Minecorp Australia is committed to reducing its Carbon Footprint. During the month of May, a commercial solar installation was finalised. Partnering with Planet Ark and G0ZERO, a 100Kw system comprising of 384 solar panels has been commissioned. The system has the ability to generate 100Kw of power per hour for up to 10 hours a day in the hot Queensland sun. The power is utilised directly, and any excess generated during the day is sold back to power grid. This has reduced Minecorp’s power consumption by approx 30%, with almost 9000Kw generated since commissioning. This represents a reduction in C02 emissions of 75000kgs annually, or the equivalent of planting 12,000 trees!
