In a drive to help reduce the carbon footprint and energy consumption of the production
facilities at the site in Paignton, Devon. Claron has invested in a Solar Photovoltaic system.
The purpose designed system by Devon Eco Energy has been installed to
make better use of the available roof space with the latest high specification renewable energy solution.
The new system consists of 144 Solarworld AG Sunmodules and two Power One Auroua 3 phase
inverters giving a total generating capacity of 36Kw. This will help lower the Claron carbon footprint by 42tonnes of CO² a year.
Designed with an East West configuration this system will give a better energy pattern through the day to align with production
rather than just peak power at midday.
Intuition energy monitoring has also been installed to record the generation and manufacturing usage patterns throughout the day.
This monitoring solution will also help in the on going work to reduce the energy bills in the future.
