At McIvor Road Vet Clinic in Victoria, an increase in demand for its services led to installation of new equipment. Energy bills went ‘through the roof’, and service demands meant switching equipment off was not an option. Instead, the Clinic installed additional insulation and a 10kW solar PV system, switched from halogen to LEDs, and installed a solar boosted, gas hot water system. The result? Within twelve months, the Clinic’s energy use has been cut by 50 per cent, saving $5000 per annum.
