Reduce risk and increase your competitive advantage with sustainable solar and storage solutions to meet your individual requirements.
Australian Mining companies are realizing that the abundance of sunshine in Australia makes it a worthwhile exercise to harness the power of the sun to create solar energy and reduce energy costs.
With 24-hour operations and vast technical equipment, mine sites are a source of high energy consumption and are often in remote areas where they aren’t connected to the power grid. Their main dependence is on diesel-generated power plants to produce electricity. This, along with the numerous costs of mining itself, makes diesel-generated power a very pricey expense for mining companies and can pose challenges such as transport and logistics.
