Golf course predicts £200,000 saving after solar panel installation

York Golf Club expects a saving of £200,000 over the lifetime of a solar power system it has just had installed.

The 65-panel solar array has been installed by Green Building Renewables, which has five offices in Yorkshire, and is predicted to save the club six tonnes of CO2 each year.

Mike Wells, Managing Secretary of York Golf Club at Strensall, said: “The club had considered installing solar previously, but not progressed. However, escalating energy costs over the last year or two and the desire to reduce our carbon footprint led the board to proceed. The installation has been done without disrupting members or our operations, and Green Building Renewables was selected as the most appropriate installer for our needs.”

The installation of solar technology at the club signifies its commitment to environmental responsibility but also sets an example for the broader community.

Green Building Renewables’ MD Chris Delaney said: “Installing solar at such a well-known regional location is a real honour. Sports venues, like York Golf Club, use considerable amounts of energy, and solar systems allow them to make dramatic energy savings and reduce their energy bills.”
