COMPANY PROFILE

The solar installation was done for a Sawmill factory that is part of the Timber & Forestry industry in Australia. It is a long-running
establishment that is located in the town of Yarra Junction, Victoria, which is known for its historical association with the timber
tramway.

ENERGY COSTS BEFORE SOLAR

Just like any large-scale business, they were concerned with optimum utilization of their capital, and a big hinderance to that were the
high energy costs that resulted from operating heavy lumber processing machinery.

The company’s average monthly bill for utility costs was almost $12,000.

Therefore, in order to reduce their overall energy costs, an industrial scale solar system with GEE Energy was suggested to help meet
their energy requirement while also being cost-effective and sustainable.

on energy consumption.

According to our financial analysis, the factory’s annual bill before installing solar stood at approx. $142,000. After

timber or lumber processing machinery.
