The recovery from COVID-19 should be focused on securing a sustainable, equitable and resilient future. There are six climate actions that need to underpin this recovery. ll eyes and energies are rightly on the COVID-19 pandemic – the biggest test the world has faced since the Second World War. The impact of the coronavirus…
JT Atkinson Case Study
JT Atkinson requested a plan to reduce their energy consumption and carbon footprint across all their sites. Energy Oasis quickly ascertained that solar PV would help them to achieve their goals of creating energy on site, and providing a revenue which would be index linked and paid for over 20 years with a 7 year ROI. We installed 30kW solar PV systems on 25 of their sites and 1 site of 50kW.
Our energy monitoring identified saving opportunities that included changes to heating arrangements and the installation of intelligent LED lighting across all their sites. The UK manufactured LED lights we choose to install have individual controls that have the day light harvesting feature to minimise consumption. A hand held controller allows the lux levels and the PIRs to be adjusted remotely.
The lighting retro fit reduced the consumption on the majority of sites by 80%. The overall outcome of the project so far is that each site receives approximately £3,400 a year in feed-in tariff and deemed export. The electricity consumption on each site is now approximately £3,150 from a previous average of £12,000-14,000.
