Get Lost Travel Group is one of Australia’s largest independent small group tour operators, carrying more than 75,000 passengers a year. Based out of a large warehouse space in Williamstown North, Get Lost Travel were interested in becoming more energy efficient and improving their green credentials.
To reduce their energy expenditure, Cherry recommended a full LED upgrade of the warehouse and office space. In the warehouse, the old Metal Halide Highbays were replaced with ZETTA 120W LED Highbays and in the office, the old fluorescent tubes were replaced with FORTIS 15W LED Tubes. Upgrading a total of 73 lights is now saving Get Lost more than $4,700 per annum, reducing their energy expenditure on lighting by 68%!
As part of their Think Green Initiative, Get Lost Travel combined their LED lighting upgrade with the installation of a 20.52 kW solar system. The new system is made up of 76 270W Q-Cells solar panels and a Fronius inverter. In partnership with Hobsons Bay City Council’s Energy$mart Program, Cherry were able to offer a subsidy of $2,783 towards the cost of the LED and solar upgrade. In total, Get Lost is now saving more than $9,800 per annum on their energy expenditure, a fantastic result!
“I can’t thank you enough for the professionalism Cherry has shown us towards becoming a more sustainable organisation. We would be delighted to work with your team again!” Caitlin Sewell | Director, Get Lost Travel
