Summary

Vibe Baldivis Lifestyle Village is owned and managed by National Lifestyle Villages. Located around 47km south of Perth, the village is home to residents who live independently in a range of housing options.

Residents at Vibe Baldivis use a clubhouse, arts centre, workshop, lawn bowls green, pool and a range of other facilities. Social events, classes and activities are also hosted within these facilities at various times of day and night, across all months of the year. 
The village requires a significant amount of electricity to operate the outdoor pool, along with facilities, equipment and air-conditioning in the shared community areas.

When National Lifestyle Villages management was looking for ways to be more sustainable and help save on their overhead costs across several locations, they turned to Synergy for a commercial SolarReturn system.

In April 2019, a 47-panel system was installed on the clubhouse rooftop, with 41 solar panels installed at the bowling green, as part of the village’s overall SolarReturn solution. Based on the way this village has used electricity in the past, village management could see potential savings of around $7,000 per year thanks to solar power.#

Project Challenges

There were two solar installation locations to manage within Vibe Baldivis, so the installation needed to be planned carefully. It was important to manage the installation team’s lay-out area and planned power outage with the safety of everyone in mind, while also keeping any disruptions to village activities to a minimum.

 

Testimonial

"In the end we chose Synergy because of the insight you had on our existing usage patterns, as well the security the Synergy brand brings with it. Given your relationship with Western Power and the fact you are both the energy retailer and solar supplier, the process was much more seamless than compared to when we have used 3rd party installers previously. Additionally, we wanted to make sure that the products long warranty periods could actually be serviced and given Synergy is the state owned utility we were comfortable that unlike other solar suppliers, Synergy would be around in the future to help if need be."
-Andrew Watkins, National Lifestyle Villages Development Manager.
