A few of the vast array of solar panels commissioned early July 2011

In early July the factory completed installation of nearly 700 solar panels, one of the largest rooftop installations in the UK. The installation is designed to deliver 160 kw of energy, almost 50% of the power demand. The panels will even generate energy on bright moonlit nights!

The Carbon Trust reviewed the energy efficiency of the factory and suggested installation of a power perfector. Now with the solar panels the energy costs have been reduced by over 60% which obviously feeds through into our prices, especially with energy costs rising it’s reassuring to know that 50% of the power demand is supplied from the rooftop!
