Passionate about maintaining a manufacturing presence in Australia, Slumbercorp knew that if they were to stay the course, a new approach to cost management would be required. The manufacturer of high quality bedding, they identified the opportunity to reduce their consumption of electricity in order to improve its profitability.
A fast growing family owned business, Slumbercorp wanted to provide a buffer to cash flow to protect themselves in an ever evolving retail environment. After engaging Infinite Energy, Slumbercorp was diligent in the selection of project developer and equipment when deciding to go solar. No element of the project was left to chance, from structural assessment and council approval through to guiding Slumbercorp through changes to its electricity tariff structure with its existing retailer.
Through the energy cost savings that solar power provides Slumbercorp, it has bolstered its bottom line and is now well on its way to achieving its objective of a lower cost operating environment and being a force in local manufacturing for WA industry.
