A local football team has recently announced moving into the next league of environmental energy. Gillingham Football Club has secured lottery financing and put up a new roof and fitted it with solar panels.
The Football League Two side is the local team of Gillingham, in the South East of England. It is a town in Kent, in the unitary authority of Medway. The resident club has been in existence since 1893 and plays its home games at Priestfield Stadium. Gillingham FC were looking to replace their asbestos roof with something new, as well as ecologically friendly, so they called on the Sports England Initiative for help.
It is a programme set up by the Exchequer and the National Lottery to provide financial aid to sporting activities and venues, in various communities. The incentive, along with a feed in tariff from the government, allowed the club to fit a solar power system to their roof. The fixture was a 5.5KWp PV solution, consisting of 22 panels. It will be used to produce heat and electricity from the sun. This will relegate high energy bills to the past and put Gillingham top of the table when it comes to energy efficiency.
