One of the many sites across Australia where Bupa Aged Care has installed solar is at its Sutherland facility in New South Wales.

Situated in the heart of the Sutherland Shire, the new care home features extensive lawns with lovingly maintained flower gardens, planter boxes and wonderful courtyard vistas.

With solar power systems now added to the premises, the site is even greener.

Our recent project for Bupa at Sutherland features two systems – one using REC solar panels and another featuring Yingli Solar modules. Both sets of panels were installed on Australian made and designed SunLock mounting systems; developed specifically for Australia’s demanding conditions.

The 50.18kW REC solar power system also features two Fronius Symo inverters, while the 89.5kW Yingli Solar based array routes its power to three ABB Trio 27.6kW inverters. Both sets of inverters efficiently convert the solar electricity to AC current for use by the facility.

Combined, the 551 panels represent nearly 140 kW of solar capacity and the systems have an estimated annual outputĀ  of 203.6 MWh of clean electricity . These PV arrays will together offset approximately 178,202 kg of CO2 emissions and save Bupa Aged Care approximately $35,197 each year on power bills.

As well as caring for people for over 60 years, Bupa also cares for the environment. The Sutherland site is part of a massive solar rollout by Bupa Aged Care, which is also the nation’s largest distributed solar power project.
