The NSW Office of Environment & Heritage (OEH) and NSW Farmers Association (NSWFA) invite you to a free seminar series on renewables in agriculture and solar PV pumping, to be held at five regional locations across New South Wales over late May and early June.
The half-day seminars will give farmers state-wide the chance to learn more about the possibilities and practicalities of on-farm renewable energy from local case studies and industry experts.
Topics on the agenda include:
- on-farm renewables;
- regional climate impact projections;
- water and energy efficiency in irrigation;
- solar pumping for irrigation;
- how to select the most suitable supplier for your needs;
- the Australian Government Department of the Environment’s new Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF);
- NSW Agriculture, Local Land Services and OEH programs; and – crucially:
- how to get an excellent return on investment (ROI).
The seminar series will highlight practical information detailed in two new guides for farmers:
- solar-powered pumping in agriculture: A guide to system selection and design; and
- renewable energy in agriculture: A farmer’s guide to technology and feasibility.
Come along and find out how your farm business can benefit from clean energy technologies.
No need to pack sandwiches: lunch is included.
