Revenue from the carbon price will help Adelaide’s largest ice manufacturer, Adelaide Ice Services, to reduce energy costs by up to $20,000 a year.
 
The company had been awarded a grant of almost $90,000 from the carbon price funded Clean Technology Food and Foundries Program to install a 87.5Kw photovoltaic solar system at its ice manufacturing plant in Regency Park.
 
Industry and Innovation Minister Greg Combet said: “The Gillard Government is committed to a strong manufacturing industry and we are working with the sector to find ways to improve production processes and reduce emissions.”
 
“Labor has committed a billion dollars through the Clean Technology Investment Programs to work with industry to help reduce energy costs, reduce emissions and improve competitiveness.”
 
The Clean Technology Investment Programs complements the Government’s $1 billion Plan for Australian Jobs designed to assist the manufacturing sector deal with the challenges of a high Australian dollar and increased competition from overseas.
