Overberg, Western Cape

Whole Farm Powered

This entire farm including offices, factory, workshop, pumps, and houses are run off the power of the sun. This farm has an existing generator which is tied into the Solar PV battery backup system as an additional backup.

The farm also had an existing grid tied solar PV system which was reutilized and wired into the large Hybrid solar PV battery backup system.

Due to the nature of their tariff structure, they also schedule the solar/battery use to avoid the peak tariff hours in the day. Battery backup ensures refrigeration is maintained and the production lines are uninterrupted.
