Plymouth Argyle Solar Panels

Stadium Solar Panels may sound like a grand design when you think of our big projects. For example, the array we’re installing on the superb new Plymouth Argyle Grandstand.

Nevertheless they are highly effective in even small concentrations. 

Think you’re too small to go green?

On the positive side there’s another way to go green initially. Golf clubs, smaller sports clubs, gyms and cricket grounds will make substantial inroads by switching to fixed term green tariffs.

Eco friendly fitness and sport is already here

The first thing to remember is that we’re in a race to be a net zero-Carbon economy by 2050. In fact, the Paris Climate Agreement commits the UK to it. Nowhere gets a pass.

As an illustration, the City of Plymouth, Plymouth Argyle’s home, has committed to become net zero-Carbon by 2030. That’s a full twenty years before the Agreement comes into force.

What’s the quickest way to go green?

Notwithstanding the things we’ve mentioned, there are of course more things to consider. On balance, with substantial but sometimes intermittent energy usage, going further will be necessary.

Obviously, if you’re a big stadium with the potential for solar panels, the long term savings are significant. For example, the energy cost savings from a large Solar array will easily exceed £400,000 over twenty years. That’s without the Feed-in-Tariff which ended in March 2019.

The attitude of the public

A carbon trust survey indicates that 67% of people would feel more positive towards organisations that are reducing their carbon footprint. A Futurra survey goes further with 88%. This is most compelling evidence.

What if we don’t have space or funds for Solar?

LED lighting can also make an enormous difference to both small and large concerns. This is particularly economic for internal facilities lighting, floodlighting and illuminating public areas.

Similarly, providing efficiently generated hot water from modern condensing boilers can save sizeable amounts of money and reduce your carbon footprint. 

Here are your options, depending on what type of facilities you operate –

  • Green electricity and gas tariffs
  • Fixed term green energy deals
  • Gas condensing boilers
  • Solar PV
  • Solar Thermal
  • Power Purchase Agreements
  • LED lighting
  • Battery Storage
  • Air Source Heat Pumps
  • Ground Source Heat Pumps
  • Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

Award-winning IU Energy has capabilities with all these technologies. To discuss your options, contact us now. 

Electric Vehicle Charging Stations – eco-friendly gym & sports Facilities

Let’s talk a bit more about a comparatively inexpensive option. In fact, it’s a visible demonstration that you’re at the vanguard of green sports and fitness – Electric Vehicle Charging Stations.

Increasingly more people are buying EVs and it’ll make you a more attractive facility and employer. In fact, the projected numbers of EVs are staggering –
