Specialty Feeds(40kW)

Specialty Feeds was founded in the 1980s as Glen Forrest Stockfeeders to manufacture quality feed for farm and domestic animals. The company still supplies quality stockfeed for the local market but it has now evolved into a highly specialised provider which designs and supplies customised diets for research animals such as laboratory mice and rats as well as native animals and farm animals for agricultural research for the domestic and international markets.

Specialty Feeds has been looking for ways to reduce its energy costs as well as its environmental footprint and chose Infinite Energy to design, install and commission a high quality 40kW solar PV system with grid consumption, self-generated consumption and exported generation monitoring.
