Podcast: Economics of implementing energy technology with Tony McCarthy and Julie Harman

Do you enjoy listening to podcasts? Then we have some good news for you, season five of “AgVic Talk” is now live and includes episodes on energy!

This season of ‘AgVic Talk’ highlights personal stories of people who have overcome on-farm energy challenges. You’ll hear from a diverse range of people, about how they identify opportunities, modernise, adapt and grow their farm business both now and into the future.

In our fourth energy focussed episode of the series we hear from dairy farmer Tony McCarthy and Julie Harman who is a Farm Business Economist with Agriculture Victoria.

Tony arrived in Australia with just a backpack and has since been focusing on building up his business from scratch of which energy management has and is an important part. An energy audit undertaken through the Agriculture Energy Investment Plan (AEIP) was a big leg up for Tony in identifying energy savings. Julie has been involved in working with farmers who have also gone down the path of getting an audit and grants through AEIP, looking at their successes and gains.
