Ra Power Pro Solar Panels Reduce Carbon Footprint, Improve Efficiencies for Certified Audubon Sanctuary Golf Course
Quail Ridge Country Club Continues Leadership Role in Sustainability
Ra Power Pro, the market leading manufacturer and distributor of solar panels for golf & utility carts, and low speed vehicles, has successfully improved efficiencies and reduced the carbon footprint at Quail Ridge Country Club.
“When a solution was presented to me to reduce our environmental impact and reduce the labor required to maintain our utility carts, it was an easy choice,” said Joe Ramsey, Director of Agronomy at Quail Ridge Country Club. “I no longer have to charge my cart throughout the day. This has simply made my job easier and more efficient. It is a valuable product.”
Quail Ridge is a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Golf Course. The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses is an award-winning education and certification program that helps golf courses protect the environment and preserve the natural heritage of the game of golf. By helping people enhance the valuable natural areas and wildlife habitats that golf courses provide, improve efficiency, and minimize potentially harmful impacts of golf course operations, the program serves an important environmental role worldwide.
“We are thrilled that Quail Ridge Country Club has been a loyal customer for nearly five years,” said Geoff Haynes, President of Ra Power Pro. “We take exceptional pride in the product we manufacturer and it is highly rewarding to see our panels create long term benefits for our clients and the environment.”
Ra Power Pro supplies clean energy to golf courses and resorts across the country by retrofitting the facilities fleet of golf and utility carts with a rooftop solar panel. These military-grade panels are both waterproof and impact resistant while eliminating nearly 200lbs of carbon dioxide per year, per car. With an average of 60 carts per course, those reductions would be the equivalent to planting a small forest (600 trees) each year, according to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency).
Quail Ridge Country Club is a private community located in the heart of Palm Beach County. With over 600 acres of landscaped grounds and two championship golf courses, the community exudes a “Championship Lifestyle”. Quail Ridge celebrated the opening of their new $23 million Clubhouse in December of 2017. The historic country club makes no exception in providing its residents with state of the art amenities.
Ra Power Pro’s panels are easily installed on most golf cars and utility vehicles and have a 10-year life expectancy. The quality of the product has propelled Ra Power Pro to be the leading provider of solar panels for the resort and golf industry, with exclusive partnerships with Club Car Ingersoll Rand and Polaris Industries.
