Datchet Water Sailing Club originated in 1975 and provides a sailing area and related facilities on the Queen Mother reservoir overlooking Windsor Castle. The clubhouse accommodates social events, open meetings and sailing tuition for the local community.
Driven by the need to address high electricity bills and with funding successfully awarded by Sports England, Drakes Renewables were commissioned to install a 36kW East-West system on it flat roof.
In the two years since commissioning the system has delivered bill savings and income that have contributed to the running of the club. The electricity generated also now powers a newly installed heat pump.
It was a pleasure to work with Drakes Renewables. They were very keen to ensure that the system they provided would meet our needs. They were patient and happy to investigate different options with us. The work was done in the time they said it would take and at the price quoted.
