Established in 1981 in Melbourne, Australia by the de Fries family, the company was founded as a medical manufacturing business. In 2015 Defries opened their new Head Office in Dandenong South and a new state-of-the-art cleanroom, which more than doubled their former manufacturing and processing capacity.
With considerable energy costs, Defries engaged Upstream to design, fund and commission a 100kW solar system on a low cost, fixed price consumption PPA.
The result was an immediate 54% reduction in their energy spend - an incredible result considering Defries had zero capital outlay, no maintenance requirements and will take ownership of the asset in a few years.
Upstream considers this to be an excellent example of just how well we can produce immediate energy savings from on-site clean generation - your own private power stations, built to specification.
