Australian Fluid Handling (AFH) is one of Australia’s leading providers of customised and engineered compressors, pumps and skid packaged equipment.
With a wide range of industrial machinery, large warehouse space and long operating hours, AFH were well positioned to save by upgrading to LED lighting.
Over 140 LED lights were installed; a combination of Cherry LED troffers, downlights, corn lights and oyster lights. These products will reduce AFH’s lighting energy usage by 63% and, due to their lifespan of over 50,000hrs, reduce maintenance costs by $700 per annum.
In collaboration with the Hobsons Bay City Council’s Light$mart program, Cherry Energy Solutions was able to help AFH access a local council rebate and, by installing Victorian Energy Efficiency Scheme approved Cherry LED products, AFH received an additional rebate of 30% off the initial install price.
After the installation, Dietmar Hildebrand, CEO reported receiving an excellent service, completed to perfection.
In addition to LED lighting, AFH opted to install a 14.04 kW solar system to further reduce their energy bills. The solar system will produce energy equivalent to $3,530 each year.
After the LED and solar upgrades, AFH saved an additional $3,000 through energy broking thanks to Cherry and Choice Energy.
