An Ashington firm has been awarded the tender to install a large scale solar installation in its hometown.
Saving Energy Renewables North East has been awarded the tender to install a 224 kw commercial solar system by Arch, The Northumberland Development Company.
Saving Energy will be completing a 500 square metre solar PV installation across three of Arch’s commercial buildings located at the Wansbeck Workspace in Ashington.
Managing director, Garry Coulson, said: “This is an exciting project for Saving Energy and demonstrates our on-going commitment to helping companies install energy efficiency measures that will not only help to save the environment, but also allow for significant savings to be made on future electricity bills.
“We have been greatly impressed by Arch’s continued focus to invest in renewable energy measures that provide both their business tenants and residents with the chance to significantly reduce their energy bills by up to 50% through the installation of energy efficiency measures such as solar PV. It is great that Arch see the real benefits and considerable value in their investment.
“Securing a second contract to a company of such high calibre as Arch is a real privilege and a great reflection of the proven capabilities of Saving Energy.”
It is expected the project will be fully completed in just under 12 weeks and the company has already engaged with local companies who will support in the installation works.
