During January to February 2017, Electronic Metalwork Services employed Richmond Green Energy Ltd to fit the factory roof with solar panels, which will generate over 120,000 kWh per annum. Therefore alone our roof has the ability to generate enough power for 26 homes a year using the power of the sun! Furthermore, over a 30 year period, the installed solar panels would save over 2000 tonnes of CO2 emissions.
This installation will enable us to continue to run our most energy intensive machinery, notably our two Trumpf TruLaser‘s, and still be able to sell back the surplus energy to the National Grid.
The installation of these solar panels will enable us to cut our overhead costs looking to the longterm and provide stability as energy prices look to increase in the future.
