Shingwedzi Bush Camp Solar PV Design

Grey Green was commissioned to do a detailed design for an off-grid Solar PV system to provide electricity to the Shingwedzi Cliffs Bush Camp. The camp comprised an entertainment and facilities area, as well as staff and guest accommodation. The design included 7.5kW of solar PV panels centralised on a ground mounted support structure with a 600Ah battery backup and 10kW inverter for AC power. Sophisticated power point trackers were included to optimise output. Furthermore, detailed specification with regards to energy efficient appliances and practices was also provided to ensure maximum effectiveness of the system.
