Huon Valley Golf Club has recently installed a 17 kw solar system consisting of 58 Trina 300w panels. The system was designed and installed by Kingston company Powercom. The project was funded with a portion of a $55,000 grant received from the State Government in June. The balance of the grant moneys will be utilised to build a new machinary shed and upgrades to the Clubhouse. It is estimated that the solar system will save the club $3,000 to $4000 a year in electricity costs.
