The EnergySQ program will help you understand and identify ways to reduce your on-farm energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. To do this, we will work with you to:
- Gather and collate your energy bills (electricity and fuels) to determine your energy related emissions.
- Complete a walk-through assessment to look for energy and greenhouse savings opportunities.
- Identify emissions from your other on-farm operations.
- Provide you with an Energy and Carbon Action Plan
Who can participate?
Any farm located in the Southern Downs, Western Downs, Toowoomba and Goondiwindi Regional Council areas.
How much does it cost?
The program is free for participating farms.
What can I expect?
QFF will work with you to review your energy consumption and farm operations to understand your current energy use profile. Once we have an understanding of your consumption and farm operations, we will work with you to develop an Energy and Carbon Action Plan identifying tangible ways to reduce your energy consumption and to lower your carbon emissions.
How can I participate?
There are two ways for farms to participate: as an individual or in a ‘cluster’ of farms in your local area.
1. Individual Farms
A ‘cluster’ is where a group of farms work their way through the program as a collective. As a collective group, we will take you through the program and run a series of short workshops to help you navigate the process. This provides a great way for you to share your experiences with your peers which will hopefully see you get more out of the program.
