Newcastle Surgical Clinic goes SolarSetting a benchmark to industry that solar can improve your bottom line
The Newcastle Surgical Clinic in Charlestown had a 15.3kW solar power system installed late 2012. It was installed and fully commissioned in a single day the last Saturday before Christmas 2012 by a team of 10 tradesmen.
This system has been installed on a north east facing roof on a pitched frame at approximately 20 deg pitch. With this and the current shade impact of 5% taken into account this system will produce approximately 53kWh per day on average over the year.
A complete monitoring and data logging system includes the following
- SMA Ambient Air Temperature Sensor
- SMA Sensor Box including irradiance and module temperature sensor
