Bury St Edmunds firm a step closer to carbon neutral goal thanks to new solar panels
Bury St Edmunds printing firm Denny Bros is a step closer to becoming carbon neutral after installing a new array of solar panels.
The installation at Kempson Way of the 150kW array should cut the company’s carbon footprint by 10 per cent and draw an income of about £12,000 each year.
It was made possible following a £20,000 grant from Business Energy Efficiency (BEE) Anglia, which provides free support to organisations to help them become more energy efficient.
Graham Denny, managing director of Denny Bros, said: “We’ve already more than halved our carbon footprint and this latest investment in additional solar PV will see us moving very close to our long-term goal of being carbon neutral.
“We would like to thank BEE Anglia for generously supporting our plans.”
With high demand from businesses, a further £700,000 is being made available to support energy efficiency across Suffolk and Norfolk.
Cllr Richard Rout, Suffolk County Council’s cabinet member for environment, said the investment will help businesses cut bills at a time of rising energy costs.
