Cold Move fits 1077 solar panels

Golborne, Wigan, UK: Temperature controlled storage and distribution company Cold Move has installed 1077 solar panels at its Warrington site in a bid to reduce its carbon footprint by 25% by 2020.

The 250kWp system installation is over 100-metres in length covering almost half of the company’s giant warehouse roof. The scheme, part of Cold Move’s plan to reduce its carbon footprint by 25% by 2020, will see carbon emissions reduce by 108,658 tonnes a year and generate 199,740 kWh of electricity annually.

James Woodward, Cold Move’s managing director, say: “We are delighted with the installation by Eco Environments and are already experiencing the environmental and financial benefits of the system.”

“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,” Woodward says.

The project was funded by Belvedere Energy Investments with installation by Liverpool-based Eco Environments.

David Hunt, Eco Environments’ sales and marketing director, said: “We are witnessing ever increasing interest from businesses in exploring ways in which they can become more energy efficient and tackle the nightmare of crippling energy costs which are now one of the biggest concerns for business owners.”
