Calgraphics goes solar

Calgraphics Group has cut its power bills and received a “green tick” from its clients by going solar.

The Melbourne signage specialist installed a 35 kilowatt solar system on a third of its 1,200sqm roof space through solar panel company Sun Connect.

Calgraphics co-owner Anne Bennett said the system offered “reduced costs at a time when the price of energy is rising”.

“We had power supply issues and it was a substantial cost to upgrade if we remained solely with conventional power. The inclusion of solar power not only eased our power supply restrictions, but it was a natural progression for our business.”

Bennett also said “a green credentials tick is of great importance in today’s business world”.

“Our largely blue-chip clientele are increasingly asking about green business credentials. So it is an asset to say we are an environmentally sustainable business for our brand and reputation,” she said.

Bennett advised other printers to go solar, although she said they should do their research first.
