Upland Club One Year Savings




Perhaps you noticed on our Commercial Projects Page the mention of The Upland Sportsman’s Club as one of our customers.

A few weeks ago Heat Pumps Unlimited had the opportunity to meet for a follow-up with Manager, Mike Murphy and Board Member, Jim Ruxton of the Upland Sporstman’s Club in Plympton, MA.

Jim and Mike told us that the Club had experienced a great savings since taking steps to move toward reducing energy costs. Annually, Jim Ruxton closely monitors the costs of utilities.

The Upland Club has 1800 sq. ft. of use on the sub-floor where the members gather for meetings, drinks and small dinners. The main floor is 2700 sq. ft. where there is a function room and full kitchen. This floor is often rented to non-members and non-profit organizations for social gatherings, as well as used for large group member functions for holidays.  Since the heat pumps have been installed for more efficient and consistent warmth in the heating seasons and continuous, comfortable heating for the warmer seasons, the Club should be able to increase the function room rental year-round.



The savings results the Upland Club shared are as follows:

Installation of LED lights May 2014: by reducing the KWH by 11,562 they realized a savings of $1,041 at a cost of .09006 per KWH.

Installation of 9 heat pumps : in the function room HPU installed 6 heat pump heads and 3 heat pump heads in the member room with a total of 9 compressors. Soon after the installation of the heat pumps there was a utility company rate increase per KWH in February 2015. The total cost of heating for 2015 was $2,125.

From January 2013- October 2014 the Club used 772 gallons of oil at a cost of $3,000.

From October 2014- December 2015 the cost to heat the Club was $875 less than 2013/2014 season.

During the heating season of 2014/2015 the Upland Sportsman’s club used no oil heat. You DO remember all the snow and freezing cold days of the 2014/2015 snow season!!

Jim also informed us that the Upland Club is considering the possibility of solar panels for increased savings on all utilities. We are frequently seeing this combination of solar and heat pumps in both commercial and residential construction or rehab by energy conscious customers. The savings is tremendous!

Both Mike and Jim were pleased to share their testimony for those who may be sitting on the fence about getting an estimate. When asked if they are completely satisfied with the performance of the heat pumps, both gentlemen responded, “100…..DEFINITELY”.

National Grid Responds

Cape Cod Commission’s meeting with National Grid – Responses to Technical questions from March 6, 2015 meeting:
“In addition to the prohibitions on new service connections in the impacted towns, the moratorium restricts any increase in natural gas use by existing customers in these communities through the installation of new gas appliances or certain types of equipment, including conversions of existing non-heating accounts to using natural gas for heating.”    read the full report:  Shortage of Permits

Business Owner Speaks Out

By Christine Legere

Lester Wade has run a successful generator sales, installation and maintenance business for a decade now, but news of the moratorium on all new and expanded natural gas hookups in eight Cape towns has him angry and worried those days may be over.

“How does this even happen?” asked Lester Wade about National Grid’s abruptly announced moratorium earlier this week. “If you have a small business that depends on this and they’re saying the moratorium will last five to seven years, no one can hang on that long.”

Wade, who owns Cape Cod Independent Power in Mashpee, found out about the moratorium Tuesday morning via a story in the Times. “I thought, ‘my business is effectively shut down as of this morning,’ ” Wade said.

Moratorium to Last for Years

“National Grid is freezing out property owners in a number of Cape Cod towns who want to hook up to natural gas for heating. The utility has placed a moratorium on new hookups that could last until 2019—2019!

The utility has placed a sales moratorium that is expected to last years in a number of mid-Cape towns.”   read the full article here: reports

One hundred fifty miles away in Hadley, MA located in Western Massachusetts:

“Berkshire Gas Imposes Hampshire County Hookup Moratorium Blocking Projects in Amherst, Hadley While Calling for Kinder Morgan Pipeline.”

By Jim Kinney

Berkshire Gas Company worried about pipeline capacity and its ability to obtain sufficient supplies of natural gas, is already turning down requests for new gas service in Amherst, Hadley and Hatfield.

The freeze on new piped-in gas service has many developers scrambling to find alternatives, such as costly tanks for trucked-in propane.

“This will stop development,” said Tim Neyhart, Hadley building commissioner. “Its serious. We are not going to see any new business go in.”

‘”The halt to new service will last at least three years.”

“We can’t sell what we don’t have. We don’t make any money from saying ‘no’,” said Berkshire Gas spokesman Christopher C.Farrell said. “We are a public utility. We are not in the business of making threats and playing politics.”
