We recently installed a 51kW solar project at our head office in Hallam with the goal of having 75% of the office’s energy requirements generated onsite, saving 90,000kg of carbon emissions per annum and an approximately $200,000 saving on our power bills over the next 10 years.
In addition to solar, we have also switched to LED lighting across the business – an investment that will save a further 60,000 kg of CO2 per annum and approximately $240,000 over 10 years.
The solar and LED projects, which were completed by Cherry Energy, come at a time when more of our clients are discussing ways in which they can introduce renewables into their electrical designs.
Our CEO, John Kelso, says, “We are committed to investing in sustainable practices that allow us to do business as normal while preserving the environment. We are proud to demonstrate ways of reducing greenhouse gas emissions that make good business sense.”
