Grantham, 100kms west of Brisbane CBD, has excellent year-round sunshine. Accordingly, Tamor Roses owners were looking to take advantage of this resource for their 1,500 sqm greenhouse, which uses reticulated hot water for heating.
The objective was to consider technologies which both displaced the high cost LPG fuel being used and to reduce greenhouses gas emissions. This was consistent with the permaculture ethos and environmental objectives of the business
The new solar driven heating system integrated 16 x GLX100 Greenland Systems modules into the existing instantaneous gas hot water units.
The collector field has been designed to provide 85C water, and is managed via monitoring and control technology including temperature sensors and variable speed pumps.
