Community Case Study
O’Loughlin Gaels – Pitch Lighting Upgrade
O’Loughlin Gaels GAA club were founded in 1969. The club’s grounds have a footprint 14 acres. They serve as a very large hurling club, camogie club, and handball club. And in addition to that, they provide facilities for basketball players, volleyball players, indoor soccer, Irish dancing, and are a real community facility.
O’Loughlin Gaels approached South East Energy Agency looking to reduce both their carbon footprint and energy costs, in addition to needing new pitch lighting to allow their teams to train 12 months of the year, particularly during the dark winter months. The team at South East Energy Agency coordinated the entire BEC application from the initial energy audit, procurement to warranty checks and all required paperwork. South East Energy Agency have previously worked with O’Loughlin’s on two previous energy upgrade projects in which the club house was insulated, a boiler was upgraded and PV solar panels were installed.
