Sisters of Saint Joseph - 89.9kW System

September 13, 2022

The Journey

"We were always contemplating going solar and in June of 2019 we started to look around for some solar options. We visited a site called Solar Quotes and were suggested to get 3 different quotes from 3 different solar installers - one of which was NRG.

We went with NRG because the personalisation and tailoring options that the solar consultant provided when he came for the onsite consultation was top notch. He came onsite and assessed the size of the building, the shading issues and said he would get back to us with a proposal after he has completed his assessment. We really felt listened to and he crated the exact system that we were looking for and that was perfect for our energy requirements.

Something that stood out to us about the service from NRG was the fact we were interested in battery storage and through that this would be a great addition to the solar system. Our consultant advised us that with this particular system and the power consumption that we use, the battery would not be an effective purchase and would essentially be a waste of money. This really showed the integrity of our consultant and NRG.

The actual installation process was over two weeks. The installers were incredibly professional, there were no issues, the installers cleaned up after themselves and left the worksite as they found it - neat and tidy."

The Savings

"The savings have been fantastic - since the installation at the beginning of August we have saved $22,000 in just 9 months!

The environmental impact has been massive. We have been able to reduce our carbon footprint by 48.6 tonnes. We are also on track with our return on investment payment. We are due to have our return on investment paid within 2 years."

The Equipment Installed

  • 290 x 310w Panels
  • 5 x Fronius Symo Inverters
290 Panels

The Experience

"One of the inverters in the extreme heat shut down. We called NRG and someone was out within the hour to fix the issue. That's the only problem we have had with the system. The service from Nick in tech support was easy and simple."
