Learning from business owners that lease: what’s stopping you from going solar?

Threadlet is a local company helping small to medium-sized businesses that lease get solar.

We want to help tenants specifically because we’ve noticed they’re locked out of the market.

We are looking for any advice from SME tenants about the challenges and barriers of getting solar.

We value feedback and would love to run our solution past business owners so that we can improve what we are doing.

We want to provide value for SME so that they are profitable and sustainable in the long term.

We want everyone to benefit from solar, whether they rent or own.

Super excited to connect and learn more about your experiences.

Another Solar Install Completed.

Frank from the Acrodyne QRC has successfully completed another commissioning sign-off on a solar installation for Melbourne Water, this one is located at McMahons Creek.

Our scope included–Limitorque MX actuators, Acrotorque gearbox’s, new stems, adapter plates, and stem protection covers.

The Limitorque MX series is a maintenance-free actuator perfectly suited to the remoteness of the application.

The TPC (Tamper-proof cover) provides protection from vandalism as well as allowing large clasp locks to be used to locally lock the controls. In addition, we have a sun-shield only which fits across the local display to protect from direct and damaging sunlight.

Acrodyne Solar Powered Actuators

Acrodyne was recently requested to come up with a solution to automate some very old Penstocks in the Upper Yarra Region for Melbourne Water, the challenges presented were no power and existing Penstocks were operated by Trewhella jacks.

Acrodyne conducted a full site survey, determined the exact requirement as well as collecting the required data to calculate torque and select the correct equipment.
A key consideration with the project was the need for power and a solar powered system was needed to be factored in to the solution.

The Solution

Limitorque Electric MX series actuators mounted to ACROGEAR bevel gearboxes with new spindles were selected to operate in a solar powered system that will automate the process and replaced the physically demanding Trewhella jack option.

Once installed Acrodyne will return to site and perform commissioning and once complete, the system will be able to be operated remotely at the Brooklyn facility approximately 130Km away.
