North’s largest roof array completed

Liverpool-based Eco Environments has completed what it says is the largest roof-based PV project in the north of England.

The 250 kWh system, containing 1077 Hyundai panels, has been installed on the roof of temperature controlled storage and distribution firm Cold Move at its Warrington site.

Cold Move says the project, which was fully funded by Belvedere Energy Investments, is intended to save 108,658 tonnes of carbon emissions a year and generate 199,740 kWh of electricity annually.

David Hunt, Eco Environments’ sales and marketing director, said: “This is a flagship scheme for Eco Environments and firmly establishes us as one of the leading renewable energy companies for the business community.

“We are witnessing ever increasing interest from businesses in exploring ways in which they can become more energy efficient and tackle the nightmare of crippling energy costs which are now one of the biggest concerns for business owners.”

James Woodward, managing director of Cold Move, added: “We are delighted with the installation by Eco Environments and are already experiencing the environmental and financial benefits of the system.

“We will be seeking out further opportunities to reduce our carbon footprint with the introduction of low emission cars and potentially a wind turbine at one of our sites.”
