Plas-Pak (W.A) (100kW)

Plas-Pak (W.A) (100kW)

Plas-Pak (W.A) is a plastic manufacturing and packing company back based in Malaga, W.A. They manufacture both blow moulded and injection moulded products that are supplied throughout Australia to a multitude of industries including the mining, agriculture and pharmaceutical industries.

Plas-Pak has a number of strategic objectives which includes maintaining competitive pricing for their customers and also reducing the impact the business has on the environment. The installation of a 100kW solar system fitted with both of these objectives, allowing Plas-Pak to reduce their electricity costs and also reduce the carbon footprint of their operations.

Infinite Energy conducted a full feasibility analysis on the installation of the solar system, including determining the best system size and projected savings. In addition to this, Infinite Energy also developed a monitoring and alert system which notifies key members of staff when the site’s electricity usage hits a certain level. This will allow Plas-Pak to fully understand and control their electricity usage leading to further savings.

In addition to the solar and monitoring system, Plas-Pak has also contracted with Infinite Energy to supply the remaining electricity demand not met by solar.
