Solar power is arguably the best-known form of renewable energy, mining uses vast amounts of power and more often than not, mining activity is situated in very remote locations. Utilising Australia’s fantastic climate makes a compelling case for both the mining and solar power industries to come closer together as commercial bedfellows.
What can mining operations gain from solar? – Understand why solar power and sometimes with a hybrid system can be a great, low cost and compelling solution.
The cost of transporting diesel and gas can be enormous, due to vast distances. This transport cost does not add any value, and importantly, by using solar power, this cost can now be significantly reduced.
Potential transport hazards are also minimised such as spills, transport delays and storage costs
Of course, Mines require dependable power supplies. Great advances in solar power generation and storage technology have become far more cost effective and allow renewable energy solutions, such as solar power as a permanent, green and eco-friendly solution to traditional carbon fuel sources.
For off-grid mining operations, solar is an excellent choice as a reliable power source that can run sustainably in isolation.
