Our detailed business case analysis demonstrated the positive financial impact the project could make to Cockburn Ice Arena.
The competitive tender went to 4 highly competent installers in the area ensuring our client got the best price and ensuring the solution matched their needs.
The project went ahead in 2015 to install a 100kW Solar PV array and was also designed to capitalise on government subsidies available through the generation of Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs), which remain as an incentive for small to medium businesses.
With the Arena being located in a warm climate and having to use energy intensive equipment to keep the rink operational, electricity bills are a substantial part of the Arena’s operating costs. As such, the company has been able to utilise solar to offset this usage.
Solar Choice continues to work with the energy-intensive Club’s & Arena’s as the importance of exploring sustainable ways to reduce energy costs is increasing.
