TG Lynes’ solar system saves equivalent of 1,500 trees

The solar PV system at the Enfield base of the heating, plumbing and air movement materials supplier was switched on two years ago.

TG Lynes have revealed the solar PV system has so far saved 25,129.03 kg of carbon.

Andrew Ingram, managing director at TG Lynes said: “The investment in this state of the art solar PV system was a significant move by the business. We knew in theory that the panels would make a significant den in our carbon footprint and would help us be more self-sufficient.

“Two years on and we now have solid data to work from and I am absolutely delighted that they have performed so well and are making such a huge contribution towards the business’ overall energy consumption.

“Coupled with the low-consumption LED lights that were installed at the same time, we have saved well in excess of 30,000 kg of carbon.”

The solar panels have produced in excess of 130 MWh of electricity and are currently providing more than 35% of the energy required for the business’ operations. A total of 24.25 MWh has been returned to the grid, helping to meet the nation’s ever-increasing demand for energy.

Ingram also said: “We are doing fantastic work to get the business moving towards a truly sustainable future. We have made huge strides over the last few yeas and have plans to keep progressing by looking at every aspect of our operations, from energy to delivery and sourcing stock to waste.”

The company have also introduced other sustainable initiatives such as switching to Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil in two of its 18 ton Euro six vehicles and introducing 100% recycled workwear.
