Bayview Golf Club Secures Government Funding for Solar Panels
The Bayview Golf Club has secured $140,372 from the Australian Government for the installation of solar panels. Construction of these panels has since been completed. Mackellar MP, Jason Falinski has said he is proud to support such initiatives that are helping to reduce our global emissions.
“The Club will now become a Northern Beaches leader for renewable energy. The solar panels will not only reduce the clubs power bills but will contribute to the government’s commitment to ensuring a more sustainable future.” Mr Falinski said.
The grant was awarded earlier in the year under the Sports Australia – community sports infrastructure grant programme.
“It is great to see organisations like the Bayview golf club, taking the initiative to contribute to a more sustainable future.”
“While the environmental effects of this project are positive, the grant will also allow the club to spend less on its power bills and more towards increasing participation in the sport of golf.”
“The Bayview Golf Club has a number of courses that encourage people of all ages and walks of life to get involved in golf. Not only is it an enjoyable game, but it is a great way to socialise and meet new people. The savings the club will make in power bills will be directly invested back into the game of golf and to provide more courses for their membership.”
The total cost of the project is $154,051.30. The Australian Government will provide $140,372 and the golf club will fund the remaining amount.
