Bupa Traralgon is located on the north east side of the regional city of Traralgon, which is in Victoria’s East Latrobe Valley. The facility is located in a quiet area and is surrounded by green fields and private homes.

In harmony with this peaceful setting are multiple solar arrays that were installed for Bupa Aged Care by Energy Matters. These solar power systems will silently generate clean power courtesy of the sun for decades.

This Energy Matters project involved installation of 1,150 REC and Trina Solar modules across three separate arrays. The panels were fitted to SunLock mounting systems; designed and manufactured right here in Australia.

The solar panels transmit the clean electricity they generate to 12 Fronius Symo 20kW (light) solar inverters that convert it from DC to AC and supply the facility with power. Bupa Traralgon maintains a grid connection, ensuring continual power supply.

With a combined capacity of 299kW, this significant renewable energy project is expected to generate 378.51 megawatt-hours of electricity and avoid 442,857 kg of carbon emissions each year.

As well as the substantial positive environmental impact, the installation will save Bupa Aged Care around $69,646 annually on electricity costs.

Bupa Aged Care’s solar power rollout in Australia was recognised in the Australian Business Awards 2015, with the organisation being named as the ABA100 Winner in the Sustainability category.
