Join the farmers that are already saving on their energy costs.
The Queensland Government has today invited farmers to apply for an audit in the extended energy savers program with up to 200 more energy audits to be conducted over the next 3 years, and up to $20,000 in matched funding to implement energy conservation measures from the audits.
The new phase of the program was launched at Austchilli in Bundaberg who have implemented some of the findings from their energy audits.
Austchilli General Manager Ian Gaffel said that, thanks to the Energy Savers program the facility has been able to reduce their power usage per kilogram of product out the door, in both their farming and manufacturing operations while substantially growing the business.
“I would encourage every Queensland primary producer to check their electricity usage and take advantage of the Energy Savers Program right now.”
QFF President Stuart Armitage said this extended program will see farmers throughout the state continue to benefit from this opportunity, as the sector grapples with the impact of electricity price increases.
“I encourage Queensland farmers to jump on the QFF website and check out the case studies that detail examples of the innovative practices previous participants have implemented based on audit findings to save energy and cut their power bills.”
Applications close 29 May 2018. Find out more or apply HERE.
