At Goldfields Revegetation, a specialised plant nursery in Victoria’s Mandurang, the owners had a goal of reducing the company’s energy consumption by 30%. An energy assessment proved up to 70% savings were possible, and would save the company $6000 per annum. Reductions came from: replacing 50W halogens with energy efficient 35W halogens; installing motion sensors on external flood lights; fitting a timer to the electric hot water system; installing 1.6kW solar PV system; and numerous behaviour changes.
