Peuker & Alexander

Industry:

Timber & Truss Manufacturing

The situation

The large industrial space in Campbellfield was using an enormous amount of energy per annum, with 100,000 kWh from lighting alone.

Cherry were chosen as the only national provider that could offer a total energy solutions package for Peuker & Alexander.

The solution

Peuker & Alexander opted to retrofit 150 existing light fittings. This involved the replacement of 42W T8 Tubes with 15W and 32W LED Troffers and 400W Metal Halide Globes with 150W High Performance LED Globes.

The Cherry LED lights will reduce Peuker & Alexander’s lighting usage by 62% and with their lifetime of over 50,000hrs, will reduce maintenance costs by over $15,000.

TOTAL SAVINGS ON LIGHTING EXCEED $15,000

The premium 99kW solar system was made up on 384 Renesola 260W solar panels and Fronius 25kW inverters. It was secured with top of the range Clenergy mounting equipment. This size system will generate over 118,000 kWh per annum and made Peuker & Alexander eligible for over 1,700 Small-Scale Technology Certificates which are equivalent to a discount of over $65,000 on the total system cost.

AVERAGE VALUE OF ENERGY PRODUCED PER ANNUM $20,937

Peuker & Alexander were able to save a further $14,313 by changing their network tariff post-LED & solar upgrade. This is a service provided exclusively by Cherry and our energy broking partners.
