Featured installation: Waiheke High School

Energy Alternatives was pleased to have been selected as preferred installer of solar at Waiheke High School in 2023. The installed solar PV system has a total of 200 x 375W panels for a total of 75kWp which is powering a 100kW inverter in a grid-tied configuration.

We were pleased to provide our own sponsorship by increasing the original specifications from 68kWp with two separate inverters of 29.9kW and 20kW to 75kWp with a Huawei 100kW inverter so as to provide for cost effective future expansion of the system.

Upon researching the High Schools energy usage pattern, we also changed the specified design to install 60 panels on an east facing roof so as to address high morning load requirements. The sophisticate monitoring system indicates that this has been a successful modification to the original plan specified.

Testimonial from Rachael Wheeler, Waiheke High School:

Waiheke High School engaged Energy Alternatives to install a Solar System after a competitive tender evaluation involving a number of Solar companies. When we initially discussed the project with EA they recommended we conduct a Solar Study which recommended the optimum size our system should be. This allowed us to make an informed vendor decision as each party submitted a proposal based on the same system metrics. The Board approved the project due to the favourable financial, environmental benefits as well as the learning opportunities having a working Solar system in the school would provide. The system installed at the high school is a large system at 75kWp and 200 Solar panels. Energy Alternatives is a local Waiheke supplier which streamlined the installation process and also provides peace of mind should there be any issues where we need support. We are happy to recommend Dana and the team at Energy Alternatives and found them easy to deal with throughout the process and the contract pricing we signed was honoured. Thanks to all in the EA team for your support with this project which will be of benefit to our school for many years to come.
