As a successful regional small business, Mitre 10 Busselton looked at its cost structure and asked: “How can we improve our bottom line and do it fast so we can continue to remain competitive in the market place?” Their first thought turned to the largest expense most businesses have - electricity.
Infinite Energy was able to demonstrate that not only would Mitre 10 reduce its consumption and spend, by going solar via a financing arrangement, they would also produce a positive off-balance sheet cash flow enabling the business to prosper. With roof space to spare, Infinite Energy’s analysis of the best orientation and positioning for the solar system was key to ensuring the maximum cost reduction. Mitre 10 has secured its longevity as a business in the southwest for many years to come by going solar with Infinite Energy.
