After years of hard work and dedication by the Earthworker team in Morwell, we are thrilled to announce that Gippsland Solar are now offering their stainless steel storage tanks with our new Reclaim heat pump.
It was an heartwarming trip to the Earthworker factory this week, seeing their dream of a Latrobe Valley manufacturing facility become a reality.
Our new solar heat pump is a game changer for solar power customers. With guaranteed performance down to minus 10 degrees, and smart technology to use excess solar power, this heat pump is the result of years of development between Gippsland Solar and our Japanese manufacturers.
Now we can also couple the heat pump with a locally manufactured stainless steel storage tank (with a 15 year warranty), for approx. $600 more than a glass lined tank.
Gippsland Solar now employ over 70 full-time staff, and nearly 100 including sub-contractors. The next phase of our business plan is to reassess our procurement across the board, and identify more local supply chains to create jobs in the valley and wider Gippsland.
We may have expanded well beyond the Latrobe Valley and Gippsland recently, but creating jobs for the local region during this transition is very close to our heart.

Congrats to Dan Musil, the Earthworker team, and their canine mascot Jade. You have created a tremendous opportunity for the Latrobe Valley, they legacy of which will be felt for many decades to come.
