Church Case Study

  • Client: St Bishoy Church
  • Date: 16/04/2015
  • Category: Solar Power Case Study

The Background

St Bishoy built in Mt. Druitt traces its history back to Friday the twenty fourth of January 1969 at six o’clock in the morning, when Major Edward Labib Nematalla Australia’s First Coptic Orthodox Priest arrived in Sydney to set up the church. This magnificent Church was consecrated by His Holiness Pope Shenouda the third on Sunday, the twenty sixth of November 1989.

The Challange

The church had the challenge in front of it to bring down its energy cost which had risen to 57,760kwh or $14,295 in 2013 and use the savings for more community projects. The task was given to Solar Bright to suggest a solution.

Project Tasks Identified

  1. Based on the roof area the church could install a roof-mounted solar PV system.
  2. The use of the latest generation of panels with higher efficiency could generate over 20 to 25%
  3. Would result in savings of over $4,000 for the church.

The Solutions Provided

  • SolarBright analysed the energy consumption pattern for last 365 days mapped it on their special software.
  • Site inspections and roof suitability including roof stress calculations were done.
  • Solar Bright installs a 50kW solar PV system using high-efficiency panels and inverters suggested to maximise generation for the next 25 years.

Customer Reviews

  • Tricky Skylight Install! Great service, especially the installer Sam. We had a tricky install for the skylight with an old house and ornate ceilings. That didn’t stop them. I spoke to the team at the store to clarify details then when he came out he was able to get it installed in under 2 hours - perfect. Thank you.

  • The installation of the Maxlight has transformed my kitchen and living area into an inviting well lit room, which is the focal point of my house. Before I contacted SolarBright no activity was possible in the kitchen without turning on the electric down lights. I could not be happier with this new product.

  • Great Service and great people to deal with. From the start, all the team at Solar Bright respected what I asked for. They politely gave me their quote and patiently answered all my questions without harassing me with never ending phone calls… We had a 5KW solar system and Powerwall 2 installed on the day they said, and all the installers were great to deal with and did a fantastic job. My wife and I have no hesitation in recommending SolarBright for all your solar needs.
