The 4.77MWp Chillamurra Solar Plant at Goondiwindi Queensland; developed and built by YD Projects Pty Ltd and expected to be commissioned in June this year is built with BELECTRIC’s innovative and cost-effective PEG PV power plant system.
“We are satisfied from the experience with the PEG system at Goondiwindi. It offers great savings related to material supply, transportation and installation”, said Glenn Clark, YD Projects sales manager.
“The PEG system’s simplicity and the cost-effective material supply and installations were clearly demonstrated during the Chillamurra Solar Plant. We believe the system has a great potential in Australia”.
This fixed-tilt substructure which is ~80cm above ground offers significant CAPEX costs reduction compared to other substructure systems available in the market. Those saving are substructure material supply and logistics and installation costs.
Two additional PEG systems will be built in Australia by the end of 2017, the 10.8MWp system at Barcaldine Queensland developed by YD Projects Pty Ltd and the 3.3MWp system at Dareton NSW developed by a German investor.
Additional value of the PEG system is related to its uniquely efficient area consumption of 0.7 hectare per MWp. A recent sales activity done for behind-the-meter installation had found the usable project land to be sufficient for 15MW PEG system or otherwise only for 5MW tracker system.
During Q1 2017 the first PEG system was installed in Africa and during H2 2017 the first PEG project will be installed in America.
