With over 100 year’s experience, GE Robinson are one of the UK’s leading timber merchants supplying timber to the trade industry since 1914. Timber is processed using technologically advanced machinery and techniques to include sawn, machined, timber treatment and priming before being used in the relevant trade industries. Following their commitment to install solar power at their Salford site many of their processes will now be powered by the sun.
The 200 KWp Solar system installed by Energy Gain UK Ltd will produce approx. 170,000 units of electricity per annum and 3,335,400 units of electricity over the next 20 years. This is the equivalent of powering 48 homes for 1 year. The solar panels will off set over 1,167,390 kg of CO2 over the next 20 years.
GE Robinsons, Paul Kavanagh commented “It’s important for us to be an environmentally friendly company so the installation of these solar panels has been something that we’ve had planned for a long time. Rising energy prices and the environmental benefits will be extremely beneficial to our business and we hope the impact of solar power will encourage more companies to take this route too.”
Energy Gain UK, Craig Jones commented “We are proud to be working with a such a long standing company in the North West. GE Robinson’s commitment to the environment is fantastic for today and the generations to come. Hopefully this installation encourages other businesses to consider Solar Power and to help reduce costs and while reducing their carbon footprint.”
