200KW Canning Vale
Blackwoods is the largest operating unit of Wesfarmers Industrial and Safety, a division of the Wesfarmers group which is an ASX listed company and one of the largest employers in Australia. Recognised for its expertise and product range, Blackwoods has earned its place as Australia’s first choice for industrial and safety products and services.
Blackwoods supplies an extensive range of tools, safety, PPE, work wear, signage, workplace training and welding & gas needs including the best brands in power tools available to buy online for delivery Australia wide.
West Australian Alternative Energy designed, engineered and installed a 200kW solar system at Blackwoods in Canning Vale. We used our experience in commercial solar installations to help Blackwoods manage their escalating network electricity costs whilst designing and installing the system to comply with all current regulations including AS3000, AS4777 and AS5033.
The 200kw system is the biggest single solar installation in the Westfarmers group to date and will supply Blackwoods with a quarter of their site’s electricity needs. The installation features real time solar monitoring equipment so that Blackwoods can log in and monitor not only its solar PV generation, but also its grid electricity consumption and the electricity generation that is exported back to the grid.
