Energy accounts for approximately 10% of Heritage Fine Chocolates overheads and it’s an increasing operational cost, so they wanted to find a way to reduce energy costs in an environmentally friendly, sustainable way.
AGL proposed that Heritage Fine Chocolates enter into a solar power purchase agreement and installed a 99.7kW solar system. They had no upfront costs and started saving from the day the system was switched on, with low solar energy rates.
