William Adams

Williams Adams has over a 90 year association as a dealer for Caterpillar. They sell new and used equipment, parts, as well as short and long term equipment hire.


We had previously worked with William Adams back in 2018 to upgrade a number of their Victorian sites to LED lighting. In 2021, the company were looking to reduce their operating costs even further and approached us about installing solar on their Sunshine West branch.

The project

A 200kW system was chosen as it was the optimal size for their site, integrating well with the site’s electrical infrastructure and didn’t require any major modifications or upgrades.
400 panels were mounted with a mix of flush to roof and reverse tilt to maximise the solar generation. These were powered by three Sungrow 3 Phase Inverters. Skylight protection was required during the installation to ensure safe project delivery.


The system will contribute approximately 29% to the sites energy needs, which will result in a first year cost saving of $30,000 and nearly $900,000 over 25 years. A fantastic return on investment with a payback period of less than five years.
