Leyland Cricket Club were looking to cut their carbon foot print and save on energy bills. In working with global Energy Systems they also partnered a local firm again reducing the carbon foot print of the project.
The club has a relatively small heating need but given the seasonal nature of cricket a high hot water need in the summer months. Working with the club Global Energy Systems balanced the energy demands of a London Eco Air Boiler with an electricity generating PV array. In this manner when the sun is out and the showers are needed the solar panels off set the heat pumps use of electricity offering zero carbon and bills at point of use.
The running costs shown do not take into account the savings from using electricity generated from the PV as the metering system does not allow this to be separated out. It is thus based on all electricity for the heat pump having been bought at standard rates.
The carbon savings of over 2 tonnes do not account for the use of PV either, which could reduce this by a further 50%.
