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.
HJ Langdon engaged our partner Beon Energy Solutions to explore options to reduce their operating costs and move towards sustainability. Our team worked with Beon, the client and Brimbank City Council to arrange the finance and ensure the project moved quickly and smoothly. At the time of installation this was the largest EUF funded solar installation in Australia, and Brimbank City Council’s first EUF project.
Installation of a 430.10kW mounted solar array. The project was funded by an Environmental Upgrade Agreement over 7 years.
$120k saved per annum
561.4 tCO2-e abated per annum
Savings exceed repayments by 33%
“I now have peace of mind that a certain portion of my energy bill will not be affected by any increases in energy bills, and that gives me a lot of confidence when planning for the future of the company. We want to be around for our 200th anniversary and beyond.”
Other Success Stories
Northern Golf Club
When your club has over 100 years of heritage, it’s bound to be time to refurbish. With the old clubhouse looking a bit tired and run-down, Northern Golf Club planned to build a new one, with the added bonus of solar panels.
This commercial and retail precinct (built in the 80s) used an Environmental Upgrade Agreement to finance building upgrades that improved building efficiency and saved them hundreds of thousands of dollars on their yearly energy bill.
