Helping Tenpin Bowling Australia go solar


Accelerating a sport and recreation centre’s transition to renewable energy.

Tenpin Bowling Australia: Solar

Tenpin Bowling Australia were looking for an opportunity to explore the benefits of solar and become a more sustainable business.


Harnessing solar energy on the Sunshine Coast
To reduce Tenpin Bowling Australia’s energy costs and advance their transition to renewable energy, AGL installed a 99.8 kW rooftop solar system at their AGL National High Performance Centre in Alexandra Headland. 

This solar system is expected to generate around 150,000 kWh annually, supporting an estimated 44% of the centre’s overall energy demands.1 It will also allow excess renewable energy generated by the system to be exported back to the grid.


Choosing rooftop solar
Tenpin Bowling Australia’s solar system is expected to offset around 141 tonnes of CO2 emissions in the first year.2 That’s equivalent to taking 43 cars off the road.3

Reduced grid energy consumption¹

Tenpin Bowling Australia had zero upfront installation costs under our 10-year Solar Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). They simply pay for the solar energy produced by their system over the 10-year term.

Reliable solar for business

By partnering with our renewable energy experts, Tenpin Bowling Australia can:

  • save on their electricity bills with low solar rates
  • lower their overall carbon footprint by offsetting carbon emissions
  • reduce their dependency on grid electricity consumption.

AGL is helping Tenpin Bowling Australia achieve their decarbonisation and sustainable energy objectives. Our partnership aims to maximise the opportunities for tenpin bowling centers and other similar businesses across Australia to reduce their energy costs and explore renewable energy solutions.

1This is an estimate based on AGL’s modelling of the solar system’s expected annual energy output at the premises at the time of proposal, taking into account predicted export to the grid and AGL’s understanding of the customer’s annual energy consumption at the premises at the time of proposal.

2This is an estimate based on AGL’s modelling of the solar system’s expected annual energy output at the premises at the time of proposal, converted using the relevant National Greenhouse Account Factor for scope 2 emissions at the time of proposal.

3Based on passenger vehicle fuel consumption in 2020 (ABS Survey of Motor Vehicle Use, 2020), FFC emission factors from NGA Factors August 2023.

4This is an estimate of the difference in energy costs payable by the customer over the relevant period, before and after installation of the solar system. This estimate is based on various assumptions at the time of AGL’s proposal, including in relation to the customer’s annual energy consumption at the premises, modelled solar energy generation and export at the premises, the customer’s retail tariff structure and feed-in tariff, and the value of environmental credits.
