Commercial Case Studies

Dunninghams was established in 1921 and offers New Zealand’s most comprehensive range of butchery supplies to butcher's all over the country. The privately owned business recently undertook their own energy audit to identify opportunities to make operational cost savings. This audit resulted in a number of recommendations including the implementation of efficient LED warehouse lighting systems, a new back-up generator and a desire to reduce their monthly electricity billl.

One option that quickly seemed to make sense was to install a commercial solar power system. Like most businesses, Dunninghams have relatively high baseload energy demands that can be offset by solar power during the day. This combined with a large flat roof on which to install the commercial solar system on and you have a perfect solution. So at the end of 2015 PowerSmart installed a state of the art 86kW Grid-tied commercial solar electricity system on the roof of Dunninghams in Auckland.
