Manchester-based energy management company, NCS, has completed a major energy refit of Kendal Golf Club in Cumbria.

As part of the project, NCS provided solutions on all aspects of the golf club’s energy management, including the use of lighting and heating, as well as reducing ongoing maintenance costs.

Kendal Golf Club is now achieving a reduction in consumption of 21% on electricity and 41% on gas, providing a return on investment of 18 months.

NCS assisted Kendal Golf Club to obtain funding via the Carbon Trust to implement the energy reduction project, which enabled the installation of energy efficient heating controls, as well as presence and light level controls. Inefficient lighting was also replaced with the latest design and technologies – with all parts approved for an ECA tax rebate, providing additional savings for the golf club.

Chris Norburn, managing director of NCS, said, “We’re delighted to have worked with Kendal Golf Club and we look forward to continuing our relationship together. The club was able to operate as usual during the implementation of new systems and the installation was carried out with the minimum of disruption.”

The energy management company specialises in the design and implementation of complete solutions to meet an organisation’s energy management needs. NCS will continue to work with Kendal Golf Club throughout 2012 to ensure the energy reduction currently being realised is maintained.

Norburn added, “We initially aimed to reduce energy spend by 15%, giving a return on investment within two years. However, we have completely exceeded this target and the golf club will see a return on investment within just 18 months. This result underpins our endeavours to deliver tangible bottom line improvements at all times.”

Ian Clancy at Kendal Golf Club, added, “NCS has played a key role in enabling us to reduce our energy consumption and, as a consequence, reduce costs. Our club has a long standing history in this area, providing golfing facilities for over 100 years and we’re proud to boast the latest in energy efficient technology.”
