Solaron has installed both a rooftop and large ground mount array at the site. This feeds power to a
dedicated battery hut with 10 tonnes of batteries and a backup diesel generator. The system is fully
automatic and totally managed to maximise solar power with minimal generator use. As Solaron is
QBCC licenced we can build structures as required for any size project. In this case it included a
polymer frame for the ground mount array and a custom battery storage hut.
The site now uses zero grid power and rarely any diesel, so the clients are happily self-sufficient in
their beautiful location.
We had spent several years watching our power bills increase dramatically, as is the case for everyone.
We had also sought advice from solar suppliers about the possibility of going “off the grid”, but we were
never confident in their level of expertise and knowledge. And then we met Ron Flynn, from Solaron
Ron immediately impressed us with his knowledge and enthusiasm, and together we all took on a project to
lower our carbon footprint, and be done with those pesky utility bills. With perseverance, professionalism
and personal commitment, the entire Solaron team achieved this goal, and all within general parameters of
investment and time. The day we “pulled the plug” was a cause for celebration!
So a big and heartfelt thanks to Ron, in particular, who spent hours with suppliers, consultants,
tradespeople and, of course, us …….as we also had to be educated from the ground up on this new
We truly wish all of the Solaron team the best success in years to come.”
