Watts in your Business
Over the last 18 months, APAL has been conducting the “Watts in your Business” energy efficiency information program for growers and packers in the deciduous tree fruit industries. As part of this program they have developed a series of 5 factsheets and 9 case stories that describe how energy can be saved in packing sheds and on orchards. Many of the main energy sinks in the deciduous orchards / packing sheds will be the same as those found in other crops. They include irrigation, refrigeration, lighting, packing lines and tariffs.
APAL is making these fact sheets and case stories available to other industries. To access this information, please visit:
