Packaging production powered by the sun
The 1,520 solar panel installation at our facilities in Port Glasgow is the largest in the Inverclyde area and, at 375kW, it is 150 times the size of an average residential install producing in excess of 400,000 kwh of electricity in a year (enough to power 161 homes).
Our on-site manufacturing processes are energy intensive. The array of solar panels, spanning two of the main factories, cover one third of our electricity requirements with clean energy during the day and returns energy to the national grid out of hours and at weekend.
Since 2015, 33% of our electricity has come from solar energy.
CO2 savings since installation:
765 tonnes of CO2 saved, equivalent to 97,562,150 smartphones charged
Our goal is to increase our use of renewable energy in the future.
