As part of the ongoing work towards a carbon neutral future, Wollens have recently had a 70 kwh solar panel system installed at their Barnstaple office in Roundswell.
Working in conjunction with their landlords, Bristol & Western Properties, and Your Eco UK, work began on the installation in late May and was completed in early June.
Clive Meredith, Practice Director commented,
“As members of Planet Mark we’ve committed the firm to a year-on-year reduction in our carbon footprint of 5%. As part of our strategy, we knew solar would play a vital part in our ongoing reductions. Working with Your Eco UK, and Roger Blake from Bristol and West Properties, we have a system that more than meets our energy needs. With the incredible weather we’ve been having we’ve been exporting 70% back to the grid. We’re extremely grateful to be working with such progressive landlords on this project whose environmental aspirations align perfectly with our own.”

Amanda Spicer, Director for Your Eco UK commented “By investing in renewable energy, law firms not only demonstrate their commitment to sustainability but also promote a cleaner and healthier future for their communities.
