Solar Systems for Bowls Clubs

 

Australian Solar Power Consultants has become a Preferred Partner with Bowls Queensland.

This partnership is expected to be beneficial to Bowls Clubs as well as individual members of Bowls Clubs. These benefits can cover areas such as funding of solar systems, sponsorship of tournaments and promotion of bowls Clubs in regional areas. For more information on these aspects please use the Registration of Interest facility.

 

The Benefits for Bowls Clubs

 

By their nature Bowls Clubs can make greater use of Solar generated power than most householders and many businesses.

 

Our experience with Bowls Clubs shows that many of them will use the solar power produced on almost every day of the year. Even on the few days that the club is not open there is substantial power use, with refrigeration and cold rooms using substantial amounts of power.

 

A well designed solar system can mean that a club will use most, if not all, of the solar power produced and thereby make great savings on electricity costs. Savings can be used to replace incandescent lights with LED lights and this can usually halve the lighting portion of electricity costs. We can package a service whereby we install a solar system and change over lighting. While our funding program was designed initially to fund solar systems for clubs, we will also considerer including lighting changeover in the package.

 

Funding of Systems for Bowls Clubs

 

Australian Solar Power Consultants is in the financial position to to provide funds to install a solar system with a range of payment options. These can include using the GST refund as a deposit and deferred start payment options etc. We can be extremely flexible with payment terms and the interest rate charged is below commercial rates. There is naturally a limit to the amount of systems which can be funded on this basis each year, so fund systems on a first come first served basis.

 Our aim wherever possible, is to provide a system that saves more than the repayments, so that it is cash flow positive from commencement. For example if the payments on a system are say $5,000.00 pa we will endeavour to structure a solar system that saves the club more than $5,000,00 pa in electricity costs.

 We have access to other commercially available funds however with our own funds we can be more flexible with payment options.

 We have developed very sophisticated software which illustrates the potential savings and payments and cash flow.

 Sponsorships

 Australian Solar Power Consultants are committed to an ongoing sponsorship program where clubs and/or members install solar systems. This involves sponsorship of Tournaments when Clubs and or members purchase solar systems

 Executives of clubs can use the contact facility on our website to request further information.

 A large club could conceivably have Tournaments sponsored on an on-going basis. Even where a club already has a system installed they can participate in the sponsorship programme through members installing a system.

 

Regional Club Promotion

 ASPC are prepared to promote bowls clubs in your own regional area. Please register your clubs interest in this regard in order to obtain more information.

  Australian Solar Power Consultants will advertise, in the local paper, a function held at the local bowls club, to promote solar to local businesses and residents.

 This would bring people to the club and would give the club an opportunity to promote a bowls event, eg a Barefoot Bowls day.

 We would envisage doing this whenever we visit a club to provide a quote for the club and/or members.

 

Quality Components

 We aim to provide quality systems at a realistic price.

Australian Solar Power Consultants use only panels manufactured by Tier 1 companies and quality European made inverters with long warranties, eg 5-10 years. All our installers are qualified and accredited by the Clean Energy Council and the relevant authorities.

 Government Rebates

 The Federal Government administers rebates which reduce the installation costs of systems For example, at the present time the rebate on a 30kW system is worth around $24,000 while the rebate on a 10kw system is worth around $8,000. This is currently under review and for this reason clubs should not delay in applying to install a system.

 There is currently no feed in tariff paid by the Qld State Government. Certain electricity retailers provide a feed in tariff for power production that is not utilised by the consumer and fed into the grid. In areas serviced by Ergon there is a feed n tariff available in regard to systems up to 5kW in size.

In the south east corner of Queensland Energex approval must be obtained before installing a solar system. This can take up to 65 business days. We therefore recommend that all clubs apply for installation of a solar system as soon as possible. We can do this for clubs and there is no cost or obligation to proceed with installing a system. However a club cannot determine what size system they can install until such approval is given. In other areas Ergon or Powerlink is responsible for this role.

 Other areas of Power Saving

 Solar generated power is limited to saving on electricity costs during daylight hours. As part of our service we provide advice on power management and, power efficient lighting.
