Bunnings Australia and NZ energy efficiency

Bunnings remain committed to implementing more energy efficient ways to operate its business.

During the financial year a further five stores in Queensland, three stores in Western Australia and one store in the Northern Territory had 100 kilowatt solar photovoltaic systems installed. Each system is currently generating on average between 10 and 20 per cent of those store’s daily energy needs.

Bunnings continues to install energy efficient LED lighting in new stores and upgraded stores progressively, and retrofitting selected existing stores. Five existing stores had LED lighting installed throughout the year, with 14 stores retrofitted to date.

Further new generation solar photovoltaic systems and LED retrofits are planned for the coming financial year.
