  3. Evolution Stone Saves With Solar

Completed in April 2018, the solar installation at Evolution Stone, now provides 70% of their total energy requirements.

Switching to solar, provides a number of benefits for the Dundowran business, with initial savings of approx $15,000/year. As electricity prices continue to increase, these savings will too. Like many businesses and home owners, this protection from future tariff increases, is a major advantage.

3 Phase Solar Installation – Without The Guesswork

Particularly for commercial premises using 3 phase power, planning and monitoring the solar installation is vital to maximise savings.

Using the Enphase Envoy system, GCR Electrical has equipped Evolution Stone with clear tracking to verify that the power generated on each phase, is being used most effectively.

The result of this installation for Evolution Stone, is they can expect sustained savings for a long period of time, with flexibility to make adjustments to, or expand their system if energy usage requirements change.
