The first round of the Solar in Clubs Program is now complete with over 500kWs of clean energy facilitated. Both Blacktown Workers and Sports Club were part of this, pioneering the way in the Round 1 of the Program with a 100kW installation at each club. Between these two installations, Blacktown Workers and Sports Club should see just under 300,000kW hours being offset from electricity bills each year.

The tender for this project was managed by Solar Choice Commercial, which has assisted hundreds of businesses and other organisations across Australia to make an informed choice with regard to their solar PV installations, in conjunction with Clubs’ Sustainable Futures.

Round 2 of the Solar in Clubs Program has commenced and is nearing the Tender Phase. An opportunity exists for Clubs interested in installing a solar power system to be part of this. For more information please visit http://www.solarchoice.net.au/.

In October 2012 Blacktown Workers Club Limited engaged Sydney based Sustainable Energy Engineering firm Autonomous Energy to install large commercial scale Solar Power systems for both Workers Blacktown and Workers Sports. System sizes of 100kW will be installed at each club, combined these systems have been conservatively estimated to produce 279,538kWhs each year enough energy to power approximately 52 houses.

Blacktown Workers Club is a leader in sustainability having previously implemented a broad range of energy efficiency measures, the installation of these commercial scale Solar PV systems for onsite generation of 100% pollution free electricity underpins the next phase of the Club's transition to sustainable energy. Blacktown Workers Club Group is committed to a long term plan to become more energy efficient in all its operations and to pass all savings onto our members.

Blacktown Workers Club Group is and will continue to be one of the leaders in these areas in the Club Industry. For more information on solar power and the selected installation company please visit www.AutonomousEnergy.com
