We all know the issues and expense of electricity in and around Adelaide, as such we wanted to keep our dependency on these to a minimum wherever possible.
Our cellar has 60% of its walls underground, keeping it naturally insulated from the hot Adelaide summers. Based on an extra thick commercial concrete slab, put in by us this helps reduce our cooling requirements.
Our self storage business above helps with the whole of its roof covered in solar panels. Every little bit helps, so you utilise this to partially power our cellar cooling.
Double thick walls with polyfoam insulating further assist in reducing that South Australian heat and helps with keeping a consistent temperature year round.
