Sunbather generates huge savings in Geraldton – WA

Mid 2013, the City of Greater Geraldton issued a tender for the supply and installation of pool covers as their heating bills were spiralling, and they needed a practical and safe solution for one person to operate their pool covers.  The project had pre-approved funding allocated and had to achieve the following:

    • Substantially reduce gas heating bills and air heating bills
    • Reduce evaporation to save heat, as well as reduce building maintenance
    • Provide a safe and automated system for their staff to operate. The covers had to be wall mounted, and remote control.

This type of specialist project is right up Sunbather’s alley, and we were successful with our tender application following a detailed site visit and presentation of projected savings exceeding $28,000 per year, along with 1,284 tonnes of Greenhouse Gas savings. The project received funding from the Department of Resources, as part of the Community Energy Efficiency Programme (CEEP).The design and installation was a challenge, however Sunbather’s 40 years of experience made it a seamless process for the client and they were highly satisfied with the results.To see how much Sunbather can guarantee to save your pool and receive our free Energy Audit, contact 1800 228 437, or
