37kW On-Grid Solar PV System
Perth City YHA, Perth, WA
The major load in the premises during summer is air-conditioning which coincides with the sunshine hours. After consultation with the management and assessing the roof space available, it was decided to install a 37kW Solar PV system which has the potential of generating about 120kWh (or units) per day. It was estimated that the solar power generation would offset approximately 30% of Perth City YHA´s annual electricity consumption with a simple payback period of 2,2 years.
