Forbes Complete Solar Panel Installation

Forbes Complete Solar Panel Installation
03/07/2015

Forbes solar installation is now complete at their Crimplesham site, and has this week been switched live. The installation has taken around four weeks to complete courtesy of Active Renewables of Evesham, Worcestershire.

The new 205kW output installation consists of a total of 820 ground mounted solar panels. Forbes Group has a large energy demand from their injection moulding machines which run 24/7, and the solar panels will supply up to 100% of the total energy used on site.

Lee Forbes, Company Chairman, explains;

“This investment will not only significantly reduce our carbon footprint, with the rise in electricity costs and our high constant use of electricity, the payback time will be relatively short. The company is continually looking for ways in saving energy. An example of this approach can be seen in our injection mould shop, which has a clever automated control system to maintain the shop floor at a minimum of 20°C using the waste heat generated by the moulding process. Since the development of the injection moulding facility in 2006 we have not required any external heating source such as gas, oil or electricity.”
