Harry Pruyn Case Study

After Harry Pruyn took over his mother’s dairy farm business in Agnes, Victoria, he noticed the farm consumed a huge amount of energy. Housing over 40 dairy cows, the farm generated extremely high energy bills, impacting the dairy farm’s cash flow. When Harry approached GEE Energy at the end of August 2019, his average monthly bill was $2796 – resulting in an annual bill of $33,559. GEE Energy designed a tailored solution which reduced the farm’s high energy costs whilst helping the environment.

The Solution

After GEE Energy’s CEC designers conducted a thorough assessment of the dairy farm’s current situation (including a site inspection) GEE Energy proposed a 65kW system for the dairy farm.

The 65kW installation consisted of Canadian Solar Panels and 3 Fronius Symo 20 Inverters. GEE Energy regularly uses Canadian Solar Panels due to their power and reliability. Their split cell technology means their modules have a lower micro-crack risk than other panels, and they have exceptional performance in the shade. The Canadian Solar Panels are also covered by a 25-year warranty, making them an ideal choice for a family-owned dairy farm. The Canadian Solar Panels were paired with Fronius Symo 20 Inverters, which is one of the most communicative inverters on the market. They offer a clear visualisation of the energy consumption on the meter interface, allowing Harry to keep on top of his solar panel’s system’s generation. Harry signed a lease agreement of 84 months- with NO upfront cost.

Results

After GEE Energy installed a 65kW solar PV system on Harry Pruyn’s family-owned dairy farm, Harry noticed an immediate decrease of around 70% on his energy bills. This is estimated to save Harry’s dairy farm’s around  $22,500 each year!
