The facility requires around 22 GWh of electricity annually and we plan to deliver around 5GWh of renewable energy from the installation of a 5MW rooftop solar system integrated with a 15MW battery energy storage system. The remaining 17 GWh will be sourced overtime from our portfolio of in-front-of-the-meter portfolio assets and other contracted renewable generation.
Our plan is to commission assets progressively allowing us to increase the proportion of renewables until we reach our net-zero target in 2029. Throughout this process our capital investment will give The Arnott’s Group certainty over the site’s electricity costs, facilitating a smooth transition to the use of renewable energy.
By leverageding our behind the meter assets under development at this site, we are enabling The Arnott’s Group to advance their net-zero agenda for Scope 1 and 2 emissions by almost a decade.
