Cotton Australia and New South Wales Irrigators Council Launch Energy Efficiency Pilot Project
July 25, 2014
As part of a strategy to reduce energy use in Australia’s irrigation sector, Cotton Australia in collaboration with the NSW Irrigators Council (NSWIC) have engaged with the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) to set up an Energy Efficiency Pilot Project.
The pilot will consist of 7 to 10 subsidised on-farm energy efficiency audits and the development of specific business cases that will detail potential energy efficiency opportunities on-farm. These case studies will then be used to inform irrigators of how changes in on-farm energy management could reduce their electricity costs.
