Their large site on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria consumes a significant amount of energy and as a farming business, Hussey & Co are particularly passionate about supporting sustainability
and renewable energy initiatives.
To help manage Hussey & Co’s large energy consumption and fulfill their passion for renewables, Cherry Energy Solutions started with a roof mounted 99.64kW system which immediately reduced Hussey & Co’s energy expenditure by more than $13,000 per annum. Hussey & Co were extremely positive about the quality of sales support, workmanship and customer service and the success of this first project led to stage 2, a 505kW ground mounted system to offset 100% of Hussey & Co’s peak daytime energy use.
The 505.44kW system will be made up of 1,872 Q CELL panels and 20 Fronius inverters and will be saving Hussey & Co more than $86,000 per annum. Both systems are funded by an Environmental Upgrade Agreement (EUA) over a 10-year period, giving the business access to a excellent rates and positive cash flow.
The new solar systems will reduce Hussey & Co’s environmental footprint by more than 945 tonnes CO2 per annum, for the next 25 years.
