Colonial Foods Installs 60kW Solar Power on NSW Factory

Colonial Foods Central Coast 60kW Solar Panel installation


NSW based food manufacturer, Colonial Foods has installed a 60kW system on the roof of their warehouse in Somersby, NSW.

The company was looking to make a positive impact on the environment by reducing the carbon footprint of its operations. This project will offset an estimated 1,519 tonnes of CO2 emissions which is the equivalent of taking almost 17 cars permanently off the road.

Solar Choice was engaged to provide independent analysis and advice on the different options available to the business owners and manage a competitive tender process which enabled the business to access better than market rates.

The installed solar power systems on the warehouse feature 150 x 400W Risen Jager Solar Panels and 2 x Goodwe 25kW inverters.

Overall, the solar system will save the business over $140k in electricity costs over the next 20 years assuming no increases in electricity prices.
