Week 1 – Day #5 – a few hold ups due to high winds and bad weather.
Week 2 – Day #8 done & dusted. There’s not a lot different to see, but if you look closely, you can see more wires & rail that has been installed this week.
Week 2 – Day #8. Solar Panels ready and waiting to be installed.
8. Week 3 – Day #13. We’re making good progress with 51 Solar Panels installed, and just another 305 to go!
10. Week 4. We lost 4 days to rain last week, but got the back section finished today. Ever closer to completion.
11. Week 5. The solar installation at Colormaker Industries has now been completed and we are so excited!
356 solar panels will generate all our electricity, and at times we’ll be exporting excess renewable energy back to the grid. At peak production, estimates indicate we’ll be generating enough energy to power 15-20 homes, and furthermore, the electricity Colormaker Industries produces will save the production of over 100 tonnes of greenhouse gas per year.
Take a look at the following photos for our completed installation on the roofs of our factory and office complex.
Check out the above video showing drone footage of the completed Colomaker Solar Panel project.
On Friday 27/9/19, we were honoured to welcome the Federal Member for Warringah, Ms Zali Steggall, OAM to officially open Colormaker Industries Solar Panel Installation by cutting the ribbon and switching on the solar panels.
Colormaker Industries is so very proud that now there’s a little bit of Australian sunshine ☀️☀️☀️going into every pot of PERMASET, PERMATONE & PERMAPRINT PREMIUM inks and PERMAPLASTIK scenic paint we manufacture here at our factory in Brookvale!
