Ranfurly Castle Golf Course Case Study

The Background

Ranfurly Castle Golf Club Drives Towards a Greener Future with Electric Vehicle Charging.

Ranfurly Castle Golf Club, located in the picturesque village of Bridge of Weir, is an 18-hole course steeped in history and tradition. Set amidst the stunning Scottish countryside, it boasts a challenging layout and breathtaking views.

The club offers a variety of facilities, including a clubhouse, pro shop, and dining room, all designed to accommodate golfers and visitors alike. With the growing popularity of electric vehicles, the club recognised the necessity to embrace electric vehicle charging and provide EV charging options for its members and guests.

The club's goal was to find a sustainable solution to address the increasing expenses of electricity and installation while offering visitors a convenient and efficient charging option during their golf experience.

The Solution

Following a comprehensive site assessment, we recommended installing a 22kw fast charging unit, fully integrated with our advanced cloud-based platform, allowing visitors to effortlessly charge their electric vehicles using our Get Connekted app. These units connected to the existing power supply and pole-mounted with a highly visible bull bar at the base for protection.

Our in-house team of highly skilled professionals handled all electrical work, ground works, and installation of the solution, with minimal disruption to the club and visitors. The chargers are connected to our advanced cloud-based management system, enabling drivers to sign up through the Get Connekted app. This allows the club to effectively manage and monitor the charging solution, set preferential tariffs and rates for both members and visitors, generate reports, as well as the option to create a new revenue stream.

"Connekt‘s software solution has made managing and monitoring our new EV chargers a breeze, with a user-friendly interface that allows for easy tracking of electricity usage and setting of preferential tariffs. This not only provides convenience to both our members and visitors, but also generates revenue for the club. Connekt's service exceeded expectations and we highly recommend them to other golf clubs looking to install EV chargers"
