Jack’s Distribution Center, Fiji – Solar Energy for Warehousing & Distribution
One of Jack’s Group of Companies largest distribution centers in now powered by Fiji’s most abundant resource, the sun! With a 25-year expected lifespan, the system will have an incredibly positive impact and is expected to pay for itself in about 5 years. That means the company will not only protect itself against the inflationary rise in electricity rates, but they will also enjoy free clean electricity after the short payback period.
What makes this large commercial project leading edge is the fact that it utilizes the first-ever intelligent inverter system installed in Fiji. The solar PV system is powered by world-class modern inverters and power optimizers to maximize energy production and reduce overall lifetime costs.
- System Type: Commercial Rooftop Solar PV Grid Connected
- Capacity: 59 kWp
- Production Estimate: 86,376 kWh/year
- Inverters: 1 no. x SolarEdge 27.6kW + 1 no. x SolarEdge 17.0kW
- Panels: Jinko 330W polycrystalline solar panels x 180 nos.
“Installing solar seemed like the right thing to do for our employees, customers, and nation, not to mention the planet! Consumers have a lot of choices and being a socially and environmentally responsible company is one of Jack’s competitive differentiators. Tourists and locals will hopefully notice and appreciate our efforts to invest in clean energy production.” Mr. Ronald Nair, Group Commercial Manager, Jack’s Group of Companies
Intelligent Inverter Technology to Eliminate Limitations in Traditional Inverter Systems
What makes this large commercial project a leading-edge is the fact that it utilizes the first-ever intelligent SolarEdge inverter system installed in Fiji. The solar PV system is powered by world-class modern SolarEdge inverters and power optimizers. The inverters are the “brain” of the system and manage production. Therefore, the inverter selection is critical for the long-term financial performance of a PV system, as it can maximize energy production and reduce lifetime costs.
