Embracing Solar Power at our Christchurch Facility: A Sustainable Future for Storage Companies

Solar Power at BoxSafe

In an era where climate change has become an urgent global concern, businesses are increasingly recognising the need for sustainable practices. BoxSafe in Christchurch has fully embraced renewable energy, I am excited to share how we are shaping the future of sustainable businesses. Our decision to run our storage facility using solar power not only aligns with our commitment to the environment but will hopefully set an example for others in the industry.

Gone are the days when solar power was considered an alternative energy source. With advancements in technology and a greater emphasis on renewable energy, solar power has become a viable and cost-effective solution for businesses of all sizes. At our container storage facility, we have installed a state-of-the-art solar panel system that allows us to generate clean and sustainable energy.

Reducing Carbon Footprint

By relying solely on solar power, we have eliminated our dependence on fossil fuels and significantly reduced our carbon footprint. The transition to solar energy has enabled us to avoid the emission of tons of CO2 into the atmosphere each year. As a result, we are actively contributing to the fight against climate change and fostering a healthier planet for future generations.

Sustainable Storage Solutions

Our commitment to sustainability doesn’t stop at solar power. We have also implemented a range of eco-friendly practices within our storage facility. For instance, we use solar powered flood lighting throughout the facility, reducing our energy consumption while maintaining excellent visibility. Additionally, we have implemented a comprehensive recycling program, ensuring that materials such as cardboard, plastic, and metal are properly recycled rather than ending up in landfills.

Economic Advantages

Going solar not only benefits the environment but also brings significant economic advantages. By harnessing the power of the sun, we have reduced our energy costs considerably. As a result, we can allocate more resources to enhancing our storage services and providing competitive pricing options to our customers.

The Future of Sustainable Businesses

The transition to renewable energy sources, such as solar power, marks a pivotal moment in the evolution of sustainable businesses. As the global community recognises the urgency of combating climate change, consumers are increasingly demanding eco-friendly alternatives. By embracing solar power, container storage companies, and other industries alike can showcase their commitment to sustainability while reaping the economic benefits.


Our decision to rely on clean energy sources has allowed us to reduce our carbon footprint, engage with the community, and will hopefully inspire others in our industry to follow suit.
