As a preferred supplier for commercial solar and due to our friendly and consultative approach, Cherry Energy Solutions were selected to complete the project. Milparinka were also supported by Powershop’s Community Energy Program and received $10,000 towards the cost of the project.


Milparinka were interested in getting the largest solar system possible, while still being aesthetically pleasing. To achieve this, Cherry designed a 22.88kW solar system with tilted the panels on the north side of the building.
