Scaling manufacturing output with a competitive edge.

What they needed

Atherton & Sons are a large scale manufacturing business who approached Greenwood to find a solution for reducing their electricity costs of over $70,000 p/a. The business was embarking on the development of a third factory to increase their manufacturing output but were concerned about their annual electricity costs increasing and jeopardising their competitiveness.

Our Solution

"We've had the system commissioned for 12 months, the impact of the installation is cost neutral, coupled with the finance package the repayments are easily met by the savings from the panels."

Tom Atherton
Managing Director, Atherton & Sons

The Result

The solar system Atherton and Sons purchased has reduced their electricity consumption by 52%. We also constructed a finance package which had a zero net impact to Atherton and Sons operating cost. The finance has a five year pay back period after which, Atherton and Sons will own the system and realise further cost savings.
