The Stroud group of companies has accelerated its adoption of green initiatives to bring forward its 2025 Best In Class zero-carbon energy targets, to mid-2022! The first phase will see 900 solar panels installed upon the Stroud Metal facility roof and completed by the end of May 2022. The second phase will see a further 700 panels installed by the end of July 2022.
By the end of July this year we will be generating over 800kw of on-site solar power, equating to over a third of our total electrical energy usage, equivalent to us saving 163 tonnes of carbon emissions or planting almost 7,500 trees. By running a 7 day work pattern, we will also be benefiting from every on-site sunshine generated kilowatt we create, only feeding power back to the national grid during national holidays. The residue of our electricity consumption already comes from 100% renewable resources.
