Golf Club dramatically cuts business costs and achieves an alternative income with the addition of Solar PV

Engenera first contacted Cleveland Golf Club regarding a range of possible ways in which to decrease the amount of electricity the club was using subsequently reducing their bills.

Following this a visit was arranged and a renewable energy advisor from Engenera attended the club and carried out an onsite survey to establish the most suitable and cost effective solution to save the school money.

The findings of the survey showed Cleveland Golf Club could be making a vast saving by installing a solar photovoltaic system .

A breakdown of the estimations given to Cleveland by Engenera showed that if the club invested £49,000, they could expect to see an annual return on investment of 16% with a payback period estimated at only 7 years. The added incentive was a total average annual income and saving of £9,775.40 with, over the 20 years of the system, over £195,000 generated.


Cleveland Golf Club not only benefitted from extraordinary financial benefits, but also best in class technology. Engenera installed a Solis three phase inverter system – the latest in solar PV equipment. Inverters are technologically the most important component in solar PV systems, converting DC into AC suitable for the grid

Utilising the latest production technologies and sourcing components from world recognised sources the Solis inverter has a track record of reliability, efficiency and competitive pricing – three attributes that all customers look for in an inverter.
Over 97.5% max. efficiency and a compact and light design the Solis 3 phase range is a great value solution for all commercial PV installations.


Before installation of the solar PV system, Cleveland Golf Club was concerned about increasing energy bills. Following the installation, business costs have been dramatically cut and payments are up to 25% less per year.

We take all the information collected from the survey i.e. the pitch, azimuth and orientation of the roof and input this into our PVSol System Design Software. PVSol will then tell us the total yield (kWh) the system will produce each year. This then dictates the PPA rate we can achieve on your project; Or in the instance of able to buy/outright purchase, the total savings and return on investment (ROI) the system will produce. For example, if you are being charged 12p per KWh, Engenera will charge only 9p per KWh giving an immediate day one saving of 3p per KWh.

The continuous rise in our energy bills was really starting to affect our overall running costs and we were becoming increasingly keen to find an alternative way to drive these down. The system is definitely worth the investment and we would certainly recommend that if other clubs can install a Solar PV System, they should.
