Quality over quantity – Day Quality Meats embodies the Australian underdog business that most energy retailers have forgotten. Upstream endeavours to provide clean energy solutions for the biggest – and the smallest businesses; we worked hard with their proprietor to utilise as much roof space as possible.
One of only two butchers in the hungry South Australian town of Clare, Day Quality Meats has served up choice cuts to at least half of the 3,500 residents since 1996.
As an energy user, their profile is easily predicted and consistent. Their requirement for heavy duty cold storage kept their load static – even when closed over the weekend. Upstream sized their solar to suit, and was able to cut their daytime energy cost by 26% and save them $1,600 in year one.
