Silver Fox creates savings out of thin air
Labelling solutions manufacturer Silver Fox has invested in solar power as part of its commitment to the environment and also to take advantage of subsidies available through the UK’s Feed-in Tariff (FiT), to save on utility bills.Using one of the smallest commercial PV systems in the UK, Silver Fox has generated 1,000kW of electricity in less than six months. The 4kWp rooftop system comprises of just 16 Tenesol PV panels and is generating serious revenue while at the same time allowing a reduction in utility bills at an impressive rate.
‘We are astonished by how much power the system generates,’ said Nick Michaelson, CEO of Silver Fox. ‘A lot of people think the UK has no sun but even over the winter months our system has proved its worth. And we’ve discovered that PV systems still generate electricity when the sun is hiding behind the clouds.’
Completed in September 2011, installation took just three days and was carried out by Tenesol’s local installation partner J Brand, an electrical contractor.
