The IGA franchise was introduced in Australia in 1988 when ten stores officially became members of the Independent Grocers Alliance.
The retail franchise has moved from strength to strength since then and currently operates over 1000 IGA stores all over Australia.
Becker’s IGA, at Auburn, is one such IGA franchise, and recently commissioned Class A Energy Solutions to assist them in exploring the financial and environmental advantages of going solar.
The installation of a 30kW solar system has not only helped IGA Auburn to lessen their carbon footprint but has also given them a 25% return on investment… that’s better than money in the bank!
This investment has proven to be cash flow positive from day one.
Not only is IGA championing the community, but they are doing their bit to champion the environment as well.
I’m proud to be an independent retailer, supporting my local community.
My IGA store strives to deliver a shopping experience that my local community value, which is to shop locally and conveniently with great customer service, whilst supporting local suppliers and brands, offering far more benefits than just competitive prices.
