Renewable energy providers, Green Shield Group, have been appointed by Sandal Wakefield BMW to deliver a 236.57 kWp solar system across their showroom site facilitated by Green Technologies.
The install which will save over £65,000 per year will reduce carbon emissions by 37,810 kg per year with an estimated annual yield of nearly 200,000 kWh.
The Solar PV system will generate the equivalent of 1,737 trees being planted on an annual basis.
Jonathan Harrison, Managing Director at Green Shield Group said:
“It has been great to work with the team at Sandal Wakefield BMW understanding why they want to increase their sustainability pledge and the objectives behind this.
“We have supported in significantly reducing Sandal Wakefield BMW’s grid reliance whilst effectively reducing the businesses energy rates providing long term savings, we are looking forward to continuing working with the team to further reduce their carbon footprint.”
Jason Carter of Sandal Wakefield BMW said:
“The Solar PV system we have had fitted here at Sandal Wakefield BMW is a long-term investment that will not only help us reduce our CO2 emissions, it will also help in our pledge to become a net-zero operation as we move towards the government’s target of carbon-neutral by 2050.
The team at Green Shield Group have been great in guiding us through the process and we are looking forward to generating our own clean electricity.”
Solar PV modules generate clean electrical power by converting solar radiation into direct current. Inverters then convert DC into grid-compliant alternating current used to power homes, buildings and businesses and utility power is then provided when needed.
