Luxaflex Window Fashions is one of the latest manufacturers to take action against rising energy costs, revealing a 2080-strong solar panel installation on the roof of its Sydney manufacturing facility.

Reckoned to be the world’s largest installation of Sunpower P19 panels, the solar array will generate more than 29 million kilowatt-hours of energy across its 30-year project life, saving more than 24kt of CO2 emissions and more than 8kt of waste from landfill.

According to Jenny Brown, National Marketing Manager of Luxaflex Window Fashions: “This significant investment in green energy is yet another step in our commitment to sustainability, and responsible development is evidenced by our continuous efforts to address environmental concerns, improve production processes, eliminate waste and reduce maintenance.”

Most Luxaflex products are manufactured in Australia, and so the 54,880m2 Sydney facility sees thousands of window coverings created and distributed nationwide every week.

“We are strongly committed to a sustainable future through initiatives that support the environment and local economy. This install is notable for the cutting edge technology and the exceptional return on investment it will yield within five years. It has also created jobs for local workers to bring this impressive project to life,” continued Brown.

The installation was managed by Smart Commercial Solar and also features the new SMA Core 1 inverter.
