Carbon Footprint at the site will be reduced by an estimated 52% year on year thus helping Fitzgerald Nurseries to meet the National Energy Efficiency Plan (NEEP 2020) guidelines which require a reduction of 20% in energy usage by 2020.
Primary Energy usage at the site will be reduced by an estimated 42.5% year on year.
Projected Savings in energy costs shows a system payback of circa 4.5 years. This does not take into account the savings made by reduced maintenance costs due to the installation of new plant. It also does not take into account the potential future increase in savings caused by a rise in inflation, the need to replace old plant or the cost of energy.
