Noticing considerable increases in power charges, the club investigated operational improvements to reduce electrical load consumption via lighting and air conditioning project initiatives.
Later, it was decided to look at generating their own power with solar to offset as much cost as possible.
With forecast savings of $120,000 over the first 5 years and delivering a payback in approx. 4.5 years, it was clear to the club board that going solar was a sound decision. Better still, because they opted to finance the project with Westpac / Verdia, the club was cash positive from day one.
Solahart Sydney designed and specified a panel-level optimised solar system to further improve the rate of return and system efficiencies.
