Glengarry Pharmacy

Glengarry Pharmacy owner Sam Frosh became interested in the excellent returns on investment offered by commercial solar PV after reading some articles on the subject online.  Sam had done a lot of research and was therefore very specific about his requirements in terms of panel placement, in order to optimise the performance of the system at various times throughout the day.

Case Study - Glengarry Pharmacy
Project Overview
Duncraig, Perth, WA
November 2013
System Size: 
Roof Fixing Method: 
Flush mounted 15 degree pitch
Annual Energy Production: 
12.6 MWh approximately
Annual Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction: 
10.57 Tonnes CO2 e (CO2 equivalent)

The final design included splitting the system across the East and West orientated roof. This allowed for a steady solar PV production throughout the day, which fits well with the consumption pattern. 

Along with presenting a design that worked for the client, some of the other reasons that Solargain were chosen as the preferred supplier included the provision of panel and inverter brands that are reputable and easily researched, and a comprehensive proposal that addressed all the needs of the client in a manner that was easy to understand. 

The solar PV system comprises 35 x 250W ReneSola panels and 1 x SMA 10000TL Sunny Tri Power inverter. It is split across and flush mounted to the East/West orientated roof with 3.75kW on the East orientated roof and 5kW on the West orientated roof.
