Conga Foods is one of Australia’s leading private, family-owned companies in the grocery industry.
With their large warehouse spaces and long operating hours, the opportunity to upgrade to LED lighting and solar with Cherry Energy Solutions was an easy way to improve the business’ bottom line. In addition to saving money, Conga Foods were especially interested in reducing their carbon emissions, increasing productivity and improving the working environment.
The solution involved an LED upgrade of 733 new lights and the installation of a 458.46 kW solar system. The new solar system is made up of 1,698 panels, spread across two areas of Conga’s large roof space.
The LED upgrade involved the installation of 150W Cherry LED Highbays, T8 LED Tubes, ARGO LED Corn Lights and our FORTIS LED Tri-Proof Lights. In total, 733 lights were upgraded. With the long operating hours and significantly lower operating temperatures, Conga Foods can be confident that their new LED lights will last longer and comply with strict Australian food manufacturing standards
The large-scale solar system will provide 41% of Conga Foods’ energy needs, significantly reducing their reliance on the grid.
