DFO Cairns

1.3MW System

  • Cairns City, QLD
  • 3250 x Canadian Solar 400kW
  • 37 x Fronius ECO

The Sentinel owned and managed DFO shopping centre in Cairns has very high energy consumption due to consistently high ambient temperatures.

The 1,300kW system was designed to off-set almost all of the peak day time energy consumption of the centre. GEM Energy were awarded the project after a competitive tender process. 1,300kW of solar panels were installed in a 5 month period.

High ambient temperature and stormy conditions experienced in far North QLD meant that the program had to be executed well to meet budget and time frames.

GEM Energy achieved practical completion on this installation in 5 months and have been able to reduce energy consumption across the site by over 30%
