Recent losses of power supply due to cyclone Gita left many local businesses, especially farmers, in a difficult place.

With no backup generator, some farmers had to desperately find ways to milk their unhappy cows. Too many businesses around the region were left scrambling to hire a generator only to find that they were in short supply.

For farmers with sheds to run and cows to milk, it is truly a crisis you don’t want to be faced with. Not only was milking put under the pump, milk storage became an issue with some farmers choosing to dump milk with no way to keep it cold. Literally money down the drain.

Not only farmers faced these challenges but other food industries that require strict temperature control. At Pace Power and Air, we were able to assist many local businesses with the supply of generators in their time of need. With a wide range to suit every need, you know you can avoid the heartbreak of pouring your milk and your money down the drain.
