Located in the foothills of Mt Mothar, Queensland the Elgin Nut Farm (the Farm) processing factory is surrounded by macadamia orchards. During harvesting season, the energy consumption rises significantly to drive the machines that dehusk the macadamia nuts.

Despite the seasonal operations of the Farm, GoZERO engineering analysis demonstrated significant savings benefits from the installation of a 30 kW solar photovoltaic (PV) system. GoZERO forecasts a reduction in the Farm’s electricity costs by half in the first year alone. With an expected life of over 20 years, the solar system will provide many more years of savings on electricity costs.

The Solar PV system was a natural choice for the environmentally conscious Farm operators. By swapping from fossil-fired electricity to sun powered electricity the farmer will reduce his CO2 emissions by 42 tonnes per year.

Peace of mind that the system is performing as expected is provided by a combination of GoZERO best industry practices and ongoing support: engineered design, CEC accredited installation, Tier 1 PV panels and GoZERO guarantees on top of any manufacturer guarantees.
