Solar Project

Keen (bird’s) eyes might have observed some changes at the club. Stage 1 of the DBSC Solar Project was completed this week, with the western roof section (the 2012 extension) entirely covered in solar panels.We estimate that this size system should generate more than the club’s power needs, and make it a net supplier of green electricity to the grid and the local community.Future stages will eventually entail covering the entire roof with Solar, and we have reached an in principle agreement to supply that power to our friends, the A18s – helping to make all sailing activities in Double Bay powered by the same force that gets us around the marks, Mother Nature.The club would like to thank the NSW Government for their generous help towards this project. We would also like to thank the army of people within the club who have assisted in making this possible.Stay tuned
