Bathurst Golf Club

BELOW IS A WRITTEN TESTIMONIAL FROM BOB PARDEY (PICTURED LEFT) WHO WAS AN EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND DIFFICULT MAN TO IMPRESS. 

" Having spent 42 years working in the power industry, predominantly building, operating and maintaining power stations I was familiar with the process of selecting the best contractor to install a solar power system for the Bathurst Golf Club.

Right from the start I was impressed with Smart Commercial Solar’s up front approach. They were the only tenderer to study our electricity usage profile and design a system to specifically match the profile and thus maximise our return on investment.

They were also the only tenderer to guarantee the system output over a 5 year period with their on line monitoring system.

Their price using industry leading materials was very competitive.

The system maximum output was sized to match our normal daily maximum demand with no over demand output. The panel orientation took advantage of our roof profile to install the panels in a predominantly north and west facing array to provide a gradual power increase from mid morning through to late afternoon. Just what the golf club required.

As a past Power Station Construction Manager I was particularly impressed with the quality of the materials and the workmanship of the installation which was completed on program.

IT IS A LITTLE OVER 2 YEARS SINCE THE SYSTEM WAS COMMISSIONED AND IT CONTINUES TO PRODUCE TO EXPECTATION. WE ARE WELL ON TRACK TO ACHIEVING PAYBACK IN LESS THAN 4 YEARS.

Their communication throughout the installation period and subsequently, with regular reports on the system performance, has been excellent.

The on line monitoring system is impressive, giving up to the minute output and cumulative monthly and yearly yields. The phone app allows access anytime and anywhere.

I can confidently recommend Smart Commercial Solar. "
