An independently owned Australian company, Tough Glass supplies both industry and residential clients in WA with glass toughening and processing services.
With a state of the art warehouse located in Wangara, Tough Glass utilises fully automated and computerised manufacturing to ensure high-quality products at shorter lead times. However, this also resulted in high electricity bills.
In order to reduce these costs and offset the amount of electricity Tough Glass approached Infinite Energy for a solar solution.
In December 2015, we installed a 100kW system that will offset their former electricity usage by 17% and save them over $32,000 a year.
