At Porta’s Sawmill in Bridgewater, Tasmania, we are taking thoughtful steps towards integrating sustainability into our operations. The Solar Panel Project, completed in 2020, is a key part of our journey, demonstrating our initiative to adopt renewable energy and contribute to industry standards for environmental care.

Our Path to Green Innovation

Implementing Solar Energy for Enhanced Efficiency

The installation of solar panels at our Bridgewater sawmill represents a significant stride in our effort to embrace sustainability. This initiative, aimed at reducing our environmental footprint and improving operational efficiency, signifies our gradual and practical approach to incorporating sustainable business practices.

A Measured Move Towards Renewable Energy

Our foray into renewable energy, marked by the partnership with EB Solar for a rooftop solar power system, reflects our cautious yet committed stance on sustainability. This project is not just about expansion but represents a deliberate choice to reduce our dependence on non-renewable energy sources in a manageable way.

Practical Solutions for a Sustainable Direction

Faced with rising electricity costs and the desire to lessen our environmental impact, we sought out practical and effective energy solutions. The custom system designed by EB Solar, which offsets a significant portion of our energy use, exemplifies our approach: making meaningful changes that also align with our operational needs.

Thoughtful Design for Efficiency

The development of our 320kW solar power system was guided by careful planning and a focus on achieving a balance between innovation and our existing operations. Working closely with Tasnetworks, we aimed to create a system that fits our specific needs while making a positive environmental impact.

Porta’s Commitment to the Environment

This project is a crucial step in our broader strategy to adopt more sustainable practices. It reflects a careful balance between improving our operations and reducing our environmental footprint, indicating our ongoing efforts to act responsibly towards the environment.

The Solar Panel Project at Porta Sawmill is a vivid illustration of our sustainable journey, highlighting how environmental initiatives can be integrated seamlessly into industrial operations. It represents a major step forward in our mission to foster a sustainable industry standard, proving that with commitment and creativity, a greener future is within reach.
