Located 105km east of Adelaide where the mighty Murray River meets lake Alexandrina is the Wellington Hotel. Licensed in 1848 the Welly (as it is affectionately known) is one of the oldest working hotels in South Australia.
The owners of the Wellington Hotel were 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 Wellington Hotel, who were keen to do their bit to not only help their hip pocket, but the environment as well.
