Ecotech Energy is proud to be involved in leading developer H.Co’s latest project, Ascent Frankston, designing and installing a fully integrated Virtual Energy Network during the construction phase of the project.
The system will provide renewable energy to each of the 9 residential apartments, and ground floor commercial tenancy, along with the light and power to all common areas of the building.
In a bold move away from the construction norm, H.Co actively looked into ways to make their Ascent project truly sustainable and unique. After consultation, the team at Ecotech Energy designed and engineered a turn-key Virtual Energy Network. This method allows each individual apartment and commercial space to access the power generated by the solar energy system on a gate metered connection.
Ecotech Energy’s Managing Director, Craig Jones, stated “It’s amazing what we can do with solar energy these days. There’s so much opportunity within properties that were previously too complex to install solar on. And best of all, the end result at Ascent is incredible, for both the developer and people living and working in this fantastic space.”
The 35.52kW solar and 39kWh Tesla battery system will produce enough energy to power the entire complex, and best of all, H.Co have retained the rights to the roof space and solar energy system. This means that each tenancy will have access to purchase cheap sustainable power directly from the solar system, while generating additional ongoing revenue for H.Co throughout the life of the energy system. It’s a win-win!
