Meriton Suites has undergone tremendous growth in its collection of luxury apartment-style hotel accommodation. With 18 establishments and a remarkable total of 4,644 suites, the Meriton became Australia’s largest owner of hotel rooms and amongst one of the country’s largest hotel operators. After Space Solar Service discussed the beneficial factors of having solar, the Meriton Mascot trusted Space Solar Service to conduct this massive 99kW project in February 2017. Adding a solar system to this first class resort will massively offset the grid import demand in the common area. With plenty of high-tech door slides, lighting, pool pumps, water fountains, elevators and more we can say see the demand for power is high.
The 99kW solar system will generate 155MWh of solar electricity per year. An estimated 95% of produced power will be consumed on-site. This impressive sustainable inclusion works towards Meriton’s ambitious sustainability goals.
Space Solar designed installed and commissioned the solar power system for the Serviced Apartment Building. From visibility, challenges with shading to weather-permitting schedules, Space Solar engineered and executed the project to fit the unique requirements of the structure.
The solar panel system, which spans 456.67m², is made up of 330 x BenQ panels and four German-quality SMA inverters.
