Velocity Invests in Low Carbon Solar Power
As part of our continued activities to reduce waste and make the composites industry more sustainable, we have invested in a 70kW Solar PV installation on our state of the art facility in Lancashire. The system will generate around 56,000 kWh of electricity a year and make an annual saving of 34 tonnes of carbon a year– helping us to make significant reductions on our carbon footprint.
Gerry Johnson, Director, Velocity Composites said: “We are always searching for ways to save more energy and reduce our carbon footprint as we look to the future. Our aerospace clients rightly demand that we constantly look to improve efficiency, which is why we decided to work with Low Carbon Energy.
“Solar PV matches our needs perfectly and during the summer months, when our air conditioning and freezers are running at maximum, we are generating large amounts of electricity to offset the cost.”
