MARS Australia has officially launched the largest commercial roof-mounted Solar Array in Ballarat featuring innovative ground-mounted Solar Trackers.

Conergy secured the 210kWp Mars Australia Solar Project and selected BREAZE Energy Solutions as the project manager of installation services.  Conergy's in-house Engineers designed the system and supplied the quality solar components for BREAZE Energy Solutions to install at the Ballarat factory site.

Acting Mars General Manager, Mr Duncan Webster said “This solar photovoltaic installation will reduce energy consumption by 280MW/h per annum, reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 350 tonnes a year and provide net energy cost savings of $50,000 a year.”

The Conergy Solar Project delivers an innovative solution to reducing the Mars Ballarat factory operating costs keeping them competitive in the local market while continuing to produce the highest quality chocolate.
 
Key features of the Mars solar installation include:Mars Photo Downsized Compressed

  • Conergy German-made panels, providing high yields even in diffused light and positive performance tolerance of up to +4.99Wp, backed by a superior linear performance warranty term of 25 years.
  • Rooftop mounting system rated to withstand cyclonic conditions.
  • Two 6kW solar tracking systems, guaranteeing up to 45% higher system yields.
  • Three phase inverter system, providing high yield performance in the field.
  • High performance monitoring system, ensuring optimum tracking of power output throughout the year.
  • Minimal maintenance, further reducing operating costs.  
  • The largest roof-mounted Solar Array in Ballarat.
  • The largest Solar System on a Commercial Business in Ballarat.

 
Conergy selected BREAZE due to their vast amount of local knowledge and experience and long-term support of Conergy product.  Conergy and BREAZE Energy Solutions are delighted to have helped such a major contributor to Ballarat's economy go solar and save.

Stage 1 of Here Comes the Sun is already complete: Working with Nagel Electrics and Castleman Plumbing, BREAZE has installed the first half of a 34kW solar panel array at Woodend Primary School. (12kW of the panels are pictured on this page).

Here Comes the Sun is a community-led and -funded initiative. Funds have been raised through sausage sizzles, an Easter hot cross bun drive, a dinner-dance and many other activities.

If you can help, please contact Andy Kozak: T. 03 5427 2455.

Off-Grid/Standalone Power Systems

More and More Households are chosing to go Completely Off-Grid putting them in control of the Sustainable Sourcing of their Energy and the Costs (no More Monthly Bills !!!)

The Team at BREAZE Energy Solutions really enjoys designing Off-Grid/Standalone Solar Power Systems.  Our Core Team includes a Clean Energy Council Accredited Designer, an Electrical Engineer and an Energy Auditor.  Many factors must be weighed up in order to arrive at a Design that actually provides Enough Energy & Power at the right level of Convenience but comes in within Budget -- and we enjoy the Challenge of juggling these !!!

We take a Whole of Household Energy Budget Approach and will ask you do work with us to do a detailed Load Assessment before offering you a Costed Proposal.   And will help you work through ways of Reducing your Electricity Demand rather than offer you Extravagantly Sized (and therefore Priced !!!) Systems.  We can offer you Hot Water Options that fit into your Overall Household Energy Budget and can reduce the Overall Cost of an Off-Grid Power System.

We work with a Limited Range of Quality Brands such as Selectronic and Victron.  For an Off-Grid Standalone Power System that our customers are relying on, potentially in a Remote Area, we do not want to mess around with Low Quality and Unsupported Products !!!  And we install Remote Monitoring on these systems so we can support you and advise you about your Ongoing Energy Use.

If you have an Existing Off-Grid Solar System, we are familiar with Other Quality Brands like Schneider-Electric, Xantrex, Plasmatronics & Others... and can help you with Inverter Upgrades and Battery Replacement for Older Systems including the required reprogramming of Inverters and Chargers.

If you are On-Grid now and see yourself going Completely Off-Grid later (either because you want the Independence or because you are concerned that you might be FORCED to go Completely Off-Grid if the continuing undermining of the Business Model of the Mains Grid by Solar Power sees it eventually shutdown in remote areas), we can help with a Staged Process whereby we install Grid-Connect Solar Inverters now that can be reused in Off-Grid Systems later in a way that is Fully Supported under Warranty, and then add an On-Grid Battery Set that can be expanded later when you go Off-Grid ...
