The Falls Festival is a three-day music festival held across Australia. Organisers of the Tasmanian event, at Marion Bay, were interested in reducing its fossil fuels consumption, and the savings that come with that. Assessments showed the primary opportunity to save came with selecting the right sized generators: there are 26 generators on site and changed practices were able to cut 90 running hours of usage by powering them down at appropriate times, and by choosing the right generator for the job throughout the festival.
