Edenhope Depot Solar Project

Working towards greater environmental sustainability and reducing costs West Wimmera Shire has invested in a clean renewable energy source for the Edenhope Depot.

Council was successful in obtaining funding through the Victorian Climate Change Grant 2015 to install solar panels and a power generation tracker.

A solar system was installed and went live March 2017 at the main shed of the Edenhope Depot, Coleraine Edenhope Road, Edenhope.

System Components:
A Grid-Connect PV system
SMA Inverter25kw
Panel Capacity 25
SMA Energy Meter1
SMA Home Manager1
