The installation of Solar Panels to our main warehouse and office building started on Wednesday 27th April 2011 here in sunny Bournemouth. The installation of these photovoltaic panels is part of our ongoing commitment to reducing our carbon footprint and building a sustainable business. At 75Kw we believe that our solar installation is the largest in Dorset and one of the largest on the South Coast. It generates electricity to feed the national grid as well as our own requirements. And is a substantial saving on our Carbon Footprint The Facts: 400 panels, 3km of cable to generate 75Kw of electricity. Installation began on Wednesday 27th April and was completed on Friday 6th May. Below you can see time lapse videos of the installation taking place.
And here you can see a panoramic view of the final installation.
Other initiatives that we have implemented include low energy lighting, fuel conditioning systems fitted to our gas heaters and similar technology which have all gone towards us being awarded ISO 14001. And we are constantly looking for new ways to help safe guard our environment for future generations.
