Project Description

The Salvation Army

Location – 211 Watton Street, Werribee VIC 3030


The Salvation Army is a global charity that brings salvation to the poor, destitute and hungry by meeting both their “physical and spiritual needs”. It is present in 126 countries, running charity shops, operating shelters for the homeless, and providing disaster relief and humanitarian aid to developing countries.

Given the ever increasing cost of power, the Salvation Army called on Solar Link Australia’s expertise to provide a power saving Solar Power Solution. The Salvation Army elected to install 80 x 250W Solar PV Panels (20Kw PV System) Power-One (ABB) Inverters (Made in Italy). The panels have a positive tolerance providing reliable output and a guaranteed tolerance of +3%. They also have high module efficiency of up to 15.22%. Moreover, they are certified to withstand 2400 Pa of wind and snow loads of up to 5400P as well as withstand a direct hail hit due to its tempered glass cover that is tested to TUV Standards (25mm diameter ice ball at 23.0m/s), keeping users worry-free at times of harsh weather. Solar Link Australia is proud to supply & install the industry’s leading brands to one of Australia’s leading charities.
