Reducing energy costs with solar
Using solar is a great way to help reduce business operational costs. As part of Origin's Solar Flex a business owner can lock in a daytime energy rate that is lower than the rate they usually pay on their energy bills from the grid.
In the case of Townsville Engineering, Origin's solar team inspected their 5,000 plus square meter building site, and analysed that the business could save approximately a third of its energy needs at a rate much lower than what they were usually paying. The company decided to go solar, with an 80kW system after meeting with Origin, with no capital outlay in the system. General Manager Richard shared "the whole process has been easy since Origin came back to us with this new option."
Driving sustainability outcomes in the business
In addition to reducing costs for the firm, going solar also enabled Townsville Engineering to reduce its carbon footprint. This is a great differentiator for the business when dealing with customers that want to choose a more sustainable supplier. The General Manager said, "We’re excited to see the new electricity savings, but are also glad that we can find a way to be environmentally conscious."
