Utilise Plus Case Study: Worthing Indoor Bowls Club

With the help of a £5,000 grant from the Sustainable Business Partnership CIC, Worthing Indoor Bowls Club installed cost-effective LEDs for their indoor bowling green. This grant was provided through the Utilise Plus programme which offers a variety of services to small and medium sized enterprises to help them tackle their energy use and save money year after year.

The Club’s Manager, Alan Messer, chose LED panels for the re-fit because they provide higher quality lighting and ensure compliance with the guidelines set by the sport’s governing body. They now have 200 LED fittings that have replaced 170 fluorescent lights.


This project is predicted to save the Club over £4,500 each year by decreasing their annual electricity usage by over 34,000 kWh. Thanks to Utilise Plus grant funding, this installation has a payback period of just 2 and a half years!

 

 

As well as saving money on their energy bills, the Bowling Club is also predicted to reduce their annual Greenhouse Gas emissions by an impressive 13.38 tonnes. Alan Messer praised the Utilise Plus programme, commenting that “the project has gone well and to plan and our membership are most impressed with the improvements… Many thanks for your help in assisting the process!”
