This case study highlights the outcomes of energy audits on two Poultry farms taking part in the Energy Savers Program.
An energy audit showed how improving the current systems can lead to energy and cost savings. The recommendations explored in the audit included change the current electricity tariff and install a solar PV system.
An energy audit showed how improving the current systems can lead to energy and cost savings. The recommendations explored in the audit included replace ventilation fans and install a solar PV system.
This case study summarises the outcomes from an audit conducted on a poultry farm with an energy consumption of 387,000 kWh at an annual cost of $85,000. Energy savings from the solar PV solution implemented have been estimated to be 32% and cost savings around 14%.
This case study summarises the outcomes from audits conducted on all 180 Queensland farms in the Energy Savers Plus Program (ESPPE).
A North Queensland poultry farm processing 2500 birds per annum could benefit from a recent energy savers audit. Considering goals of the farmer, the audit recommendations considered the expected three-fold increase in production while minimising energy consumption and costs onsite.
A South East Queensland chicken meat farm with eight sheds found an energy audit to provide helpful guidance about where to spend their capital investment on the farm.
