EQ’s Office Running Off Grid

PV PanelsEQ’s office is now solar powered with a 3.5kW PV system installed on the roof which powers all the operational needs through daylight hours. We are delighted to be able to reduce our carbon footprint in this manner and see it as our first step on the road to being carbon neutral.

At the other end of the scale the German energy company RWE has revealed plans to install photovoltaic panels with a 37 MW capacity at an old airbase in Oxfordshire.  This will be 144,000 PV panels that will be capable of providing enough power for around 10,000 homes and over its lifetime will save around 380,000 tonnes of carbon.

EQ are hoping for a sunny 2014!
