Walraven installs solar panels!

Published on: 12 July 2023

As part of our sustainability plan we have recently installed a total of 229 solar panels on the roof of our premises in Banbury. We hope to generate 30-35% of our power from these panels which will help towards reducing our carbon footprint.

Recently, the global push for renewable energy has gained significant momentum, with solar power emerging as a leading contender. Solar panels are revolutionising the way we generate electricity. By converting sunlight into clean sustainable energy, solar panels offer a multitude of benefits for both individuals and the planet as a whole.

So what advantages can solar panels bring?

Renewable and sustainable energy

Solar panels harness the abundant energy provided by the sun, a limitless source! Unlike fossil fuels which contribute to climate change and deplete natural sources, solar power offers a sustainable alternative that can meet our energy needs without harming the environment. By installing solar panels, we’ve reduced our reliance on non-renewable energy and contributing to a greener future for Walraven.

Cost savings and financial incentives

While the initial investment of installing solar panels may seem significant, they offer long-term cost savings. Solar energy allows homeowners and businesses to generate their own electricity, reducing or even eliminating their dependence on the grid. As a result, electricity bills can be significantly reduced or eliminated altogether.

Energy independence and reliability

Solar panels provide a level of energy independence, allowing individuals and communities to generate their own electricity. This independence is particularly valuable during power outages or in remote areas where grid access may be limited. With solar panels, you can have a reliable source of electricity, even during emergencies.

Environmental benefits

Solar panels produce clean energy with no harmful emissions, contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. By choosing solar power, we actively combat climate change and protect the environment for future generations.

Low maintenance and long life span

Solar panels are durable and have a long lifespan, typically ranging from 25 to 30 years or more. They require minimal maintenance, with occasional cleaning to remove dust and debris. With no moving parts, the risk of mechanical failure is significantly reduced, resulting in lower maintenance costs and hassle-free operation.

In conclusion

Solar panels are revolutionising the energy landscape by providing a clean, sustainable and cost effective source of electricity.  From reducing carbon emissions and saving money on electricity bills to achieving energy independence and contributing to a greener future, the benefits of solar panels are numerous. By embracing solar power, we at Walraven are taking a significant step towards a more sustainable and environmentally friendly world.

Being part of a family company, where long-term thinking comes naturally, we are driven to take responsibility and make a sustainable difference from a human, economic and environmental point of view. Solar power is going to be absolutely essential to meeting growing energy demands while staving off climate change so we must collaborate with nature. This first phase of solar installation for Walraven is a small step in our commitment to collaboration and sustainability.”  Tracey Williams | General Manager
