Solar & lighting case study

The Distributors (Perth) is part of Australia’s leading national independent, convenience segment wholesalers specialising in the Confectionery, Snack food, Beverage and Grocery market segments.

As one of 39 warehousing sites nationally, The Distributors (Perth) was seeing their energy costs getting higher and higher. In an industry with very tight margins, owner Josh Sherlock was very focused on reducing costs.

In May 2020, Vista Energy installed a 39.6kW solar system at The Distriubtors’ facility in Canning Vale. Vista Energy also upgraded their lighting – using a combination of Vista Energy’s custom built highbay lights, LED tubes and floodlights.

  • Projected Reduction in Grid Consumption: 50%
  • Solar System Size: 39.6kW
  • Annual C02 Reduction:  108 tonnes per annum
  • Annual CO2 Reduction equivalency: 1,800 seedlings planted annually and grown for 10 years
