Autonomous Energy donated a 1.5kW solar photovoltaic (PV) system to South Curl Curl Surf Life Saving Club. The solar PV system is connected to the electricity grid and the Surf Club will be paid 66 cents per kWh for every unit of electricity produced by the solar PV system, thanks to the NSW Solar Bonus Scheme. This means the Surf Club will receive approximately $1,700 per year for the energy it produces until 2017.

Autonomous Energy donated all the equipment, provided labour from their experience in-house installation team, and arranged the gross feed-in tariff metering and connection at no cost to the Surf Club. 

The system was officially opened by the Mayor of Warringah Council: Cr. Michael Regan on 11th March 2011. The NSW Treasurer Mike Baird was also in attendance at the exclusive launch event hosted by Autonomous Energy at the Club.  

Autonomous Energy solution

  • The solar PV system output will be one of the best performing systems in Sydney - due to the following factors:
  • Kyocera solar modules were installed, which have been independently tested and shown to perform better than any other solar PV module available (see www.dkasolarcentre.com.au)
  • Installation was by Autonomous Energy’s experienced in-house installation team comprising internationally experienced Solar PV Engineers, Licensed Electricians and Clean Energy Council Accredited Installers
  • The system features the most efficient inverter available in Australia as well as other premium quality system components
  • The Surf Club has a perfect north facing roof with no shading, so the system will be producing clean, green energy all day, every day
  • Autonomous Energy anticipates the system will generate 2,571kWh per year, saving 2,751 kg CO2-e per year
