China Fleet Country Club leads the way in sustainability with new solar PV installation

China Fleet Country Club in Cornwall has announced the successful installation of a state-of-the-art solar photovoltaic (PV) system.

This new addition reinforces the leading leisure and golf resort’s commitment to environmental stewardship and renewable energy, further solidifying its position as an industry leader in sustainability.

The installation of 400kWh of Solar PV at China Fleet Country Club marks a significant milestone in the organisation’s ongoing efforts to reduce its carbon footprint and promote a greener future.

This new system comprises a vast array of solar panels expertly positioned on the club’s premises to harness the power of the sun and generate clean, renewable electricity. 

By leveraging solar energy, China Fleet Country Club is expected to achieve substantial energy savings, reducing its reliance on non-renewable resources and significantly decreasing its carbon emissions.

The solar PV system will generate a substantial portion of the club’s electricity needs, powering various facilities, including the Health Club, Food and Beverage Areas, Hotel and Golf Club. 

The move to solar power aligns perfectly with China Fleet’s commitment to sustainability and demonstrates the organisation’s dedication to protecting the environment. This installation not only showcases its responsible approach to energy consumption but also sets an inspiring example for other businesses in the region and beyond. 

Dean Bennett, Managing Director at China Fleet Country Club, said: “We are thrilled to introduce this innovative solar PV system. This project is a testament to our ongoing commitment to sustainability and our desire to lead the way in environmental stewardship.

“By harnessing the power of the sun, we are reducing our carbon footprint and making a positive impact on the planet.”

China Fleet Country Club worked closely with ZLC Energy, a leading solar energy solutions provider, to design and install the solar PV system. The collaboration ensured that the installation met the highest standards of efficiency, durability, and performance.

The project involved extensive planning, meticulous engineering, and the utilisation of the latest solar technology to maximize energy production and minimize environmental impact.

In addition to the environmental benefits, the solar PV installation is expected to result in long-term cost savings for China Fleet Country Club. By generating clean energy onsite, the club will reduce its reliance on traditional energy sources and mitigate the impact of rising energy costs. This proactive step will contribute to the financial sustainability of the club while promoting the use of renewable energy. 

China Fleet Country Club’s solar PV installation represents a significant leap forward in its sustainability journey. As the club embraces solar power, it not only enhances its operations but also encourages its members, visitors, and the local community to adopt more environmentally friendly practices.

The initiative serves as a reminder that individual actions can collectively make a substantial difference in the fight against climate change.
