The Company: Wise Winery – Eagle Bay, Western Australia
The Challenge: To deliver Wise Winery over 250,000kW of solar annually to power cool rooms, processing plant, factory and restaurant, whilst reducing costs and environmental impact. All in a semi-remote location.
The Approach: To analyse & verify the power requirement. Then investigate the practicalities of a larger solar footprint to utilise Wise Wines primary consumption of electricity during daylight hours. The remote location meant The Wise Wine factory roof was only sufficient for a limited number of panels so a personalised installation needed to be designed.
The Solution: To provide Wise Winery with 80 solar panels installed on the factory roof, delivering 20kW of power. A further 60kW ground mounted panels in the nearby paddock, delivering a further 15kW and 5kW on the paella restaurant, Lot 80.
The Results: The new system delivers in excess of 40kW of power… more than enough to satisfy immediate demand but flexible enough to accommodate expansion future.
“Through Amanda Energy we have saved money, reduced our impact on the environment and have specific information on our usage… It was a no brainer.”
