AUSVEG Our New Strategic Partners

Aren’t vegetables just the greatest? Nutritious, natural and oh so delicious – we’re especially fans of the ones grown right here in Australia by our hard working farmers.

For these reasons and more, it’s our pleasure to announce our new strategic partnership with AUSVEG, Australia’s peak industry body representing Aussie vegie and potato growers – around 9,000 of them in fact!

AUSVEG is committed to ensuring a green and leafy future for their members – and naturally they’ve recognised the opportunity for growers to use renewable energy as a means to cut costs and boost profit.

As strategic partners, it’s our goal to provide advice and support to growers who are interested in harnessing solar energy. We’ll be there to provide AUSVEG members with solutions to curb their energy costs and will attend organisational events such as their national conference in June.

In Western Australia alone we’ve already installed over a MW of solar power products for fruit and vegetable growers, so we’re definitely up for the job.

Harvesting produce is an incredibly energy-intensive process, with electricity costs amongst the highest overheads for Australian growers. Installing smart solar power as well as other strategic energy-saving products and techniques can produce amazing results for farmers. Check out some of our case studies to see the numbers for yourself.

Moving forward we can’t wait to meet more of the people who work tirelessly to feed our country and to assist them in strengthening their businesses.

We don’t know about you, but even Brussels sprouts will taste amazing knowing that clean energy from the sun is helping to get them to our plates.
