Verdia helps large businesses create value, reduce costs and achieve environmental targets with renewable and energy efficiency projects including solar PV, LED lighting, energy storage, power purchase agreements (PPA) and project finance.
Verdia utilises Westpac’s Energy Efficient Finance Program. This program combines our energy expertise and network of leading energy equipment vendors, with financial know-how from the world’s most sustainable bank.
We believe that we have an important role to help Australia transition to a renewable energy economy. We understand that human induced climate change is real but with positive action we can help mitigate its impact.
To inspire more action, we produced this short video.
One of Victoria’s largest industrial solar power stations has been powered up at the high tech Nine Mile Fresh apple processing and packing facility in South East Gippsland, helping to cut onsite energy use by one-third and making a large dent in the food processor’s spiraling energy bills…

DOLLARS SAVED IN ENERGY COSTS
Reduction in carbon emissions
EQUIVALENT TO VEHICLES TAKEN OFF THE ROAD
Verdia’s understanding of the equipment being financed – and the different finance options – meant that we were able to commission a solar energy system three times the size of the one we were originally considering. As a result, we’ll achieve considerably higher energy cost savings and a bigger reduction in our carbon footprint.
As a church, we believe in safeguarding our planet for future generations. Furthermore, with a congregation of more than 40,000 people, we have a responsibility to lead and ensure we set an example in our community. We saw this project as a tangible way of demonstrating this.
As our delivery partner, Verdia will help Stockland set a new standard in solar for retail and for NSW, helping create sustainable energy for our retailers, our customers, and the communities we operate in.
Verdia ensured we had complete oversight of the project and didn’t need to worry about a thing. All up, the installation was completed in less than a month – it’s often the regulatory approval that draws out timeframes for projects like ours.
Experts from Verdia have worked with us every step of the way to ensure our solar equipment is high quality and new lighting provides a welcoming environment for our residents, with minimal disruption to their routine.
On current figures, the installation will pay for itself in six to seven years and is expected to provide an additional $14 million benefit over its lifetime. This installation is a win-win for us, and congratulations to the team at Verdia for helping make it a reality.
