SolShare Shared Solar Case Study

LPE - Shared Solar for Apartments

Speaker 1 (00:12): Damien Glanville, LPE CEO

This is the first system of its type, where you're using one solar system across multiple customers.

In an environment like this, where they have one shared roof, there's arguments over who can access the roof. 

The shared solar system enables both bottom and top floor access to solar energy. 

Instead of having 25 inverters hanging on a wall, you've got one inverter and one distribution centre.

The real key is that this solar system will divert solar electricity to the customers in real time. So if one neighbor is demanding more solar electricity, they'll get more. So it's not wasted.

The financial benefits are very simple. The customers get access to solar electricity cheaper than what they would purchase electricity from the grid.

Our goal is to create sustainable communities. And we do that by funding, the capital requirement to actually put the solar system on.

We recover our costs through the sale of solar, electricity, to the customers.

With LPE. it was a win-win situation because there was no capital costs involved for the owners. And everybody is now going to get a reduction on their power bill. It's just a no brainer - going green, and we're helping the environment. 

Speaker 3 (01:25): Darren Tanti, LPE Electrician

Buildings like this, they're just not suitable for the traditional solar model. Where this allows us to install one central array on a shared rooftop. So it's just unlocked so many sites that wouldn't be able to receive the benefit of solar. It's a world first Australian owned and made concept.  From the Solshare unit, it feeds up to 15 metering points. The panels and the inverter is exactly like a traditional solar system. It's cost-effective and a lot quicker for installation.

Zen, Zero Emissions Noosa, is a community group started in 2016. Tourism Noosa joined with Noosa council and the community, trying to achieve zero net emissions by 2026. 

LPE being able to provide a service, individual for resorts, especially one that doesn't cost upfront, it's right there. Our favorite saying is “Solar. It's a no brainer.”
