Solar panels provided in bushfire relief effort

Communities affected by the bushfires earlier in 2020 will receive solar panels as part of their rebuilding process.

The solar panels will be supplied as part of an agreement between Risen Energy and prefabricated solar technology company 5B.

The initiative will see solar and battery solutions deployed by 5B in various communities across Australia alongside the Resilient Energy Collective.

It will also increase awareness of the benefits of green energy systems in Australia.

“5B’s mission of delivering world-class technology to ensure clean energy is affordable and accessible ties in with Risen Energy’s vision of a green future,” said Eric Lee, General Manager of Risen Energy (Australia).

Rhett Evans, Chief Technology Officer at 5B, said, “Risen has been a great partner on the bushfire relief project. They were able to respond rapidly and decisively with local stock and local support. Risen’s product range and build quality is a great match to our prefabricated array systems and they have a committed and growing presence in the Australian market.”

Risen’s Jaeger plus series were launched in the Australian market in 2019 and are a range of panels featuring nine bus bars, 158.75 mm wafers, half cut cells. These 400 W high efficiency panels offer high output, which ensures the MAVERICK system is power intensive, and can offer multiple end user solutions to communities affected by bushfire or floods.
