Leeds-based Imagco has partnered with renewable energy company Planet-U Energy to implement a range of sustainable solutions to help it reduce the carbon output of its Holbeck site by more than 30,000 tonnes per year.
Planet-U’s consultants initially negotiated a new renewable energy contract for Imageco. Following a full site energy audit, Planet-U’s engineers then installed 84 tier one photovoltaic solar panels to the site’s roof space, which will generate an estimated £6,000 of renewable energy annually.
Planet-U also fitted a voltage optimiser, a technology that lowers excess voltage by regulating the incoming power supply, which provided a further £9,000 in annual savings. In total, the solutions will generate savings of up to £225,000 over the next five years.
Discussing the firm’s transition to renewable energy solutions, Imageco founder Nathan Swinson-Bullough said: “At Imageco, we understand the importance of sustainability so partnering with Planet-U made perfect sense. The technology of voltage optimisation and solar power will see us reduce our CO2 output to make us one of the most sustainable print companies in the industry. Not only is this benefiting the environment, but it is a great USP and a powerful marketing tool for us.”
