Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd are a digital thermometer and datalogger manufacturing company based in East Worthing. Their mission is to go green and even net zero between 2025 and 2030.
The Community Solar Accelerator grant programme was able to provide a grant of £21,960 for their 75.53kW solar PV installation, which will get them closer to achieving their sustainability goals.
Electronic Temperature Instruments have a pitched East/West-facing roof which will generate electricity throughout the day.
“Our solar panel installation is now complete and is already saving us money and long term, we anticipate the system will provide around 80% of the sites energy needs.
Brighton Energy Co-operative were helpful, professional and a pleasure to deal with. They clearly talked us through each step of the grant application and provided regular progress updates. The grant process was straightforward thanks to the support and advice from BEC and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services.” Nicky Dumbleton, CSR Co-ordinator
