Taking the heat out of rising cool store energy costs

For over 10 years, General Manager, Peter Radevski, has been at the forefront of energy efficiency and renewable energy innovation in his Goulburn Valley-based Radevski Coolstores. Despite large electricity price increases over the last decade, Peter has managed to keep his power bills at an equivalent price to what he was paying seven years ago. Peter’s cool store and energy upgrades have enabled him to reduce his maximum energy network demand and build resilience to potential energy price hikes. This has enabled him to grow his cool store business whilst improving the businesses’ carbon footprint.

As well as sourcing better energy deals, the Radevski business has sourced grants and energy programs to assist with the cost of various initiatives including upgrades to their refrigeration system and installation of solar panels and variable speed drives.
