Case Study: North Sails Solar System in Mona Vale

By: | Tags: , , , , | Comments: 0

“I was recently approached by a solar company salesman who targeted our building being flat roofed via Google earth.  The salesman’s solar concept presentation made commercial and ecological sense to me so I asked for more information.  My enquiries were passed down the line and I was not comfortable with the advice. This prompted me to make my own enquiries which lead me to make contact with Epho where Dr Oliver Hartley satisfied all my questions with a professional presentation that include an accurate proposal leaving me confident with the forecasts and price, we went ahead. The installation was very smooth and the system is running perfectly. No doubt, we made the right decision to go with ePho and can highly recommend them.”

North Sails has been making sails in Mona Vale for over 30 years, and the company has a history since 1957. They pride themselves on using high tech materials and production methods for maximum performance.

They were quick to see the benefits of solar, and will be saving around 30% of their overall power costs with this 10kW system.

The installation happened on one day, with the metering and monitoring happening on the following day. This was made possible by excellent project planning – all materials being onsite and ready to go. The roof was 3 storeys high, so materials handling posed some challenges.
