Established in 1984, Signs & Lines is an ISO 9001 certified sign design and manufacturing company based in Midvale, Western Australia. Aspiring to be the leading WA sign manufacturing company in terms of reputation and quality, Signs & Lines designs, manufactures and installs bespoke and off-the-shelf sign solutions in the retail, corporate, education, architectural and government spaces.
Deciding to invest in solar power came at the same time as a retail rise in electricity cost for Signs & Lines. Cost control was a major driver for company when making the decision on whether to invest in solar. The company was attracted to the opportunity of avoiding the impact of future price rises through self-generation of power.
By providing a clear, concise financial position statement on the benefit of the system and referencing other completed projects, Infinite Energy was able to satisfy Signs & Lines that the investment was a sound one.
They decided to invest in a quality 40kW Infinite Energy solar PV system at their sign manufacturing operation in Midvale, Western Australia. The new system enables Signs & Lines to reduce its reliance on daytime grid power whilst improving its environmental credentials.
Infinite Energy also facilitated a modern solar leasing arrangement that proved the right way to unlock the benefits of the project, leaving core business activities unaffected from a cash flow basis.
By deciding to go solar, Signs & Lines has afforded itself a strong cost management strategy, thus providing present and future sustainability. For more information on Signs & Lines decision to go solar with Infinite Energy please visit their blog: www.thesignblog.com.au
