Surfers at Queenscliff, North Steyne and Manly do more than patrol the beaches - they are also setting an environmental example. In 2007, on the initiative of the Mayor, the clubhouses were supplied with solar hot water and photovoltaic cells, allowing them to generate all the power they need. This is a tough environment for any externally mounted structure – so every consideration was made to ensure a long lasting system. With many installation companies excited to do this high profile job, Australia Wide Solar was very pleased to be nominated.
