Eco Environments has recently installed 1,077 Hyundai solar panels at the Warrington site of temperature controlled storage and distribution company Cold Move.

The 250kWp system at the firm’s base in Golborne is 100m in length – covering almost half of the company’s warehouse roof, and is the biggest roof-based solar PV project in the North of England.

The scheme, part of Cold Move’s plan to reduce its carbon footprint by 25% by 2020, will see carbon emissions reduce by 108,658 tonnes a year and generate 199,740kWh of electricity annually.

David Hunt, Eco Environments’ sales and marketing director, said, “This is a flagship scheme for Eco Environments and firmly establishes us as one of the leading renewable energy companies for the business community.

“We are witnessing ever increasing interest from businesses in exploring ways in which they can become more energy efficient and tackle the nightmare of crippling energy costs which are now one of the biggest concerns for business owners.”

James Woodward, Cold Move’s managing director, added, “We are delighted with the installation by Eco Environments and are already experiencing the environmental and financial benefits of the system.

“We will be seeking out further opportunities to reduce our carbon footprint with the introduction of low emission cars and potentially a wind turbine at one of our sites.”
