OUR FARM STORY
The driving force behind the decision to go solar, was that energy was our highest operating cost on the farm. We were spending over $300,000 each year to run groundwater irrigation bores used to water our summer crops.
We engaged ReAqua, for installation as they were the only company who had expertise in both pumping and solar. The 500kW solar diesel hybrid pump was launched in 2018 to much media and community interest. It is on target for the system to be paid back in five years.
The environmental benefits are something we're proud of, with 500 tonnes of CO2 no longer entering the atmosphere each year.
