Growling Frog Golf Course

Commercial Solar

As part of City of Whittlesea's sustainability target, Leeson Solar was successfully awareded this project to help the client reduce their carbon footprint and electricity costs.

  • 50KW System Size
  • Jinko 330W Solar Panels
  • Enphase IQ7+ Microinverters

This solar power system required a complex installation with high voltage issues on site and therefore had to find a suitable location for the grid protection relay. With multiple roof objects, panel layout was optimised to minimise the shading impact and roof/panel access for maintenance.

Solar amongst the green.

Until recently, the prevailing view assumed lorem ipsum was born as a nonsense text. “It's not Latin, though it looks like it, and it actually says nothing,” Before & After magazine answered a curious reader, “Its ‘words’ loosely approximate the frequency with which letters occur in English, which is why at a glance it looks pretty real.”

As Cicero would put it, “Um, not so fast.”

The placeholder text, beginning with the line “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit”, looks like Latin because in its youth, centuries ago, it was Latin.

Richard McClintock, a Latin scholar from Hampden-Sydney College, is credited with discovering the source behind the ubiquitous filler text. In seeing a sample of lorem ipsum, his interest was piqued by consectetur—a genuine, albeit rare, Latin word. Consulting a Latin dictionary led McClintock to a passage from De Finibus Bonorum et Malorum (“On the Extremes of Good and Evil”), a first-century B.C. text from the Roman philosopher Cicero.

In particular, the garbled words of lorem ipsum bear an unmistakable resemblance to sections 1.10.32–33 of Cicero's work, with the most notable passage excerpted below:

“Intricate placement of panels to avoid roof obstacle shading”

A 1914 English translation by Harris Rackham reads:

McClintock's eye for detail certainly helped narrow the whereabouts of lorem ipsum's origin, however, the “how and when” still remain something of a mystery, with competing theories and timelines.

Solar Panels

Leeson Solar designed, supplied and installed this system with Jinko 330W Panels on top of multiple roof platforms to achieve the desired system size outcome.

  • It's difficult to find examples of lorem ipsum in use before Letraset made it popular as a dummy text in the 1960s,
  • So far he hasn't relocated where he once saw the passage
  • Cicero in the 15th century supports the theory that the filler text has been used for centuries.
Inverter Modules

As requested by the client, Enphase IQ7+ Microinverters were used under each panel for this system to optimise efficiency and reduce impact by shading.
