Cold Move adds more solar power

Oswestry, Shropshire, UK: Temperature controlled storage and distribution specialist Cold Move has installed 600 solar panels at its head office.

The 150kWp solar PV installation was overseen by leading renewable energy and energy efficiency firm Eco Environments.
The 600 Hyundai panels at Cold Move’s HQ in Oswestry, follows the installation by Eco Environments of 1077 panels at its depot in Golborne, Warrington, earlier this year.

The 250kWp Golborne project was the biggest roof-based solar PV installation in the North of England.
The two schemes form a major part of Cold Move’s plan to reduce its carbon footprint by 25% by 2020 with carbon emissions reducing by 176,386kg a year and generating 324,240kWh of electricity annually.

James Woodward, Cold Move’s managing director, said: “Eco Environments has now successfully delivered two major installations of solar PV for Cold Move. “We are firmly committed to a renewable energy strategy and we are already seeing the environmental and financial benefits of our investment in Oswestry and Golborne.

“We will be seeking out further opportunities to reduce our carbon footprint with the introduction of low emission cars and potentially a wind turbine at one of our sites.”

The project, which was funded in full by Belvedere Energy Investments, is the latest in a line of commercial projects captured by Eco Environments. The company designs, installs and commissions technologies including solar PV, wind turbines, solar thermal, air source heat pumps and energy efficient lighting.

David Hunt, Eco Environments’ sales and marketing director, said: “We have seen a significant increase in the number of companies and organisations approaching us to discuss how they can include renewable energy and energy efficiency projects in their financial strategies to help slash costs and reduce their carbon footprint.”
