The clean energy revolution for waste

You must be living under a rock If you have missed the chaos occurring in the waste and resource recovery sector lately.

With the recent changes to the distribution of waste in Australia, and a lack of support and cohesion from councils and governments, businesses are facing unprecedented challenges. And as energy-intensive users, the rising cost of energy is a significant concern.

But there is good news: commercial solar is a proven way for businesses to reduce their energy costs, and with a range of rebates and funding programs available, the affordability of commercial solar is at an all-time high.

How solar is revolutionising waste:

As a result of our work with waste and resource recovery businesses, we have helped businesses take back control and reduce their energy costs, by avoiding the ever-increasing cost of grid power.

To extend upon our success and help the sector prosper, we have recently joined the Victorian Waste Management Association, a group representing the interests of Victorian waste and recycling businesses.

By investing in a system, owners can benefit from:

  • A renewable energy source they own
  • A guaranteed energy output that Choice Energy back with a guarantee
  • Live reporting and a monthly performance report to ensure you understand how much energy your system is outputting.

Naturally, the shift to clean energy also supports these businesses social responsibility goals by operating in a more environmentally-conscious manner.

Who we've helped so far:


Australia’s leading plastic manufacturer will save $2.5 million over the next 25 years and will avoid outputting close to 186.7 tons of carbon dioxide every year. Learn more.
