The panels cost the club about $108,000 after state grants and it is estimated that they will bring $30,000 in savings per year.
The Cripple Creek Golf and Country Club, Dagsboro, Del., is now running off four solar panels, reports Delmarvas’ FOX 21.
The panels were installed on the club’s pool house, maintenance facility, irrigation systems, and golf carts. When the sun’s rays hit the panels, DC power is converted to AC power, which then powers the club’s facilities.
The panels cost the country club about $108,000 after state grants. According to the company who made and installed the panels, they will bring roughly $30,000 in savings per year to the club.
The club had some of the solar panels for a few months already, Thomas Hunsberger of Cripple Creek said, “For the full months of February and March, we’ve cut energy costs 65 percent and we feel that is good.”
