Ping Europe focuses on green energy transition with solar power
Club manufacturer Ping provides positive news from the equipment industry in terms of energy supply. The European headquarters of the U.S. company will produce 41.5 percent of its own electricity consumption in the future. With a total of 655 solar modules on the roofs of the company’s buildings in Gainsborough, UK, the company is working towards significantly greater self-sufficiency in terms of energy supply.
The solar system is designed to produce a total of 250,000 kilowatt hours per year, 71.5 percent of which will be used directly for daily needs. Excess electricity is fed into the grid. “We are very excited about the installation of our solar panels and the impact they will have on our energy consumption and overall sustainability as a company,” notes Lisa Lovett as Managing Director for Ping Europe. “We are always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint, and with this renewable energy source, we are working towards completely clean energy use.”
There is also a nice marketing effect: The panels are attached in the shape of a PING logo, so the lettering is also very recognizable from the air.
