Generating our own power to be used in our own buildings is a practical way that Care Plus Group can reduce our carbon footprint and do our part in minimising our environmental impact. Solar panels like the ones on our headquarters mean that we are taking less power from the grid.
Since installation of our 30kW of solar panels in 2015 we have now generated over 200,000 kWh of electricity from our photovoltaic panels on the Val Waterhouse Centre representing a saving of almost 50 tonnes of CO2 going into the atmosphere.
To put this into perspective 200,000 kWh will power an electric vehicle for over 800,000 miles or the electricity demand of a three bedroom house for over 65 years.
This is all part of our Green CPG plan
