How we helped
With a large 24-hour usage and over $100,000 in electricity expenditure per year, the directors of San Carlo Homes for the Aged were looking at innovative ways to cut the business’ electricity costs.
The operators engaged with Choice Energy to see if solar could help to reduce the business’ energy costs.
Choice Energy installed a 232kW solar solution to allow San Carlo Homes for the Aged to start producing its own energy
By engaging with Choice Energy, the facility’s peak energy costs have reduced by approximately $80,000 per yea
The facility qualified for up to $15,000 in government funding per year until 2030 due to their reduction in carbon emission
