Make use of so­lar

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

RE: POWER prices hurt­ing farm­ers. Do they re­ally care or do they just like to com­plain? On March 27, I wrote to Bund­aberg Canegrowers of­fer­ing the ben­e­fit of my 28 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in the pump and ir­ri­ga­tion in­dus­try and six years so­lar pump­ing in a con­sul­tancy ca­pac­ity at ab­so­lute no gain or ben­e­fit to my­self. I out­lined the in­stal­la­tion of a sys­tem that would op­er­ate a trav­el­ling ir­ri­ga­tor at a cost of less than what it cur­rently costs to run a nor­mal pump for 12 months. The so­lar com­po­nent of the sys­tem was mov­able so the power sup­ply could be moved from one wa­ter source to an­other with pumps per­ma­nent at each. They didn’t even have the de­cency to re­spond to my mail. It is just too easy to turn on a switch and com­plain about what it costs. Mal­colm Tay­lor Gin Gin
