HJ Langdon is an Australian, fifth generation family owned specialist food company offering a range of ingredients, services and niche food products in Asia Pacific, Australia and New Zealand. The current trading premise was built in 2002 and contains refrigeration, storage, a humidifier, office and covers over 19,000 sqm. It’s an energy hungry facility that has been feeling the effects of increasing power bills.

Installation of a 430.10kW mounted solar array. The project was funded by an Environmental Upgrade Agreement over 7 years.
