The largest wool testing organisation in the world, the AWTA comprises of three divisions, AWTA Raw Wool, AWTA Product Testing and Agrifood Technology.
Established in 1957, the AWTA aims to promote the sale of Australian wool, while at the same time providing an accurate and impartial testing service based upon internationally recognised testing standards.
AWTA decided to invest in solar in order to fix their increasing electricity costs and secure a more sustainable future.
Acting solely on the financials of a traditional capital purchase, their original 150kW system was the largest rooftop solar PV system on the Western Power network at the time of installation.
Due to the incredible savings their first system delivered, AWTA decided to install an additional 200kW in 2017, bringing their total capacity to 350kW.
