Sunergise New Zealand and Hancocks Wine, Spirit & Beer Merchants today celebrate the launch of a 211kWp solar power system to improve efficiencies at Hancocks’ Auckland Centre.

The 211 kWp solar implementation at Hancocks’ brand new large-scale facility in Auckland’s newest industrial and logistics hub at Māngere will provide both economic and environmental benefits. The grid-connected rooftop system is expected to generate 271 MWh of energy annually while offsetting 26,379 kg of carbon from entering the atmosphere – equivalent to planting 3,156 trees.

Sunergise New Zealand operations director René Kuys says, “We are delighted to be able to provide, clean, green, cost effective solar power to Hancocks’ Auckland centre. Sunergise has over 20MW of solar installed around the region, it is exciting to see a New Zealand business with such a strong history sharing our vision for a renewably powered future and taking a positive approach to meet today’s energy needs.”

Hancocks owner Joe Jakicevich adds, “The new Hancock’s facility included a massive roof area, so it made sense to be generating our own power. Not just as an economic saving, but more importantly, as something we do for the environment. It fits with other initiatives we have to support our community. It was a major project and we chose to take the step with Sunergise because of their expertise in large scale implementations.”

Hancocks is a 100% New Zealand family owned and operated business, established in 1859. A special, limited edition New Zealand sparkling wine helped mark the launch and part of the Sunergise 10 year anniversary celebrations.
