Port Augusta continues to be one of the best places to install a solar PV system offering the best returns on investment and shortest payback periods available only to Port Augusta residents. Conveniently located on the Eyre highway, The Augusta Courtyard Motel was keen to moderate their energy costs and engaged the specialist team at Class A Energy Solutions to design and install a 30kW solar system to help combat their escalating power usage. This resulted in the design and installation of a 120-panel rooftop solar system that will save, on average, 45,990kWh per year. This equates to the removal of 14 cars from the road each year or the planting of 3,300 trees.
The savings, both economical and environmental, were appealing to the owners of the Augusta Courtyard Motel, who were keen to do their bit to not only help their hip pocket, but the environment as well.
