Qponics: "Progress in upgrading the algae farm in Brisbane" June 2019
"The 24-kW solar panel array has been installed on the roof of the new shed, adjacent to the new algae pond, and the inverters plus multiple batteries to store the power have been installed inside the shed and is now functioning. This system was selected to ensure that the upgraded algae farm can operate 24 hours a day, accommodating peak power loads when several water pumps and the algal centrifuge switch on. The site is off-grid and the solar plus battery option was about 25% of the cost of extending the 3-phase power line to the farm from the nearest point 500m from the site."
Dr Graeme Barnett, Chief Executive Officer & Managing Director, Qponics Limited, 3 June 2019.
