Camstar Herbs have been growers and producers of herbs, spices and seeds since 1899. They are one of the largest producers of dried parsley in Europe, with over 2,500 acres dedicated to that crop alone. Camstar Herbs have already demonstrated commitment to internal decarbonisation through the purchase of more efficient harvesters and transportation vehicles, and in 2020, furthered this commitment by investing in on-site renewable generation.   

 At Chestnut’s Farm, Suffolk, a 260 kWp solar photovoltaic system was installed onto the main operating warehouse of Camstar Herbs. The system capitalises on the high irradiance levels in the area, producing a significant proportion of their daylight power requirements. The system is forecasted to generate 243,100 kWh annually, resulting in a reduced energy expenditure and carbon footprint by the corresponding amount. Annually, this system is expected to reduce their carbon output by 57 tonnes CO2. To put that into perspective, it is the equivalent to the emissions per passenger of 27 return flights from London-New York.  

“I am writing to recommend energy gain for their professional attitude and service in the supply and installation of our 260KW PV Cell system.

Craig, John and the guys were knowledgeable, friendly, professional and helpful throughout, and the project was delivered on time and as described.
