St Andrews Links, Scotland.

 

St Andrews Links

St Andrews Links undertook a policy to diversify energy and fuel supply.  By installing solar panels on the roofs of their maintenance facilities The Links is able to sell the energy produced directly to the national grid, for which they receive regular payments.  The investment into the installation of these solar panels will be paid off in approximately 10 years but has already led to an annual cost saving of £2,700 to the facility.  In addition to this St Andrews have a number of electric hybrid vehicles, which contributes to this saving.
