Project wins 2016 Solar Installation and Design Award in Grid-Connect 15 kW - 100 kW category | Energy Action witnessing growing interest in solar PV in commercial building sector | Solar PV now represents a compelling solution to lower costs and improve energy efficiency
Australia’s leading energy management technology and services company Energy Action Limited (ASX:EAX) is pleased to announce that the Company has been recognised with an award from the Clean Energy Council for a solar photovoltaic (PV) project that it recently delivered at a multi-storey commercial building in Melbourne’s Collins Square precinct.
The project was awarded the Clean Energy Council’s 2016 Solar Design and Installation Award in the Grid-Connect 15 kW - 100 kW category. The award was presented at the ATRAA Dinner on Monday, held in conjunction with the All-Energy Exhibition and Conference which concluded yesterday.
Energy Action’s project, a 99.9 kW solar PV installation at an 18 storey high rise building, was selected as the winner by an independent panel of solar experts from what was described as a “highly competitive group of finalists” by the Clean Energy Council’s Accreditation Manager Sandy Atkins.
Commenting on the award, Energy Action’s CEO Scott Wooldridge said, “It is a great honour to be judged the “best of the best”” amongst our peers for the solar PV project we delivered at Collins Square. I thank the building trust managed by CIMB Trust Capital and the Collins Square Management team for the support and vision needed to drive this project. I also thank the Energy Action team that was involved in this project for their hard work on the implementation that has made this award possible.”
“Energy Action is committed to staying at the forefront of innovation in the energy sector, and this award is also a reflection of our ongoing commitment to delivering superior outcomes for our clients.”
Mr Wooldridge added that Energy Action is currently witnessing significant growth in the interest in solar PV as an energy cost saving and supply solution, particularly in the commercial building sector, and with an increasing number of building owners and tenants looking to both reduce electricity costs and improve their NABERS ratings.
“This project is a great example of the significant energy cost savings and sustainability improvements that may now be achieved in the commercial building sector through the use of solar PV, even in a multi-storey context.”
“I strongly encourage both building owners and tenants alike to get in touch with us to see how they might achieve similar results. With far shorter pay back periods and numerous funding options now available, there is a compelling case to act.”
