Portland Lighting, along with other F.W.Thorpe sites, selected Ineco Energy, not only due to the team’s expertise in designing and installing quality solar PV technology but to also benefit from lifetime support and ongoing monitoring of the system. Ineco Energy undertook a full site analysis to determine the best size of the system suited to current and future energy requirements.
Quick delivery was essential for this installation as the manufacturing site is busy from early morning until late evening, so it was important that there was minimal disruption.
With such high energy demand, it was really important for Portland Lighting to reduce reliance on polluting fossil fuels by switching to a greener renewable energy source. The new solar PV system delivers key environmental benefits, along with financial benefits which are an additional bonus.
