MERIMBULA NSW: Todae Solar announced the completion of a 94.75kW grid-connect solar power system on the roof of Club Sapphire in Merimbula, NSW. The installation was commissioned as part of the Solar in Clubs program through Clubs' Sustainable Futures and Solar Choice, servicing the NSW Club industry.
Todae Solar was awarded the project through a competitive tender managed by Solar Choice. The system is comprised of 379 Suntech 250w modules with 5 SMA Tripower inverters and has an expected output of 124,593kWh per year.
"Todae Solar provided an excellent service in managing the entire project from their outstanding tender document through to installation and they have continued to provide an excellent service after the installation," said Club Sapphire CEO Damien Foley.
According to output data since inception, the solar system has been performing above expectations.
"The system has only been on the roof for a short period, but we are already seeing the benefits both in the reduction in energy usage but also the fantastic response we have had from our members and the wider community to the initiative."
The system is expected to not only generate significant energy savings for Club Sapphire but also have a large impact on the carbon footprint of the club. The system is expected to reduce carbon emissions by approximately 165 tonnes of CO2 annually (the equivalent of 68 small cars off the road). The installation was completed in 4 weeks according to design and specification.
Mr Foley advised of their decision to choose Todae Solar - “we are proud of our partnership with Todae Solar and look forward to the many years of financial and environmental benefits from the system.”
