When 2 Victorian fruit packing houses (Geoff Thompson’s and Montague’s) conducted energy audits, each found there was high potential for energy savings through the optimisation of voltage power. While the initial investment was between $125,000-285,000, the savings were significant ($54,000-$58,000 a year), and the payback period short – just 2.2 to 5.2 years.
