  8. Solar Power

    JB Metropolitan Distributors has finalised its solar construction at its premises in Moorebank.

    330kw of panels were installed over August and September by Genelec Power Systems.

    JB Metro has long looked at ways of recycling and reducing waste inside our warehouses. By reusing cartons and removing fax lines we've cut back on our paper/cardboard use over the year. This new solar installation is already saving over 1 tonne of CO2 per day.
