Summary

Teaching 15,000 students to swim every week comes with several overheads, electricity being one of them with the use of energy intense heated pools.

With ever increasing energy consumption across their six sites in Perth, WA, State Swim were determined to find a way to reduce their energy costs across their multiple commercial sites and investigate the savings that could be made for their business by installing solar.

After receiving full transparency on the suitability of their centres by going solar - plus the long standing relationship that already existed, Synergy SolarReturn was chosen to deliver State Swim’s solar solution at four of their centres across Perth.

Project Challenges

  • Six sites were quoted for installation however structural integrity assessments it was discovered both sites had insufficient capacity to take the weight of the solar panels. Upgrades would be cost prohibitive and Synergy advised against the install for the two sites affected.
  • Many of the sites were surrounded by trees reducing optimum panel performance. This was optimised through clever design and premium panel selection. 
  • Minimal disruption to the public and swimming classes across the four sites was paramount.

 

Testimonial

“We already had a really good relationship with Synergy and after they advised that two of our centres would be unsuitable, it just reconfirmed the relationship we have and that we’d made the right to decision to go with them.” 
– Ben Robertson, State Swim Chief Operating Officer
