“Cold storage centres have the perfect energy consumption profile for solar. The solar system will also insulate the roof to further help reduce total energy consumption.” – James Doyle Managing Director – Solar Bay
For state and national cold storage operations who are leasing a large number of locations, it’s difficult to justify investing millions into solar. Due to lease terms, durations and make-good clauses, a lot of operations can’t benefit from cheaper energy. Solar Bay works with landlords and tenants by funding and maintaining these large solar infrastructure projects over the long term.
Store solar energy during the day and use it for refrigeration at night.
Renewable generation and thermal storage are low-cost and are designed to last for at least 20 years with minimal maintenance
Peak load shedding or shifting on command avoids peak rate times
Thermal backup allows customers to maintain safe temperatures and preserve food quality during equipment failure or power outages, reducing food loss and business interruption
The grid benefits from this commercial solar Energy Storage solution by providing a “buffer” of on-demand, efficient, and environmentally friendly thermal energy storage at customer sites
As the solar panels are absorbing the energy that would otherwise be heating your building, you consume less electricity to keep your facility at the optimal operating temperature.
