Hipex is an Australian company that specialises in the design, manufacture and installation of heat exchangers, equipment and systems for the food processing industry. The business’ experienced staff have knowledge in almost all areas of the food processing industry.
With onsite manufacturing, Hipex’s electricity outgoings were up around $40,000 per annum.
How we helped
Hipex enlisted Choice Energy to see how the business could save on its energy costs.
After running a solar feasibility assessment, Choice Energy identified significant savings could be found by installing a 65kW turnkey commercial solar system.
As a turnkey solar provider, Choice Energy coordinated the whole process right through to installation.
Choice Energy continues to provide ongoing monitoring of the system to ensure the system is working as it should, while exploring other solutions for cost-savings.
By investing in solar, the business is projected to save $20,000 per year.
The solar system is expected to reduce peak consumption by more than 50%.
The installation of the solar system was partly subsidised by over $45,000 in government rebates, under the Renewable Energy Act.
