Key facts

  • 500k acre property
  • 90kw solar array
  • $1.5m savings across the system lifecycle

Customer Challenge

To reduce its carbon emissions, an Australian cattle station commissioned Enzen to advise on a diesel replacement and cost-saving energy system.

Our Solution

After auditing the customer and analysing the data on the station’s diesel use, the Enzen team proposed a fully integrated off-grid system. The new technology used a 90kW solar array, combined with battery storage, a full monitoring system and demand management control, complete with an ambient-controlled system room to combat adverse heat. The system provided the customer with 20 hours of autonomous renewable energy, with the continued security of a diesel generator back-up.

Outcomes delivered

Overall, the new system will deliver annual savings of more than $55,000 per annum, with accumulated savings of more than $1.5 million across the life of the system. It will also reduce carbon dioxide pollution by more than 80,000kg per year, ensuring the cattle station leaves a positive impact on its environment.
