Gillingham Golf Club driving home energy savings with solar PV


HBS New Energies were approached by swingSURE on behalf of Gillingham Golf Club to deliver a bespoke energy saving solution to protect their business from rising energy costs.

They saw solar energy as a reliable and effective way of reducing the clubs running costs by generating their own clean electricity on-site whilst earning a healthy ROI from the Feed-in Tariff income, for 20 years. We delivered a full turnkey solution managing all aspects in-house from design, DNO application through to installation and commissioning. The golf club will now enjoy savings of up to 50% on their daytime energy costs with a payback period of just 5 years and an average ROI of 26%.



Gillingham Golf Club Solar PV Install – Tony Spinks, Finance Chairman

”Every golf club should have solar panels. We will save a projected £188,000 over the next twenty years on electricity and that’s not small change! swingSURE were most helpful in making this happen. Their solar panel company were the best price and the installation took less than a week to complete with minimal disruption. All we did was sign a few papers and left the rest to them.”

”The panels look great, hardly notice them and the return on investment is astounding. The whole process was easy and the solar panel company and swingSURE acted very professionally throughout – would not hesitate to recommend them.”
