John Papas Trailers is a virtual household name in WA. Starting as a family business in 1963 and still owned and managed by the family today, John Papas trailers is one of the most recognisable trailers on WA roads. The Company has grown substantially over the years, recently opening a new manufacturing and showroom operation in Welshpool. With over 50 years’ experience, Papas Trailers has become synonymous with quality workmanship and excellent service. With this mindset, Papas Trailers engaged and selected Infinite Energy to prepare and install a quality solar energy project for its new Welshpool operation.
Being also an electricity retailer, Infinite Energy was able to further assist Papas Trailers with energy cost reduction. Whilst on the one hand, reducing grid electricity consumption via solar power, Infinite Energy has also provided a reduction in grid electricity cost via a tailored electricity tariff plan. Being a five and a half day operation, Papas, like many businesses gift their solar power they make on the weekend back to the grid. Most often this is done so for no benefit. With a custom tariff from Infinite Energy, Papas now enjoy solar credits whenever they feed solar power back to the grid, especially on weekends. Infinite Energy has all of Papas energy needs covered.
By detailing concisely the financial benefit to Papas Trailers’, outlining the merits of the available transaction methods for the solar system, Infinite Energy facilitated Papas in strategizing how best to take advantage of the financial tool that is solar power. As part of a greater expansion of the business and a drive to make the organisation, responsive, nimble and flexible, Papas have set themselves up with the best energy overheads possible and will continue to prosper in the years ahead.
