"Renewable energy powered revolution in the retailer industry"
The supermarket chain Aldi rolls out one of Australia’s largest rooftop solar projects: The 1MW 3,400 panel array in Brendale, Queenland, which is expected to be sufficient to cover the daytime power requirements of its Brendale distribution centre.
The array will generate enough solar electricity to power more than 270 Queensland homes.
Echo managing director, Oliver Hartley, said solar was “a perfect fit” for supermarkets, with large commercial solar systems able to supply “a significant chunk” of their electricity needs.
“ALDI is well placed to drive a renewable energy powered revolution in the retailer industry across Australia,” he said.
In Germany, the majority of Aldi stores cool their merchandise and run their lighting on solar power, using most of the 95 million kWh of electricity generated by rooftop PV in their home country for energy self-sufficiency.

1000 Profitable Solutions To Solve Climate Change
1000 solutions that protect the environment in a profitable way - the countdown has begun!
Following the success of the first solar flight around the World, the Solar Impulse Foundation has launched the second phase of its action: selecting #1000 solutions that can protect the environment in a profitable way, and bring them to decision makers to encourage them to adopt much more ambitious environmental targets and energy policies.
“I would like to ask this Chamber whether it can think of any greater intergenerational theft than failing to act on climate change. Whether it can think of any greater act of intergenerational theft than letting the vested coal and various fossil fuel interests, which seem to run this government, rob my generation of its future. Of a safe and healthy environment in which to raise our kids. Because I cannot.”
“We cannot discuss the issue of climate change without discussing the Adani coal mine, of which Senator Canavan seems to be such a huge fan. Let's be clear - support for this project amounts to nothing more than intergenerational theft.”
