Defries is going green.

Clean, renewable power is now used in Defries Industries' cleanroom. As part of their environmental project plan, the Melbourne-based company recently installed over 330 solar panels on the roof of its Dandenong South manufacturing facility.

To maximise its effect, Defries selected a powerful 97.2 kilowatt system covering all available roof space.

Every day Defries receives at least a third of its cleanroom's power requirement from its solar panels and on some days, they generate in excess of 200 per cent of the company's requirement so surplus electricity is diverted back into the grid.

From this initiative, Defries enjoys a significant reduction in energy usage, with the added benefit that it has reduced harmful emissions and reduced its carbon footprint.
