Yearsley Group goes solar

Heywood, UK: The Yearsley Group has installed a £2.2m solar panel system, designed and supplied by Waxman Energy.

By generating 10% of its annual electricity by using renewable energy, the company is saving around 340 tonnes of CO2 a year, according to Solar Choice which installed the system.

Bury-based Solar Choice installed  5,000m2 of solar PV panels, capable of producing 310,000 kilowatt hours per annum, across two sites at Heywood, Greater Manchester and Holmewood, near Chesterfield.

Solar Choice sales director Ajay Hargreaves said: “Yearsley Group has made a major investment and cleverly made use of its existing assets to create green energy to help power its own operations and help it to meet the environmental policies of many of its customers.

“These are by far the largest roof mounted installations we have ever done and one of the biggest in the UK, producing an enormous amount of electricity in a clean and sustainable way and significantly reducing the company’s reliance on the National Grid.”
