Extreme Safety has announced that its head office solar power project has been completed and the business now generates enough power to supply its entire office and warehouse facility. The Dinmore (Ipswich) based Electrical Safety supplier decided to go green to do their part for the environment, and was proud to ‘flick the switch’ and turn on its host of solar panels today.
Business Development Manager, Andre Borell, said they were pleased to be able to do their part for the environment. “I think it’s a positive step for our business. It’s great to reduce the carbon we produce, and to be totally self sufficient is the holy grail. People always think ‘I can’t make a difference’; but if everyone does something like this we definitely can. The visual impact of the panels on our roof is quite impressive too, so hopefully it inspires more people to go green and get panels on their roof,” he said.
The Extreme Safety facility is now lined with solar panels, running almost the full length of the 800m2 warehouse. The panels will generate 6.9kW per hour during optimal solar generating times, meaning that the facility will feed back a large surplus of power to the grid.
The solar scheme complements the businesses policy of offsetting the carbon produced by staff travel on all flights. Extreme Safety aim to continue to introduce new green initiatives in the near future.
