Autonomous Energy was engaged by German Solar Mounting equipment manufacturer Schletter to design and construct a 45kWp Solar Car Park Shading system at Transgrid’s Sydney West Substation in Eastern Creek, Sydney. Schletter chose to partner with Autonomous Energy for the engineering and construction of this solar power system after our successful installation of a much larger solar car park at Sydney Markets.

 Autonomous Energy solution

  • This Solar Car Park system is based on Schletter’s Park@Sol modular Solar Carport technology - technology that provides solar power generation, shading and ful waterproof amenity.
  • At the same time, this system makes parking very easy as the structure radiates from the centre and there are no poles to navigate around while driving. 
  • The 45kWp Solar PV array consists of 504 First Solar FS-390 thin film modules, manufactured in the USA. These First Solar modules are entirely encapsulated in glass and extremely fragile. Special care was taken by Autonomous Energy’s in house solar installation team to ensure that no modules were damaged in the process.
  • Autonomous Energy’s in house solar engineering and project management team coordinated every step of the project ensuring that the installation process went smoothly at all times.
  • This project was delivered to specification and on time within a very tight schedule even despite work being interrupted by rain. 

What Schletter says

We chose to work with Autonomous Energy as they have extensive expertise in solar panel installation in large-scale commercial spaces. 

In the last five years we have worked on numerous solar car park projects with the professional team at Autonomous Energy, who look after the customer from start to finish. With Autonomous Energy the customer is always front-of-mind, which we like because when we are the customer we receive the same professional treatment. Autonomous Energy are always leading their competitors with service, the use of best technologies and reliable hardware. They also have an excellent knowledge and love of the industry and product.
