Coffs Harbour Golf Club

Si Clean Energy are pleased announce another addition to their Retail Department Commercial Portfolio with the recent completion of a 65kW PV system for Coffs Harbour Golf Club.

This particular project was about the design; installation and monitoring required to provide a system that would fit the clubs complete requirement, providing an efficient operational system for many years to come.

The project was completed in 3 weeks with a total of 260 panels, three 20kW and one 12.5kW ABB  inverters installed and operational from November 2014.

As part of this installation we supplied and installed one of our proprietary manufactured “All Solus” energy monitoring systems. This allows the club to record and display the solar system’s performance on a daily, weekly and monthly basis, offering the complete solar solution with maximum efficiency guaranteed through constant monitoring.

The club’s general manager Paul McAra said the decision to install the panels was made after the presentation of a business case which showed solar power was a great way to save money.

“We’ll get the pay back in four or five years,” conservatively estimating savings of  around $20,000 every year on power bills.
“The system took three weeks to install, and there was no down time during the process. The guys were on the roof working, and there was no disruption to trade, I’d encourage others to do it.”

Si Clean Energy always take great pride in our workmanship, none more so than with this innovative 65kW system right here in our local town and we appreciate very much to have been given the opportunity to contribute to the clubs long term energy strategy.
