APHC goes green with new solar panels

The Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors has taken a step towards sustainability by installing solar panels at its head office in Birmingham to power its operations.

With the installation of the solar panels, the company has significantly reduced its reliance on non-renewable sources of energy and made a commitment to the environment.

The new solar panels will produce clean, renewable energy and help reduce APHC’s carbon footprint. By reducing the amount of fossil fuel-based electricity it uses, the company will help to minimise its impact on the environment, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and preserve natural resources.

APHC understands that sustainability is essential to the future of our planet, and they are proud to be a leader in their industry by taking steps to protect the environment. By investing in solar energy, they are showing their commitment to a cleaner, greener future.

The images show the panels on a wet day in mid-May, but a couple of weeks later, on the warmest day of the year so far, 25thMay, the solar panels generated nearly 200 kilowatts of electricity.

'We are thrilled to be able to power our operations with clean, renewable energy,' said John Thompson, APHC’s CEO. 'The installation of solar panels is a significant step towards reducing our carbon footprint and making a positive impact on the environment. It is our hope that this move will inspire other businesses in our industry to take similar steps towards sustainability.'

The installation of the solar panels was completed by a member company of APHC, ASK Renewable Solutions Ltd.

Adam Killa, director of ASK Renewable Solutions commented: “Electricity is now becoming the chosen solution for additional demands in our lifestyle. The introduction of Heat Pumps, Electric cars and the removal of fossil fuels means that the demand of electricity has increased significantly. Installing your own Solar PV panels can decrease the demand to purchase electricity, which includes bill savings and also reduces your carbon footprint. It was a pleasure working with the team at APHC installing the Solar PV system”.
