Solarmax has supplied grid-connected solar inverters to Fracht Australia, a global freight forwarding company through its installation partner, Bollson Energy.

SolarMax delivered four 15kW 15MT2 and one 10kW 10MT2 grid connected inverters through Bollson Energy to Fracht Australia’s Banksmeadow warehouse in New South Wales for a 70kW rooftop solar PV system.

The solar PV system will support the company’s warehousing operations by generating close to 100MWh of solar power annually. Expected to save Fracht Australia up to $17,000 a year, the solar power system will reduce the company’s reliance on electricity from the grid. The grid-connected system is expected to reduce Fracht Australia’s carbon emissions by 106 tonnes every year and deliver an internal rate of return (IRR) of 27 percent per annum.

Keith Smith, Chief Financial Officer of Fracht Australia explains that Fracht had made a conscious decision to embed sustainability in its company philosophy. Solar power helps the company reduce carbon footprint with its investment in a quality solar PV system featuring Swiss quality inverters supplied by SolarMax contributing towards this objective.

Turning to solar energy to help its growing requirement for electricity and to meet its future energy needs, Fracht Australia expects to meet up to 60 percent of its energy requirements with the solar PV installation.

Gavin Merchant, Key Account Manager for SolarMax Australia explains that Fracht Australia is a good example of businesses who have taken a greater interest in minimising their carbon footprint through the use of solar energy. He adds Bollson Energy has done a wonderful job in helping companies such as Fracht Australia understand why it is important to invest in quality inverters as they offer a higher level of operational efficiency for any installation.

Key features of SolarMax’s MT series solar inverters include simple installation, reliability and long-term durability; maximum efficiency of up to 98 percent; suitable for both indoor and outdoor installations; compliance with safety requirements stated in AS/NZS 5033:2012 standards (IEC 62109-1/-2) as well as the AS 4777.2 and AS 4777.3 standards; accredited by the Clean Energy Council (CEC); and five-year standard warranty extendable up to 25 years.
