Solar Installation Phase One
28 September 2023
QK-TEX use recycled materials in their lightweight panel products, and renewable energy is the next step in their carbon reduction plan.
Equivalent to 1,896 trees planted
Manufacturing facilities often have a large expanse of roof that can be given over to a solar PV system and our new factory is a perfect example.
Phase 1 installation comprises 488 solar panels with a forecasted energy production of 213Mwh. Circa 90% of the energy produced by the panels will to be consumed by QK with the balance going back into the Grid. Simulation results indicate 41.28t of CO2 saved, equivalent to 1,896 trees planted.
