Revolutionizing Dairy Farming with Solar Power: Blomfontein’s Success Story.

Blomfontein Dairy Farm Goes Solar with an Expert Team!

At the Blomfontein (yes, it’s spelled that way) Dairy Farm, located between Mossel Bay and George, the sun is now their secret weapon against high electricity costs and load shedding. Our dedicated commercial team made this solar transformation possible, and here’s the inside scoop on the magic:

Smart Design: We installed a 113.5 kWp solar system, carefully crafted with solar panel arrays – 61.8 kWp on the roof and 51.7 kWp ground-mounted.

Powerful Equipment: AC/DC Coupled with 3 x Fronius Eco 27kVA grid-tie inverters , 6 x 15kVA Victron Energy Quatro inverters/chargers, 2 x Victron 450/200 MPPT’s, and 1 x Freedom won LiFePO4 100/80 battery in place, the energy conversion is seamless.

Future-Ready: Blomfontein Dairy is already planning a 2nd Freedom Won LiFePO4 100/80 battery for 2024. A testament to their commitment to sustainability!

Savings in sight: Blomfontein’s Eskom bills have shrunk, and diesel costs plummeted. It’s a win-win for both their bottom line and the environment.

Measuring Impact: We’re eagerly waiting for a comprehensive report from the farm, coming in 3-4 months. This data will help us determine the breakeven point for the solar system’s capital cost.

This system is projecting a substantial reduction of 43.92 tons of CO2 emissions annually.

Team Effort: Our skilled team, driven by a passion for clean energy, made it all possible. Together with Blomfontein Dairy Farm, we’re paving the way for a cleaner, more cost-efficient future. Join us on this incredible journey!
