We were recently lucky to be at the Latitude and Chillamurra Solar Farms at Boggabilla NSW (a stone’s throw over the Macintyre River from Goondiwindi) for an early morning shot.
It struck us just how far renewables technology has advanced in a pretty short space of time (and our own experience and understanding of what works and why).
When we built Chillamurra in 2017 we used 265-watt PV modules and string inverters. And 5 years later at the Latitude Solar Farm, we installed 460-watt PV modules, central inverters and reverse DC-coupled battery storage. In our next project, we’ll be installing 550-watt modules.
Given the sun has about 5 billion years to go (according to NASA), it’s hard to imagine what future renewables tech might look like.
