NEB UK Sustainability Initiative

We are now generating some of our own electricity with roof-top solar panels.

As you can imagine, keeping our products in cold storage requires quite a lot of energy so we’ve been looking at how we can be as energy-efficient as possible. Our warehouse uses A++ rated energy-efficient freezers but we thought there was more we could do. We performed an energy audit and identified the opportunity to make good use of our roof. In August 2018 during the longest spell of hot, sunny weather in many years, we commissioned a 30 kwh solar roof-top installation. Our panels are now busy generating approximately 23% of the electricity required to run the NEB UK office and warehouse and we’ve avoided the generation of 3.3 tonnes of CO2 in just the first 45 days.
