WE ARE NOW 100% POWERED BY GREEN ENERGY
Our journey to reducing carbon emissions.
Hi-Vis Group has embraced solar powered technology for many years powering our range of LED signs. Our work initially provided a solution to our customers by giving them access to smart technology in remote locations.
In applying the learning and knowledge in adapting solar and wind powered technology to solve our customer problems, our teams not only appreciate the true potential of sun and wind as a power source but have been able to apply this knowledge in our own journey to reduce carbon emissions.
In March 2020, 302 solar panels were installed onto our Carrington manufacturing facility with the aim of being carbon neutral by the end of 2020. This was achieved ahead of schedule by end of May 2020, meaning Hi-Vis Group saves over 145 tonnes of carbon emissions each year! These panels now supply 96kW of energy, currently 40% more than our manufacturing facility uses on average.
In October 2021, 68 more panels were installed onto our office building rooftop, enabling over 3.3 mW weekly of solar power to supply all the energy needs of both our office and manufacturing facilities. All our machinery, printers, routers, laminators, copiers, overhead/office lighting, computing and air conditioning are now powered by green energy. This is way more energy than our facility needs and we then, on a daily basis, are pushing any energy balance back to grid to service others in our community.
