CBH Group installs solar power

A grain handling company CBH Group has installed solar power facilities at three grain receival sites in West Australia for $1.2 million. With the installation of solar power facilities the company aims to reduce electricity bills.

CBH is also building a $600,000 carport with solar panel on top near its news office at Geraldton port.

The company spends about $2 million per year for power at the power terminal , but CBH Geraldton Port Zone manager Duncan Gray to ABC  said the solar panels would reduce the power bill by 10 per cent.

He said “tere’s about 550 panels in the whole structure. I’m told it generates about 150 kilowatts, which I’m told in science terms is a fair bit.

The company expects its solar power plant to be connected to the grid by the end of May.
