Gandtrack – Reduces reliance on grid energy by 23%

Gandtrack – Reduces reliance on grid energy by 23%

Our latest solar photovoltaic installation has been for Oldham based Gandtrack who are market leaders in the design & manufacture of specialist cutting tools for the aerospace & associated industries.

The manufacturing site consumes 187,229 KWh of electricity annually, during daylight hours so Gandtrack were keen to reduce their reliance on grid electricity and reduce their electricity costs.

Craig Jones of Energy Gain UK recommended the installation of a 50 KWp solar photovoltaic system to generate approx. 42,500 KWh per annum. This works out at approx. 23% of total usage.
