Solar system will power two-thirds of Club Lennox
CLUB Lennox has announced it has invested more than $70,000 on a 68kw roof-top solar system, which will power two-thirds of the club.
General manager Geoff Martin said the green initiative was expected to pay for itself in just three-and-a-half years.
"The introduction of renewable energy will ensure a better future for the club and will act as a significant energy saving measure, while also saving money on our energy bills and investing in renewable energy," he said.
Club Lennox has already introduced a number of eco initiatives, including a glass crusher to recycle bottles, organic bins for kitchen waste, large recycling bins, rainwater tanks to water the greens and a waterless urinal system in the men's bathrooms.
The solar system is currently being installed by the SAE Group.
Mr Martin said Club Lennox was "going from strength to strength" since it reopened its doors on Boxing Day in 2013.
Regular events include bingo, trivia, raffles and live music.
The bowls greens are in use almost every day, and the restaurant is open Wednesday to Sunday for lunch and dinner.
