Westlands club, based in Grimsby, is a social club that offers a great space for events and gatherings.
They have recently just undergone a wide range of works to become more sustainable and reduce their carbon footprint.
The site has installed new solar PV to utilise natural resources to help cover the energy use during the day. The site installed, in total, 10 roof solar panels.
As part of their sustainable changes they also replaced all of their halogen lights to LED’s, to increase efficiency and create a more comfortable environment.
Alongside changing the lights, the Westlands Club also installed a new energy efficient boiler to enable them to use less gas for heating to further increase energy savings.
As the site also offers alcoholic beverages, they also have a cellar. To improve the efficiency of keeping the beverages cool, insulation was installed.
The Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire programme awarded a 38% grant of £9,556.15 towards this energy saving project.
Mike Foley, Treasury Secretary for Westlands Club said that:
Our first energy bill has arrived, from 4th July to 25th July it was only £22.74. Hopefully a great saving from the solar panel installation. The new insulated cellar must be the most up to date cellar in the town.
Westlands Club is one of the many businesses in the Greater Lincolnshire area benefiting from the Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire programme. If you are looking to save money on your energy bills, get in touch today to see if your business is eligible.
