Carlton & United Breweries
9.8MW Rooftop Solar PPA
Delivered with no upfront cost
Yatala is the 5th largest rooftop system in Aus.
Complex system design and engineering
Total of 13 connection points
The sites ranged in age from over 100 years old to brand new, this brought its own challenges from a structural and buildability point of view. Extensive structural engineering assessment needed to be conducted in order to understand where solar could be installed and which areas of the site were going to require maintenance over the 20 year period. This stemmed into countless safety in design reviews to ensure the CUB site teams were comfortable with how the system will be integrated into the site without any disruption both now and into the future.
The sites also contained many different connection points. This meant that we had to design and construct the system in order to match loads across the site which meant numerous inverter station set ups, connections to main switchboards and integrated grid protection across the site.
All of these challenges were overcome and resulted in a well balanced system offsetting different loads across the sites operations.
