Texfelt, with the support of the REBiz Programme, have taken the next step in their commitment towards sustainability with the installation of solar panels on the vast expanse of roof on their Springbond manufacturing facility.
Harvest Green Developments have installed a 269kWp capacity system which represents a huge saving of 80 tonnes of co2 per annum contributing towards offsetting Texfelt’s carbon emissions.
Solar Photovoltaics (PV) contribute towards driving the UK towards their targets of generating electricity from renewable sources. It is freely available and with the advances in technology, it is now possible to harness even more of this continuous energy stream. Solar energy has the least negative impact on the environment compared to any other energy source. It does not produce greenhouse gasses, does not pollute water and does not create any noise pollution was an important factor for Texfelt, being located close to a residential area.
Solar energy is a sustainable energy and the installation of the solar panels represents a huge step forward for Texfelt in terms of their ongoing mission to be accountable for their own sustainability and their overall impact on the environment.
This wouldn’t have been possible without the help of the Resource Efficient Business (REBiz) programme, which is delivered by the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) in partnership with the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and York & North Yorkshire (YNY) Local Enterprise Partnership, and part funded from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Northern Powerhouse Growth Deal. Through support from service Texfelt has now been able to scale up their sustainable goals and drive their ambition to lower impact on the environment
