The DISTRIBUTORS

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

“Paul and the team at Vista helped us identify areas that we could make energy savings with our warehouse and office lighting and rolled our agreed option in a smooth and professional manner. We are very happy with our cost savings and will be looking to work with Vista as we expand the business.”
