1,366,380 Solar Panels, 102 Megawatts of Power
Enough To Power 33,000 Homes For A Year
The statistics are amazing, the scale is huge. AGL have just completed their biggest ever solar project at Nyngan in western New South Wales.
The last panel was installed in April 2015 and a ceremony to mark the event was attended by the CEOs of AGL and First Solar and ministers from the NSW state government – but not the federal government.
By the end of July the plant is expected to be fully connected and producing at full capacity. The more than 1.36 million panels cover 240 hectares and will provide enough energy to power 33,000 homes for an entire year.
Despite the federal government’s attack on the solar power industry, the installation of panels continues all across the country. Australians love solar power and will not be deterred from accessing this abundant, clean and cost effective source of energy.

Traditional exit lights with fluorescent tubes require a lot of maintenance to ensure they will operate correctly in an emergency.
With the new range of LED exit lights now available it’s usually cheaper to replace a faulty older exit light than it is to repair it.
LED exit lights have many advantages over the older style lights. They require much less maintenance, are cheaper to purchase, have more reliable batteries and chargers and use much less power.
Power consumption is an important consideration as many exit lights are required to run 24 hours a day. There are big savings to be made on running costs alone. The cost savings from lower maintenance requirements are on-going for the life of the fitting, which is considerably longer than for a fluorescent style exit light.
Each new lights come with a range of “running man” style graphics all in the one box. There is no need to purchase a specific left or right arrow diffuser for each location. The one fitting can be adapted to suit all situations.
If your commercial property has exit lights they are required to be checked every six months, with a log book on site to record the testing date and any repairs carried out.

Have you ever had a nasty shock when they received your power bill?
Maybe your first reaction was “How could it be so high? Surely there must be some mistake!”
There are unusual situations that could lead to a high power bill, however 99% of high power bills are due to high power usage.
We’ve done many investigations for clients who have received an unusually high power bill. Sometimes we find there has been an error with the meter reading.
Occasionally we’ve found instances where one person has been paying for someone else’s power. These are rare occasions, and always occur in multi- tenancy buildings.
The most common thing that catches people out is excessive use of electric heaters.
Most people underestimate the amount they run their heaters, and they aren’t aware of the running costs.
We have seen clients with quarterly power bills of more than $2,000 simply because they didn’t understand the cost of running their appliances.
It’s easy for costs to escalate quickly if you don’t know the best ways to manage your power use.
Very soon, Mance Electrical will be releasing a free guide to help you identify how much power your various appliances are using, so you can manage your power consumption to get the lowest possible power bill.
