Aqua Jetty Solar PV System
Scope of Works
A state-of-the-art Photovoltaic (solar power) installation project is underway at the Aqua Jetty. The roof-mounted 340kW system, made up of 988 290W modules (panels), will produce an estimated 427.31 MWh per year of energy savings, which is equivalent to the annual electrical demand of over 53 houses. The installation will also offset 354 tons of carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere every year. It is forecast that 99.8% of the energy produced by the PV system will be consumed by the Aqua Jetty facility. Any unused or excess PV produced will be fed back in to WA’s electricity grid.
The City of Rockingham is proud to be launching such an iconic solar power system as part of its Strategic Community Plan, as well as being a great opportunity for the City to contribute to the community effort to reduce carbon emissions. The solar installation is an important development to showcase the economic and environmental benefits of wiser energy choices.
Aqua Jetty, 87 Warnbro Sound Ave, Warnbro.
The City of Rockingham will now fund 100% of the project over a payback period of six years. Initial grant funding applications were rejected.
The project is currently in the design phase and scheduled to begin at the end of 2017.
