Founded in the 1950’s the Geraldton Fisherman’s Co-operative (GFC) has evolved into the world’s largest rock lobster exporter and processor. Being completely owned by its members, the group retains full control over product quality. The fishermen work collectively to produce the best premium quality rock lobster in the world.
Geraldton Fisherman’s Co-operative were looking for a cost effective way to reduce their electricity bills as well as to reduce their CO2 emissions. After conducting an extensive selection process the co-operative chose Infinite Energy to engineer, procure, construct and commission an exporting 100kW solar PV system complete with a live grid and solar monitoring and data logging system for its Geraldton headquarters.
Infinite Energy was chosen due to our experience, expertise and competence in constructing appropriately engineered 100kW systems on the Western Power network. The SMA / REC system was chosen for its suitability, reliability and environmental impact with the REC panels boasting a market leading less than 12 month embodied energy payback period.
