In April of this year solar experts, Brilliant Harvest, designed one of the UK’s largest roof-mounted solar arrays for Newport manufacturer, Asset International.
A few months on and the solar panel system has already outperformed predictions by producing 12% more energy than predicted. It has also regained over 10% of the initial capital expenditure.
Brilliant Harvest fitted 1,040 solar modules and 7 inverters as part of the solution, which was designed to produce 222,000kWhs of electricity and deliver 112 tonnes of carbon savings for Asset International’s factory.
The factory is using 100% of the energy produced on site to help protect the business from rising energy costs for the next few decades.
Jeff Ingvaldson, Founder and Managing Director of Brilliant Harvest comments; “We are delighted our solar PV strategy is meeting Asset International’s objectives earlier than expected. Now is the time for companies to take a fresh look at solar energy. For anyone with doubts about related costs, solar installation has proven to be more and more affordable and can generate great savings as well as providing an income stream.”
Graham Bennett, Operations Manager at Asset International says; “We have always been committed to reducing our carbon footprint and were becoming concerned about rising energy costs, the initial results show companies can be green and more efficient in generating energy.”
Asset International’s latest CEMARS accreditation by the Achilles carbon reduction programme, further highlights the company’s commitment to its environmental impact.
The energy regulator, Ofgem, has forecast standard electricity prices will rise 20% by 2020.
