Oaklands General Store

Case Study


Oaklands General Store is an Australian owned business. As a local business, they understand the importance of operating efficiently and reducing their impact on the environment. This has led to the installation of a commercial solar system to save on energy and operating costs thus benefiting Oaklands General Store, and the customers they serve. Commercial solar is an affordable energy option that creates a sustainable future.

Given the ever increasing cost of power, Oaklands General Store called on Solar Link Australia’s expertise to provide a power saving Solar Power Solution. Oaklands General Store elected to install 80 Solar PV Modules for 20kW solar system. The panels have a positive tolerance providing reliable output and a guaranteed tolerance of +3%. They also have high module efficiency of up to 15.22%. Moreover, they are certified to withstand 2400 Pa of wind and snow loads of up to 5400P as well as withstand a direct hail hit due to its tempered glass cover that is tested to TUV Standards (25mm diameter ice ball at 23.0m/s), keeping users worry-free at times of harsh weather.
