Lancashire-based Low Carbon Energy are gearing up to carry out their first installation since lockdown commenced.
The leading multi-service renewable energy company hasn’t slowed down during these uncertain times. Instead the business has been powering through, perfecting existing projects prior to installation resuming.
Coach House, one of the largest and most trusted trade-only names in the furniture and homewares industry, approached Low Carbon Energy wanting help with their ambitious targets to reduce their energy costs and carbon footprints, and aid with sustainable security for their growing business.
“With energy prices continuing to rise and a move towards electric vehicles looming we took the decision to invest in a large solar project to drastically reduce the amount of electricity we draw from the grid”, explains Daniel Bovingdon, Director at Coach House.
“The aim eventually will be to draw as little energy from the grid as possible, becoming a self-sufficient sustainable business. We have also invested in the option to sell any excess energy back to the energy provider. Gerard and the team at Low Carbon Energy have been great throughout the process. We look forward to working with them on the project and cant wait for the end result”.
Gerard Ennis, Managing Director at Low Carbon Energy, adds: “Once we got to know the business and their objectives, we looked at a number of options with the aim of maximising the available roof space as much as possible.”
“Installation will start this week and the final design will see Coach House with a 1MW roof-mounted system, consisting of over 2,300 high performance solar panels. We predict that they will begin to generate close to 850,000 KWh of clean electricity a year in just 8 weeks from installation commencing.”
Low Carbon Energy also played a key role in setting up Coach House with a cost-effective solution to sell their excess clean energy back to the National Grid via Electricity North West, helping the customer future proof their sustainable business.
