New solar panels and battery storage for Rochdale Sports Club

Date published: 20 January 2024

Rochdale Sports Club is set to reduce its carbon footprint and its energy bills by a staggering amount after installing solar panels and battery storage at its Bridgefold Road site.

The sports club says the new addition should reduce its carbon footprint by over 18 tonnes per year, as well as saving £15,000 per year on its energy bills.

The system was installed by Revilo Developments and funded through grants from the Valancia Community Fund and Rochdale North Township Committee.

Andy Parton, from Rochdale Sports Club, said: “Revilo Developments Ltd did a fantastic job in designing and installing the perfect system for our needs.

“The club is extremely grateful to Valancia’s Community Fund for its grant of £50,000 and Rochdale Council’s North Township Committee for its grant of £5,000.

“Without their help, the club could not have afforded to install this system.”
