Dehn Africa was recently involved in an extensive project to provide rooftop solar power to one of South Africa’s largest poultry farms, Chubby Chick, in Potchefstroom. Chubby Chick provides fresh and frozen whole chickens to the local retail and wholesale markets. The company’s range of products and services in the renewable energy segment can be applied across the solar photovoltaic (PV), thermal solar, wind energy and hydro-generation areas. The company recommends that a lightning protection system (LPS) be included in a commercial solar installation from the actual design stage. Although a LPS can be retrofitted, it is better to have it form part of the design of the commercial PV installation from the very beginning of the process.
