“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 flips this by working with landlords and tenants towards mutually beneficial outcomes.
Store solar energy during the day and use it for refrigeration at night.
Renewable generation with thermal storage is low-cost and 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.
The solar panels are absorbing light that would otherwise be heating your building, this means you actually consume less electricity to keep your facility cool.
