WAAE performed an in depth Energy Assessment for Stella Bella at their request. This enable us to provide Stella Bella with a site specific Viability Report outlining how they could reduce the energy consumption costs for their business. It was recommended that an 85 kW solar energy system was the best solution for the site as Stella Bella wanted to both reduce its electricity consumption and try to reduce its ongoing increasing costs from its retailer.
The 85kW solar energy system was built on the winery building in Karridale, WA. The system will reduce the electricity consumption from the grid by 40% and reduce their electricity costs by 38%. This will also give Stella Bella leverage in determining their peak power price in the future.
