It wasn’t long however, until the unique nature of our distributed network of 200kW to 1,000kW solar farms - in probably one of the most solar-fertile locations on the planet - piqued the interest of overseas business. It was through this interest that Yates Electrical Services’ sister company Green Gold Energy – based in Adelaide – was born, specifically to facilitate and develop projects which utilised a combination of local and overseas investment. Since its inception, Green Gold Energy has now completed several 1,000kW large scale solar farms, with approximately another fifteen sites currently in various stages of development.
Yet, the true advantage of Green Gold Energy comes from the existing relationships and knowledge the directors bring to the table, resulting in a strong investment portfolio enabling much larger scale projects, accompanied by an unparalleled understanding of the South Australian energy market. This model allows for considerable investment in our rural communities - boosting employment and assisting growth in our local economies while supporting South Australia’s energy grid to deliver seamless results.
Last week, through the cooperative relationship forged between Chint Electric and Green Gold Energy, the Riverland’s newest 1MW solar farm on Jury Road in Monash went live. Consisting of 4,000 solar modules and 20 inverters on ground mounted framework, the site is capable of outputting approximately 6.5MWh of electricity daily in ideal conditions.
