The Club House
Running on sunshine
The club house and hangar are now served by our hybrid power system, one of the delights of a WW2 airfield is that they had very little infrastructure, sometimes a blessing other times a curse.
We now have a 6.3kw solar array which feeds our very hungry battery bank, our generator tops up the batteries when required. This system has more than halved our diesel consumption throughout the year, we hope to expand system this so that we can run purely on solar for most of the year. A small step forward in reducing our reliance on diesel.
The Club has a membership of over 100, with 70 members and 30+ students currently on roll.
