Following a solar installation at Norwich City FC’s training ground, we’ve furthered our support for the club by partnering with them for the 2019-20 season.

Earlier this year, we installed two solar PV systems on the roofs of the newly-built gym and academy at the Lotus Training Centre. This was part of the club’s £5m redevelopment of the training facilities.

While these new facilities are essential for the development of the club and the players, they add additional demand to an already energy-intensive site. Our solar panel installation allows the club to save money on their energy spend by generating their own clean, low carbon electricity.

The PV installation…

  • Uses 192 solar panels over the two roofs
  • Generates 57,596 kWh of energy every year – that’s enough to keep four floodlights lit for 174.5 games of football [1]
  • Saves 25,658 kg of C02 every year by generating clean energy [2]

Ben Kensell, Chief Operating Officer at Norwich City FC, said:

“We are delighted to welcome on board RenEnergy. They have been able to offer us a renewable and long-lasting solution to our energy consumption at the Lotus Training Centre which falls directly in-line with the aim of lowering our carbon footprint.”

RenEnergy is thrilled to be supporting Norwich City through their time in the Premier League, and we wish them the best of luck for the rest of the season.

These figures are based on Microgeneration Certification Standard (MCS) procedure and assume perfect conditions. These figures assume the use of four standard 55kW floodlights.
