This month we sit down with Ben Clark from Kuranga Native Nursery to hear about his journey with solar.
Q. What was the business's motivation about making the switch to solar?
Essentially, we wanted to do something with solar and the timing was right.
We had two motivations - commercially, we were experiencing rIsing energy costs. When we looked at solar all the numbers checked out, which was important to us. We are already seeing sufficient savings which is great.
Philosophically it suited out business to move to greener energy. We are ethically driven and being less reliant on coal sits well with us.
Q. What made you decide to work with Choice Energy?
After having a look around, we saw that Choice Energy had worked with similar businesses and their capacity was good. They therefore seemed like a good fit for our size business.
They had worked with smaller ag and manufacturing businesses and we thought if they was good enough for other likeminded businesses, then they were good enough for us too!
