About Kings Park Tavern: 

Open every day, Kings Park Tavern operates a Bistro, Spots Bar and numerous function areas. Whether it’s having a few drinks while watching the game or letting the kids have fun while you relax, Kings Park Tavern has it all.


The Challenge

Kings Park Tavern made the choice to go solar for several reasons, including making an eco-friendly statement and to significantly reduce the tavern’s reliance on conventional energy sources, leading to substantial cost savings in the long run.

In the future, this will allow Kings Park Tavern to channel those savings into enhancing customer experiences in the bistro and sports bar.

For Kings Park Tavern, going solar wasn’t just about reducing their carbon footprint; it was about aligning their brand with both environmental responsibility and economic efficiency.


The Solution

The transition to commercial solar is a meticulous process focused on achieving optimal efficiency and effectiveness. Kings Park Tavern chose to collaborate with Solar Energy Enterprises, drawn to our established success in installing large-scale solar systems.

The journey commenced with a thorough energy audit, where we scrutinised Kings Park Tavern’s energy consumption, pinpointed peak usage periods, and identified areas for optimisation.

Subsequently, a custom-designed solar system was crafted to precisely meet the Tavern’s unique requirements, encompassing the selection of prime locations for solar panels, taking into account factors such as sunlight exposure and available space.


The panels selected for the Kings Park Tavern installation were the Jinko 415 Watt 108 Half Cell TIGER PRO Mono-Facial P-Type 30mm Black Frame Solar Panel. The 415 Watt TIGER PRO panels were chosen due to the following features:

  • Multi Busbar Technology – Better light trapping and current collection to improve module power output and reliability.
  • Reduced Hot Spot Loss – Optimised electrical design and lower operating current for reduced hot spot loss and better temperature coefficient.
  • Increased Durability – Protection against extreme environmental conditions including high salt mist and ammonia resistance.


At Kings Park Tavern, we installed the Sunny Tripower CORE2 STP 110-60 inverter from SMA. A game-changer for larger commercial PV systems, the STP 110-60 inverter offers flexible system design and maximised yields.

Equipped with the SMA ShadeFix software solution, the STP 110-60 automatically optimises system performance, even in the presence of partially shaded modules and ensures maximum PV system yields by swiftly detecting and addressing failures.


The Results

The results of installing solar at Kings Park Tavern have been both immediate and impressive.

  1. Immediate Cost Savings: The implementation of solar energy systems led to immediate cost savings, with annual electricity cost reductions of $16,570.
  2. Impressive ROI: The return on investment (ROI) for Kings Park Tavern solar projects is just 3.5 years, providing a substantial return on their initial investment.
  3. Sustainable Energy: With a CO2 reduction of 367 tonnes, this is the equivalent of planting 4,500 trees or taking 75 cars off the road for an entire year.


Kings Park Tavern’s strategic move to integrate solar technology not only reinforces their dedication to sustainability but also translates into significant annual savings on electricity costs. By harnessing the power of solar energy to meet a substantial portion of their energy requirements, the establishment is making considerable strides towards fulfilling its environmental objectives.

This dual impact not only underscores the tavern’s commitment to a greener future but also positions them to enjoy tangible financial advantages, aligning eco-conscious practices with enhanced fiscal returns.
