550 kW, Multi Site WA
Bunnings is the leading retailer of home improvement and outdoor living products in Australia and New Zealand and a major supplier to project builders, commercial tradespeople and the housing industry. Operating from a network of large warehouse stores, smaller format stores, trade centres and frame and truss sites, Bunnings caters for consumer and commercial customers.
West Australian Alternative Energy was engaged to design and install a 100kW solar PV system for each of the Bunnings Warehouse sites at Cockburn, Port Kennedy and Balcatta. In addition, a 250kw solar system was installed at the Australind site.
With a strong focus on sustainability, Bunnings wanted to not only reduce their energy use and costs, but to reduce their reliance on the grid. By choosing renewable energy and installing solar, West Australian Alternative Energy has assisted Bunnings in working towards their sustainability targets.
