The Village Kitchen is a local, family owned manufacturer of both cook-chill and frozen portion control desserts, stewed and pureed fruits as well as a range of seasonal Christmas lines, based in Perth, Western Australia.
Installing Solar PV on this site had its challenges, not only did they have 2 separate meters, it had limited roof space with a number of air conditioner units and various other obstacles. The roof itself was constructed with an out dated clip lock system with no screws, so the design was very tricky. After much planning and number crunching, looking back on the previous years consumption on each meter we decided on a 10kW & 20kW Fronius Symo inverters connected to 138 x 260 Watt BenQ Polycrystalline panels on the Australian made Sunlock commercial mounting system in landscape. Our installers did a fantastic job fitting all panels with no shading issues.
Our client is very elated with the reduction in power bills, by over $14,000 per year and the system is running like a charm. Not only did The Village Kitchen receive $27,676 in Government incentives (STCs), they were also able to claim the GST (not to mention the tax write offs). The System is on track to pay for itself in less than 3 years.
Kevin, The Village Kitchen managing Director says its one of the best investments he has ever made and thinks all businesses should install Solar, even if they are leasing their building.
Perth businesses will benefit from solar, particularly business with refrigeration, & those open 7 days/week.
