Since 2016 Club Tweed over 1,275 solar panels giving the capacity to produce a 425 kilowatts. They provide up to 23/24% of the Clubs daily power consumption.
The benefit of solar energy is that it is non-polluting making it one of the cleanest sources of energy requiring very minimal maintenance. THBC’s ample roof areas provide the ideal location for all these solar panels and coupled with Gold Coast, Tweed regions average of 245 days a year of fine and sunny weather will considerably reduce our reliance upon the national power grid as our only source of electricity.
We have partnered with Recycle Me to replace our takeaway coffee cups with recycled takeaway coffee cups ‘with a new generation lining and a specially designed collection network, guaranteeing cups and lids will be recycled into paper products and the lids into items such as plastic photo frames’.
Every six months we are notified of how many trees we have saved from harvest and the amount of cups that were recycled.
FACT: From January – June 2021 we saved 4 trees from harvest and collected 18,023 cups for recycling.
