Alkimos Shopping Centre Microgrid, WA

What prompted the need for change?

Our client purchased a newly built medium-sized shopping centre in Alkimos, the fast expanding, residential suburb 40 km north of the Perth CBD. The property manager asked ONE to help reduce the cost of electricity to the centre and clients alike.

What solution did they go for?

Through our Solar PPA model, two 38KW solar arrays were installed to provide green energy within an embedded network. With a total of 76KW clean energy productions, tenants enjoy cheaper, greener electricity and the owners of the Centre enjoyed savings at no upfront cost.

What results are they experiencing?

Tenants enjoy cheaper, greener electricity and the owners of the Centre enjoyed savings at no upfront cost.

ONE invoices monthly electricity accounts automatically, acting as the energy retailer. The process is clean and simple.

Townsville Engineering - Bohle, Queensland

What prompted the need for change?

Townsville Engineering is an owned and operated company in Bohle, Queensland. The company  has over 40 years’ experience servicing local government, mining companies and bulk-handling  facilities.

When using everything from high-powered welders and milling machines, to air  conditioners and fans, it’s not surprising Townsville Engineering’s electricity usage is high.

What solution did they go for?

We analysed their electricity usage over an entire year and showed the business how much they could save by signing up to a 10-year PPA for an 80kW system.

What results are they experiencing?

The system is generating approximately a third of the businesses’ energy needs at a rate much lower than what they were paying for electricity from the grid.

Grain and Cotton Farm - Darlington, NSW

What prompted the need for change?

A large grain and cotton farm in NSW that irrigates through bores and experiences high energy  costs. One of the farm’s bores consumes approximately 415,622 kWh of energy annually. The  high cost of energy had a substantial impact on operational farming costs.

What solution did they go for?

A 292.5kW ground mount solar system was installed that is owned and operated by One Juice Energy. The solar system is expected to generate approx. 525,754 kWh per annum of  renewable energy. This has delivered a daytime energy saving of 43%. Over the lifetime of the  agreement the customer expects savings of approximately $512,725.
