Gold Coast Youth Orchestra

Case Study


The Gold Coast Youth Orchestra (GCYO) is committed to the importance of music as an essential component in the social and cultural fibre of our society. One of the ways we serve this commitment is through the provision of orchestral and ensemble experience for our children and young adults. The Gold Coast Youth Orchestra offers the opportunity for young musicians to perform frequently throughout the year. The GCYO chose Solar Link Australia to supply their commercial solar needs and we can help your business too.




Given the ever increasing cost of power, Gold Coast Youth Orchestra called on Solar Link Australia’s expertise to provide a power saving Solar Power Solution. The Gold Coast Youth Orchestra elected to install 10kW Samil (3 Phase Inverter) & 40 x 250W PV (10kW PV System). The panels have a positive tolerance providing reliable output and a guaranteed tolerance of +3%. They also have high module efficiency of up to 15.22%. Moreover, they are certified to withstand 2400 Pa of wind and snow loads of up to 5400P as well as withstand a direct hail hit due to its tempered glass cover that is tested to TUV Standards (25mm diameter ice ball at 23.Om/s), keeping users worry-free at times of harsh weather.


Samil inverters are known as one of the leading brands in the industry and are made to precision. They are robust in their build & offer unmatched after Sales Technical Support. Furthermore, with inbuilt communications functionality, the Gold Coast Youth Orchestra’s Solar investment can be monitored via phone, tablet or laptop from anywhere in the world with a simple login.

Solar Link Australia is proud to supply & install the industry’s leading brands to one of the Gold Coast’s leading educational and cultural venues. The Gold Coast Youth Orchestra will not only save money by using solar but is also leading the way in its social and corporate responsibility to reduce its own carbon footprint.
