Cardiff Harlequins RFC takes bold step toward sustainability and clean energy

Cardiff Harlequins RFC, a pillar of Welsh rugby, has taken a bold step towards sustainability by embracing clean, solar energy in partnership with Celtic Green Energy.

Nestled in the community of Gorslas, Celtic Green Energy has been instrumental in providing renewable energy solutions, aligning with Harlequins RFC’s commitment to environmental stewardship.

At the heart of this initiative lies the club’s dedication to securing its future for generations to come. Recognising rugby as the lifeblood of Welsh communities, Harlequins RFC aims to preserve its heritage by ensuring the sustainability of its operations.

Furthermore, Celtic Green Energy’s support extends beyond energy provision. By enabling communities to save money and operate sustainably amidst rising energy costs, they contribute to the resilience and vitality of these communities.

This move towards clean energy reflects a broader global trend within the sport towards environmental sustainability. With World Rugby’s Environmental Sustainability Plan 2030 emphasizing the need for climate action, Harlequins RFC’s investment in solar energy aligns with these principles, demonstrating their commitment to both the game and the planet.

Club Chair Paul Driscoll commends the efficiency and responsiveness of Celtic Green Energy in implementing the solar panel system on the clubhouse roof. This system, along with two batteries, has significantly reduced the club’s energy consumption, showcasing the tangible benefits of clean energy adoption.

Looking ahead, Harlequins RFC plans to further maximise the benefits of solar energy surplus. Initiatives such as adding a third battery and exploring options for electrically heating hot water underscore the club’s dedication to harnessing clean energy beyond the rugby pitch.

As the sun sets over the Welsh hills, Harlequins RFC stands as a beacon of sustainability, illuminating the path towards a cleaner, brighter future. Through their collaboration with Celtic Green Energy, they exemplify the power of partnership in championing sustainability within the sporting arena and beyond.
