SolarTerrace-IIIA by PVezRack Selected for 228kWp Project
Clenergy, a leading global solar solutions provider, is thrilled to announce the selection of SolarTerrace-IIIA as the mounting solution for a 228kWp solar installation in Canada. Situated in Vulcan County, Alberta, the project is set to transform a grain and pulse farm into a sustainable energy source.
The realisation of this sustainable property, owned by Page Ranches, is the result of a collaborative effort between multiple solar companies dedicated to delivering an innovative and environmentally conscious project. Westcan Power Services designed this visually appealing project, incorporating Longi solar panels, Solis inverters, and Clenergy’s PVezRack mounting gear.
Geza Anderson, Lead Engineer of Clenergy, expressed pride in participating in this significant sustainable farming initiative, stating, “We are extremely proud to be part of this major sustainable farming project. We would like to extend our sincere appreciation to our project partners – Solis and Longi. Together, we have made significant progress towards a sustainable future.”
The net metering system, regulated by the Alberta Utilities Commission, operates under micro-generation legislation, allowing the solar installation to feed the grid and loads through a point of common coupling. This provides 100% of the annual energy requirement for the irrigation pumps located in the beautiful valley directly below, contributing to a greener energy grid.
“We could not be more thrilled to be able to bring this award-winning Australian solar mounting brand to North America. Our global distribution network supplies Clenergy products across Australia, The UK and now Canada,” said Richard Wilton, Products Manager of Guillevan Greentech.
The project showcases the potential of solar energy in revolutionising farming practices, offering a sustainable and cost-effective solution amidst rising energy costs. The farm stands as a symbol of hope within the community, inspiring neighbouring farmers to embrace renewable energy solutions and contribute to a greener future.
While serving as a testament to the transformative power of solar energy in agriculture, the solar installation also represents a significant milestone for Clenergy in expanding its reach in the Canadian renewable energy solutions sector.
SolarTerrace III-A is a pre-assembled kit designed to be installer-friendly, ensuring a seamless and hassle-free installation process. With its low ground clearance, the support legs can be installed either with a concrete ballast footing or with ground screws, which makes it suitable for most challenging soil conditions. Additionally, it is ideal for corrosive environments and comes with full earthing functionality. For more information about ST-III-A, please click here.
