Take Part in Electricity Tariff Trial
Cotton growers and irrigators are being encouraged to participate in an electricity tariff trial being conducted by the Queensland Government, in conjunction with Ergon Energy and industry organisations such as Cotton Australia.
Detailed information on the trial can be found at - http://cottonaustralia.com.au/news/article/potential-for-growers-to-save-electricity-tariff-trial.
Trial Group 3 entitles you to the installation of a digital electricity meter, which records and stores very detailed information on your electricity use profile. This information will allow you to make a better informed choice as to which is the best tariff for your business operation.
If the trial is under-subscribed, it may send a message to the Queensland Government that electricity tariffs and pricing is not the key issue that they have been told it is.
Irrigators are also urged to consider the two other trial options (outlined in the link above) as they may offer real benefits to your business.
If you have multiple metering sites, you can apply for inclusion at one or more of them.
