The expanded Energy Savers Plus program will include an additional 200 energy audits for agricultural customers and offer a 50% co-contribution (capped at $20,000) towards the cost of implementing changes recommended through the audits.
Energy Savers is a useful tool to help farmers proactively dampen the impact of the massive price rises we have seen, but it does not completely solve the broader issues of electricity affordability – we have to keep working at the other areas too
To date 60% of the 130 farms participating in the Energy Savers program have or plan to implement part of the $3 million of annual energy cost savings identified in the energy efficiency audits across different industries. This includes 50 farms implementing energy efficiency projects and another 32 that are planning to in the future.
