Infant Jesus Parish, Morley

AICA Engineering and Regen Power worked together to provide this community organisation with a solar system to reduce their long-term operating costs. The following is adapted from their bulletin.

What are the costs?

Electricity costs were forecast to be

  • 2010/11 Forecast – $8,700
  • 2011/12 Forecast – $9,600
  • 2012/13 Forecast – $11,000
  • 2013/14 Forecast – $12,400

The recommended maximum system size to provide for daytime usage is 15kW. The prudent approach is to begin with a 10KW system and gauge the results.

  • Cost of 15kW System: $60,000
  • Cost of 10kW system: $40,000
  • Approximate Saving in Energy Costs: 40 – 50%

Who is the provider?

Regen Power, has also installed units in both the Whitfords and Willetton parishes, and these parishes are very happy with the results. AICA Engineering is partnering with Regen Power to conduct the actual installation of this system, which uses higher quality HanWha (German) ‘Q-Cell’ panels and inverters and is also guaranteed for 25 years.
