Why are businesses harnessing the sun to hatch a cleaner future? For the last couple of years, Australian farmers are looking for sustainable ways to grow food and raise their animals. Renewable energy is helping them produce more but in a better way with less pollution and less cost.

* Australia’s biggest free-range chicken meat farm installed a massive solar and battery system worth AU$5 million. The Riverland Free Range poultry complex has installed rooftop solar and energy storage, powered by five Tesla lithium-ion batteries. A Brisbane-based agricultural investment and management outfit AAM Investment Group own the farm. Such sustainable models are a need of an hour and need to be implemented across all areas of agriculture.

* Is there a bright clean future? Looking at the trend in the sector, it seems that agri businesses in the country will continue to embrace renewable energy measures in the coming future. There is indeed a growing recognition among the community to enrich the soil, water, and biodiversity, and what better way than through renewable energy.
