Powering Cold Room Equipment & a Smoke House
Steve & Stacey Young’s award-winning Noosa Meat Centre has been located on Eumundi-Noosa Road in Noosaville since 2014 and operates 5.5 days per week.
KEY DRIVER FOR INSTALLING SOLAR
At their business premises, Steve and Stacey Young (business owners) found that the business operations were regularly tripping the mains power supply, especially when the smoker ovens were fired up. The business has three smoker ovens, several cold rooms, freezers, window display units and freeze pack cabinets all requiring power. The issue of losing power posed a major risk to the business interrupting retail service to the public and shutting down all equipment. By installing solar and an energy management solution, the business has resolved the power supply issue by reducing demand on the power grid while also avoiding the cost of upgrading the Energex transformer. The installation of the solar system has also resulted in a reduction in electricity costs.
