Latest Manor Royal Press Releases
Manor Royal business on path to becoming Carbon neutral
Fleming Way-based Avensys has completed work on its state-of-the-art Panasonic rooftop solar system.
The work at the consumer electronic store will provide it with reliable, clean energy and significantly reduce its CO2 emissions. The installation features 200 Panasonic HIT solar modules, which reach a peak power of 48 kW.
The completed system extends Panasonic's partnership with Avensys, which is home to one of Panasonic's official consumer stores offering the latest technology and products from the Japanese electronics giant to consumers in the South East.
Markus Wood, Avensys' founder, said improving environmental performance was an important priority for the company this year.
"Since moving into our new premises in Manor Royal last year, we had a strong desire to become a leading environmentally conscious and sustainable business," he said.
"By installing Panasonic's high-efficiency solar panels, we've been able to maximise the clean energy we're generating on a day-to-day basis, reducing our energy bills and decreasing our impact on the local environment."
Since completing the system in March, Panasonic has also selected Avensys to launch its virtual solar platform, one of only three stores in the UK to do so.
The platform empowers visitors to make an informed decision about installing a solar system on their home by enabling them to virtually design a solar system on their roof.
The platform then uses information from existing neighbouring solar systems to provide users with an accurate estimate on how much it would take to install a system, savings they can make on their electricity bills, and earnings they make from sending surplus energy back to the grid.
Daniel Roca, Panasonic's UK country manager, said: "We're delighted to expand our partnership with Avensys this year. After delivering a high-efficiency solar system through our HIT modules earlier in the year, the opportunity to launch our virtual solar service in the Avensys store and bring this software to South East homeowners was a natural one for Panasonic."
