Winemaking Tasmania provides wine- and cidermaking, bottling, labelling
and storage facilities for its clients from across Tasmania. It is the cooling
facilities on site that require the most energy.
Developed and installed by Hobart renewable energy specialist I Want Energy,
the 100kW PV system is designed to generate 30 per cent of Winemaking
Tasmania’s power, not only reducing its electricity costs but cutting a
significant amount of carbon dioxide produced in the winemaking process.
I Want Energy made use of the Fronius start-up assistance. A Fronius technician
visited the site to validate the installation and ensure the project reached
its full potential.
“In the first month the system has saved us $3,500 in power costs and reduced
our carbon emissions by 8.5 tonnes, which is remarkable and promises
even greater savings.” Winemaking Tasmania’s Managing Director Julian Alcorso
I Want Energy completed the entire install within an impressive two weeks.
The Fronius Symo‘s in-built DC isolator helped saving installation time and
