The Mayor of Great Yarmouth, Councillor Graham Plant, switched on 224 brand-new solar panels installed on the roof of our headquarters yesterday (19th December 2022).
The panels are the first phase of a project that will see a total of more than 400 solar panels installed to help us on our road to net zero carbon emissions.
Partly funded by a grant from the Eastern New Energy (ENE) Programme, the’ new solar panels have a total capacity of 80 KW connected to a 50 KW battery, providing enough clean energy to meet more than half of the company’s annual demand.
A local employer for 44 years, we are committed to reducing our environmental footprint, with initiatives including the upgrade of all lights at our HQ to LEDs which reduced annual energy consumption by 30% and the installation of electric car charging points in 2022 alone.
“We take our impact on the environment very seriously as hitting net zero is an important goal for us all at GeoAcoustics, and reducing our dependence on the national grid is a milestone step on our journey ” said GeoAcoustics’ General Manger, Richard Dowdeswell.
“We’re proud to help the worldwide research community acquire the data they need using our technology and be an environmentally responsible company. I hope that our green initiatives can inspire other local companies to act on reducing their dependence on fossil fuels produced energy,” concluded Richard,
