Case Study - Lildale Business Sousvide Reaping the Benefits of Solar

“eko energy were attentive to our needs and concerns…
even over the winter period we have seen a great return
on our investment and will look to eko energy when we
are ready to add batteries to each system.”

– Dale and Libby Prentice, Sousvide

Sousvide is a family owned and run business by Dale and Libby Prentice based in Lilydale, Victoria. They supply the highest quality, Australian standard approved and specifically designed sous vide cookery equipment from around the world, and also run a cooking school teaching talented locals. 

Sousvide were looking for a trusted solar installer with quality products to increase savings on their electricity bills while reducing their carbon footprint. Dale and Libby heard about the Solar Savers program through Healesville CoRE, a local environmental group who informed them about the partnership between Yarra Ranges Council, Solar Savers, and trusted installer eko energy. This council-backed partnership gave them the confidence to invest in solar for their business. 

Sousvide is now a proud owner of a 15.21kW solar PV system with QCELL panels and a Fronius inverter that is saving them $65,944 in lifetime savings, generating 21,170 kWh output in the first year and mitigating 22 tonnes CO2 annually. 

Another way to reduce your bills is to become more energy efficient. Our partners at Energy Savers provide free advice about energy efficiency upgrades, available subsidies and can connect you with accredited and trusted suppliers.
