Solar Car Park Shading

Following the successful installation of over 100kW of solar PV at 3 Yarra Valley Water sites throughout 2018 - our team was engaged to deliver a 324kW solar car park shading system at their headquarters in Mitcham, VIC.


Autonomous Energy solution

  • The project features 1,080 Jinko JKM300M-60 panels and 5 SMA CORE1 inverters. A custom inverter shed was built at the site.
  • The car park shade structure features Schletter mounting system and provides lighting for easy night access. The structure provides weather protection for 140 vehicles, with a 3.9m clearance at its lowest point. At the client's request the car park was resurfaced at the same time as the shading structure was erected, and the entire process managed by the Autonomous Energy team.
  • The system performance is monitored through SMA ennexOS Sunny portal.
  • There are 8 x Delta EV chargers (each 7.36kW) integrated into the car park structure. 
  • This project was awarded to Autonomous Energy following the successful multi-site installation of over 100kW of solar at each of their remote STP's - Upper Yarra, Healesville and Whittlesea. To read more about the initial Yarra Valley Water solar project, click here.
