SOLAR CASE STUDY
The award-winning custom kitchen company, Zeel Kitchens, is another great Australian business that is reducing their energy costs with a solar.
In December 2019, VISTA installed a 100kW solar system at Zeel Kitchen’s facility in Rockingham, Western Australia. VISTA also upgraded Zeel Kitchen’s factory lighting to LED highbays.
During the initial audit process Zeel Kitchens expressed that they were able to adjust their daily start time in order to maximise the effectiveness of the solar in tackling their grid consumption. As a 5 day a week business with minimal weekend consumption VISTA was able to model the projected solar generation curve against the average consumption profile for the site throughout the year. By changing the work start time from 7am to 8 am Zeel Kitchens were able to reduce their grid consumption by a projected 52% across the year.
The solar installation mandated certain upgrades to the grid connection and VISTA was able to engineer a solution and work together with Western Power (network distributor) to bolt onto the external meter-board and minimise any workplace disruption.
“Thanks to the team at VISTA for making the installation of our Solar Energy System so easy. Their process from start to finish was professional and seamless with no downtime or disruption to our business. Looking forward to the benefits of reducing our Electricity Bills whilst more importantly reducing our carbon footprint.”
