Gilmac Pty Ltd is the premier exporter of Australian hay and straw to the dairy and beef industries and currently accounts for more than one quarter of Australian hay and straw exports. Having already realised the savings and environmental benefits of their existing Infinite Energy 30kW ground mount solar installation, Gilmac commissioned Infinite Energy to install an additional 100kW rooftop solar system to their York hay press site.
This system will provide further relief to their daytime power requirements and assist in reducing their ongoing energy costs. The solar systems will ensure a large proportion of their energy costs are insulated from future price increases thereby ensuring the future prosperity and growth of the business.
