The Australian branch of the discount supermarket chain, Aldi has installed a massive 1-megawatt array on their distribution center in Brendale, Queensland. The system was installed by an Australian commercial solar specialist, Epho as reported by One Step Off The Grid.
The Brendale project is the largest so far to be installed by the German-owned supermarket chain in Australia. The 1-megawatt solar array is expected to cover the daytime requirements of the Brendale distribution centre.
The solar array attributes are as follows:
- It’s made up of 3,400 panels
- It can generate 1,454 megawatt-hours every year
- The array is enough to power 270 Queensland homes.
With the pilot stores and the 1 MW Distribution Centre in QLD, one of Australia’s largest rooftop solar projects, ALDI is well placed to pursue a renewable energy powered revolution in the retail industry across Australia.
