Congratulations to the winners in the 2020 Solar Design and Installation Awards. Read on to find out more about the winners and finalists in the following categories:
Winners - Matthew Linney and Jarrod Shepherd
Working with Autonomous Energy, Matthew and Jarrod designed and installed a ground-mount solar system on a building in the Sydney CBD that is designed to allow for plant growth throughout the array and underneath the panels. The system is a striking demonstration of how solar technology can be fully integrated into green spaces where both systems can function in harmony, and even in a mutually beneficial relationship.
Winners - Luke Butterworth, Marton Treuer, Alvin Lee, Tim Shield, Cameron Evans and Matthias Huchel
Working with Epho, Luke, Marton, Alvin, Tim, Cameron and Matthias designed and installed a 1.7 MW rooftop solar installation using Epho's Bright Thinkers Power Station (BTPS) technology, which allows the energy generated by the system to be consumed on site or traded on the National Electricity Market. The use of the BTPS technology allowed the installation to be twice as big as it would have traditionally been to off-set the on-site daytime power needs of the client.
Please note, Solar Design and Installation Awards were not awarded in the following categories this year as the judges deemed that the entries weren't of a sufficient standard:
