Impact International officially opened their solar farm on the 1st June 2018 at their manufacturing site in Smithfield, NSW. The Hon Chris Bowen MP, the current Shadow Treasurer of Australia, and the Hon Dr Hugh McDermott MP cut the ribbon on this unique installation in front of customers, suppliers and staff.
The installation contains 1,000 solar panels, with the grounded mounted component manufactured in Australia using 5B ground mounts. As a site, we will generate 397MWh of energy each year. That’s 1088kWh a day generated on site. Our solar farm will eliminate at least 300 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year, which would otherwise be the work of 345 acres of trees.
The solar farm installation represents another investment by Impact, helping us to supply the market with high-quality tubes manufactured using the smallest carbon footprint possible.
