The owners of Bendigo’s The Good Loaf Sourdough Bakery & Café regularly review the businesses energy practices. This factsheet details a number of changes made in the last few years, which included:

  • installing energy-efficient compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs)
  • a timer on the baking oven
  • zoning the bakery’s lighting 

These changes, and others detailed in this factsheet, have meant that despite the business growing 10% in recent years, energy costs have remained stable. A cost saving of $2000 per annum.
