A step towards sustainability
Online Distribution is very proud to have taken a step forward in sustainability this month with the installation of solar panels on the roof of our Port Hills Road warehouses in Christchurch.
The 280 panels, installed by the team from Sunshine Solar, are expected to generate significant electricity to power the three warehouses and the office building on that site. Any excess power will be sold back to the national grid.
With a three-year payback period, an estimated 20-year lifespan for the panels, the ability to add to the system in the future, and the potential for the panels to be relocated in the future if required, it wasn’t hard to see that the project would be financially viable.
We are now looking forward to seeing the results on this site before looking at what other options we have for further installations in the future.
