Malibu Fresh(40kW)

Malibu Fresh(40kW)

Malibu Fresh is a fresh foods business that has experienced a significant increase in electricity costs due to recent increases in the price of electricity. Their main power usage is refrigeration, air-conditioning and lighting. Infinite Energy recommended the installation of a 39kW solar PV system at their premises to offset the majority of their daytime electricity consumption. It now produces over 66.5MWh of electricity p.a. and reduces Malibu Fresh's carbon footprint by offsetting over 54,500kg's of C02 emissions per year.

The system will offset their day time refrigeration cost, which results in a fantastic return on investment.

Malibu Fresh have also chosen to utilise remote access to their production data via the internet and mobile devices so they can track the effect the system is having on their business and monitor its operation.
