Capricorn Case Study | Commercial Solar Energy | Infinite Energy



Founded in 1974 by a small group of WA service station owners, Capricorn was formed to increase the group’s collective buying power and consequently level the playing field with the multinational oil companies. 

Capricorn offers members a broad range of services including equipment finance, travel services and business protection.

With over 16,000 members and over 1,800 Preferred Suppliers across Australia and New Zealand, Capricorn is an integral co-operative in the WA community.

In order to lower their electricity costs, Capricorn approached several solar providers for a proposal. Ultimately Infinite Energy was chosen due to our excellent product range and commercial installation experience.

In October 2016 we installed a 99.41kW SunPower system, which will reduce their annual electricity bill by at least $42,500.
