Beacon Lighting is Australia’s leading and largest specialist retailer of lighting, ceiling fans and light globes. As their presence grows to over 95 stores across Australia, Beacon’s mission is to light people’s lives through their advanced lighting and energy efficient solutions.
Beyond their impressive range and Beacon Solar’s trusted delivery of renewable solar energy, Beacon Lighting is continuing their commitment to energy sustainability through their National Solar Project.
Upstream Energy - who has a collaborative partnership with Beacon Solar - developed a proposal to deliver clean energy to Beacon Lighting’s portfolio to reduce operational costs, lower greenhouse gas emissions, and promote sustainability. The project when completed will see Beacon become a retail industry leader by lowering their energy usage carbon footprint by up to 75% and capitalising on under-utilised roof space in their leased buildings.
Beacon’s electricity profile was particularly constant and predictable with seven-day consumption, predominantly during daylight hours. The national project – one of the largest collective commercial installations in Australia – will see Upstream install up to 6MW, potentially reducing Beacon’s annual energy spend by up to 20-30% per store while cutting expected energy carbon emissions by over 8 million kilograms each year.
