We have obtained quotes from 4 suppliers for a 55 Kw system to be located on the clubhouse roof. The modelling undertaken estimates savings of $12,500 per annum will be achieved with a payback period between 4 and 4.6 years depending on the configuration of the system. We are in the process of finalising quotes so that this capital purchase can be included in our 2018 budget.
