Hello everyone and a Happy New Year, we hope you were able to take some time away from the industry for a few days?! But like us, that is probably now a distant memory.
We are looking forward to another busy year in 2023. Work has commenced on the Junee Solar Farm with our friends from Constructive Energy and we’re completing the final stages of installation of cabling and inverter units at the Wathagar Project (Moree NSW).
Around 18 months ago we made the decision we would move to EVs as soon as practically possible and while a hybrid is not 100% where we’d like to be, it presents a logical first step in our transition away from internal combustion engines (ICE).
The next step will be to start to replace all our onsite equipment with their EV equivalents while we eagerly await a ute that gives us enough range and towing power (we think the Ford F150 lightning, when it finally arrives down under, might be a real game changer).
We wonder what the capability of vehicles that Max (son of Business Development Lead Ed pictured) and his generation might be driving by the time he’s our age.
– Ed, Business Development Lead
