Jim Woods, owner of Ulysses Fruit Pty Ltd, was concerned at the cost of his electricity. Constant price increases were making it difficult to get ahead. He thought solar would be too expensive, but was pleasantly surprised at the options and finance available.

Fruit farm solar needs can be different to other farms. We look at the timing and costs of irrigation, cold rooms and packing shed lighting. At Ulysses Fruit, we installed a 30 kW system in late 2015. Since then, quarterly electricity charges vary from a quarter to a half to what they were back in 2014-15.

I’m a small time fruit grower struggling to pay my bills and the cost of electricity was getting out of hand at over $16,000 per year and rising. I was always under the impression that Solar Power would be too expensive … Rollo stood out in that he went further than just looking at my power bills. He delved into my farming operations and went on to explain how Solar could save me money especially with irrigation … Rollo and his team installed a 30 kW system in late 2015 without any dramas and I have since been pleasantly surprised with the savings in my power bills despite the increased rises in tariffs by the power company. My quarterly charges now vary from a quarter to a half to what they were back in 2014-15 and as prices continue to hike my somewhat significant investment becomes even more valuable.
