled with a three-phase Sonnen Hybrid battery system.
