Maurie Haines of BRIG presents Chris Curtis with his Energy Savers Audit.
The Bundaberg Regional Irrigators Group (BRIG) have delivered the first audit of the new Energy Savers program to one of their growers, Chris Curtis.
Chris is keen to go ahead and implement the findings of the audit which include LED shed lighting a tariff change, a switchboard upgrade to accommodate new power meters and a Solar PV system.
Chris has already submitted his application to QRIDA to claim the implementation rebate.
The project will give the farm energy savings of over 30,000kWh per annum with cost savings of around $8,800, giving a combined payback period of less than three years.
There are currently over 60 Audits underway.
