60kW industrial solar system power purchase agreement (PPA) for Dynachem, Western Cape
The Dynachem industrial solar system uses 180 Canadian Solar 330 watt poly crystalline modules and 1 50kW Inverter to deliver 59.4 kW of direct current (DC) electricity – around 36% of the plant’s energy needs. Reducing the plant’s entire load on the grid will mean that the it will experience demand savings as well as reductions in its costs for energy per month. With the system lasting 20 years, the chemical manufacturer is likely to benefit substantially from the reduced energy costs.
The system belongs to SOLA Future Energy, with a power purchase agreement (PPA) in place, which will enable the Dynachem, manufacturing plant to buy clean energy back at a fixed-rate tariff. The arrangement will provide the plant with clean energy over the next 20 years, shielding the industrial plant of the variability of Eskom tariff increases.
