The Costs of Solar Panels for Sports Facilities

When deciding on how many solar panels you need, it’s important to look at your current energy needs as well as the overall size of your sports complex.

Even though this can be a sizeable upfront investment, there are ways to reduce costs and get some money back. Government initiatives, such as the Smart Export Guarantee, pay for extra electricity that’s fed back into the grid.

Here is a general idea of what you can expect to pay for a solar power system:
