In this indoor sports centre of Morphett Vale, up and coming cricket stars have long been wary of the umpire’s raised Onkaparinga. But that’s not all that’s on the way up – the south Adelaide region has been hit as hard as any by inflating grid electricity prices, with their kWh rates among the highest in the country.
Upstream managed to future-proof their daytime energy consumption by designing a system to provide 58% of their annual usage. We discounted their grid rate by 36% and locked it in for 10 years. No increases – ever.
Action Indoor Sports had a usage pattern that presented challenges for solar. Their weekly daytime load was minor, yet peaked in the evening during sport times. Upstream countered this with a well-sized system that could retro-fit battery storage at a later date.
Action Indoor Sports will save $5,500 in the first year, growing to $96k over the 10-year term and $633k over the life of the asset.
