"Seeing the Light and the Power" - Solar PV Projects - A Case Study

Saint Mary Coptic Church, Calamvale, Brisbane, QLD


The community at Saint Mary Coptic Church in Calamvale, Brisbane, decided to reduce the carbon footprint associated with its energy consumption. Regenpower conducted an energy assessment and recommended the installation of a photovoltaic system to generate electricity to offset the cost of its electricity usage (approx. $10,000 per year) and to export excess energy to the grid.


A photovoltaic (PV) solar electric system was designed and installed on the roof of the church in September 2010. The system comprised 60 PV modules, 180W CEEG solar panels. A 3-phase CMS inverter rated 11kW was installed for optimal current output.

The system installation was carried out by Regen's installation partner, Acsel Pty Ltd, in 3 days. The PV system was commissioned and tested on 23rd September. The system was featured on Channel 10 News on Wednesday 10th October 2010.

The system is ideally suited to any complex requiring at least 10kW power as schools, community halls, shopping centres, large residential etc. Federal and State policies support the installations of PV systems. It is up to all of us to take advantage of these incentives, reduce our carbon emissions and feel good about what we are doing.
