Signbox goes Solar

  Recognising that our production processes have an impact in terms of energy usage, this month we have installed nearly 200 square metres of solar photovoltaic panels, generating over 31kW of green energy from our south facing roof. Mark Bartlett, Managing Director of Signbox explains: “Signbox has invested in solar harvesting to provide the bulk of our energy needs during the Spring/Autumn period. This forms an important part of our Environmental Policy to reduce the impact of our business on the environment. We have a south facing roof at an optimal pitch for solar PV. “The capital outlay has a payback period of six years; generating 90% of our energy needs each year. Culturally, this highlights to us all the importance of working towards a carbon neutral process for sign and display production. We continue to develop energy efficient LED illuminated products and by updating our premises to adhere to the latest eco regulations.” Stay tuned for an exciting Drone video of the completed installation of the solar panels!
