Learn how one of the big players in the poultry industry increased its power reliability and savings on diesel.
- October 4, 2022
Valentine Chickens is a poultry farm in Shonga, Kwara State with a processing plant that slaughters up to 25,000 birds per day and a feed mill producing 64mt of feed per day and providing frozen chicken to various parts of the country. Rensource deployed a 120kWp solar PV in one of the sites at Valentine Chicken for the purpose of “proof of concept” with the intention to develop a 5.128MW Solar-Gas Hybrid.
The installation comprised 4 rows of roof-mounted 335W Canadian Solar PV panels, and 1 Huawei PV inverter (100kW rating) installed for a total of 120kWp together with a back-up diesel generator.
Our operations and maintenance team provides support on-site and remotely 24/7 to ensure operations run well. We gave our client access to a platform that helps them monitor their energy consumption and savings remotely to provide comfort. Our client’s diesel consumption on the site is reduced by approximately 30%. The solar PV plant will generate up to 160MWh of energy while saving up to 70 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year, improving air quality in Nigeria.
