A MANUFACTURING company has installed 600 solar panels and is now enjoying its days in the sun.

Captec, designers and manufacturers of specialist computer platforms, is now powering its 50,000sq ft Fareham headquarters using sunlight.

We could not be happier with the impact the installation of the solar panels has already had on our company.

Andy Hurley

The installation of hundreds of solar panels, one of the largest in Hampshire, is part of a decision to reduce the business’s electricity consumption, carbon dioxide emissions and financial outlay on power.

Since the installation, Captec, on Whittle Avenue, says it has already noticed significant reductions in energy consumption, using as little as one kilowatt throughout the working day.

Facilities manager Andy Hurley said: ‘We could not be happier with the impact the installation of the solar panels has already had on our company.

‘We are already experiencing substantial benefits from switching to solar energy, benefits we only expect to increase as the summer months draw closer.’
