Solar energy and electricity consumption monitoring

In 2017 we installed solar systems on our office buildings at Port Botany and Port Kembla and began tracking energy using an energy monitoring and metering service.

At Port Kembla we installed a 42kW solar system while at Port Botany we installed an extra 17kW system to increase existing solar capacity and reduce the environmental footprint of office activities. By monitoring our energy usage, we are able to manage unexpected energy spikes and surges.

Outcome

We achieved a 21% reduction in electricity consumption at our Port Botany and Port Kembla office buildings compared to our FY15 baseline.
