Replas is Australia's leading recycled plastic manufacturer aimed at providing a solution for plastic waste with effective sustainable products.
How we helped
With values built around sustainability, the company was looking at ways it could reduce its environmental impact through clean energy.
After seeking out a few solar companies, Replas engaged with Choice Energy to undertake a solar feasibility report for its Ballarat manufacturing site.
It was determined that installing solar would provide huge economic and environmental benefits. Choice Energy also installed a power factor correction unit to allow the company to maintain good power factor.
Replas later installed solar at their Recycling Education Centre in Carrum Downs, one of the largest environmental centres in Australia, that offers an innovative and interactive learning experience for visitors seeking answers to the problems faced by our planet.
Replas will save $2.5 million dollars over the next 25 years across both sites
Equivalent to the carbon sequestered by 3,169 tree seedlings grown for 10 years
Equivalent to greenhouse gas emissions avoided from 40.7 vehicles driven for one year
“Given the amount of power we use, it makes complete sense to have solar panels on the roof. We’ve had many solar companies come through our door. Choice Energy gave us confidence. The whole process was well laid out with good communication the whole way.”
