In July last year Gippsland’s Wellington Shire Council signed up to Sustainable Victoria’s TAKE2 pledge to tackle climate change and assist Victoria in reaching net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. As part of that pledge Wellington Shire Council tendered a project to install solar panels at their works depots in Yarram and Maffra.
Rockys won the contract to install a 27.6 kW solar power array. Rocky’s also conducted energy audits that led to an LED lighting upgrade at both sites which will make a significant saving on energy usage, reduce costs and have a measurable impact on their environmental footprint.
With a Return for Investment of around 36.8% the installations are expected to pay for themselves in under 3 years.
