Commercial solar

Photon Energy provides solar power, power storage and energy demand management solutions for large power users to off-set grid power, provide additional power and reduce power bills.

When we installed one of Australia’s largest rooftop solar power plants on Australia Post’s Sydney office building in 2013, we delivered a fully integrated power source for the building which helped the building achieve a higher NABERS rating and significant reduction in energy costs.

Our commercial solar power systems are fully designed, engineered, project managed and commissioned by our in-house professional engineers who have extensive Australian and International experience in large scale solar. Our proven experience in building and operating utility scale systems ensures our solutions are correctly dimensioned, designed and reliable.

Our systems are specifically engineered for the specific requirements of large production facilities, service centres, shopping malls, hospitals, hotels, housing developments, office building, processing plants and mining infrastructure whether they be on-grid or off-grid solar storage solutions. Our systems include SCADA, smart PLC and AS4777 compliant grid protection programmed and commissioned by our experienced programmers and technicians with full 24/7 control room support.

In addition, Photon Energy Australia delivers high-end solar O&M (Operations & Maintenance) solutions for its customers.

We are one of a few companies in Australia with large scale solar experience at a global scale. Our highly experienced team of engineers, programmers and technicians are also able to add further functionality to help improve your energy consumption and quality of your energy supply.

Our smart PLC and professional SCADA system enables us to ensure our systems are functioning correctly. Our SCADA will integrate into your existing power infrastructure and facility or building management system which is significant point of difference and value added compared to our competitors including:

Energy Efficiency

Use only the power you need by ensuring your equipment, lighting, cooling and heating is working efficiently are correctly commissioned and if necessary replaced for more efficient technologies including LED lighting as part of our complete service.

Demand Control

Our SCADA system enables further energy cost savings through efficiency improvements through Demand Control. By regulating chillers, HVAC, Lighting and other equipment to take maximum advantage of available solar power to further reduce costs.

Power Factor Correction

Our systems are configured to minimising reactive power generated by inductive loads ensuring power factor is as close as possible to 1 which ensures energy quality and reduces your energy bill.

Lightning and over voltage protection

Unlike many, Photon Energy takes protection seriously and includes protection from damage to the system or your facility caused by power surges or lightning strike
