When Synectics Solutions moved into their Hamil Road offices in Stoke-on-Trent they were very excited about making use of their new vast roof space and generating their own solar power.
Synectics Solutions were looking to reduce costs and improve their sustainability and they chose Geo Green Power as their preferred supplier because the solution we proposed did both, and offered the best value for money. Their office now has a 229kW solar PV system comprising of 764 solar panels, it will generate 194MWh of electricity and save 88 tonnes of CO2 every year.
Nathan Clews, Synectics Facilities Team Manager, was delighted with how the installation went. He said: “Throughout the whole process Geo Green Power communicated effectively with the project manager and stakeholders to ensure the process was flawlessly managed.
“The team worked tirelessly to complete the installation of 764 solar panels, along with all cabling and ancillaries within 3 weeks from start to finish. The installation team were a pleasure to have on site, causing no disturbance to the business and kept noise to a minimum.”
Synectic’s Hamil Road office houses 300 employees who sustain their fraud detection software solutions, this requires a complex power distribution. The solar PV system that now powers the building will be offsetting 40% of the office’s electricity demand and saving Synectics around £2,000 every month.
As they continue their green energy journey, Synectics have chosen Geo Green Power to implement a project to extend the number of electric vehicle charging bays on offer to their employees.
Nathan added: “We are delighted to be in a position where we are reducing our CO2 emissions and making a significant difference for the environment.”
