Coca-Cola Amatil is to install 10,000 commercial solar panels across three of its bottling operations in the next 8–10 months. The 3.5-megawatt rooftop solar PV system will help to cut CCA’s annual energy costs by up to $1.3million.

Energy services company Verdia will manage the solar panel rollout across three sites in three different states. After installation it is anticipated that CCA will be drawing around 14% less energy from the local electricity grid across these three sites, which equates to a reduction of 4163 tons of greenhouse gas each year.

“On current figures the installation will pay for itself in six to seven years and is expected to provide an additional $14 million benefit over its lifetime,” said Peter West, CCA Managing Director for Australian Beverages.

“We’re also committed to obtaining at least 60% of our energy needs from renewable and low-carbon sources, by 2020.

“So, this installation is a win-win for us, and congratulations to the team at Verdia for helping make it a reality.

“Verdia completed site inspections, electrical connection investigations, engineering designs and financial modelling as part of the scoping work for the project.

It will then manage more than 50 contractors and suppliers working across New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia to fast track the project delivery. Verdia will continue to monitor and maintain the systems.
