Mitsubishi Motors in the UK headquarters
Tackling rising energy costs
Based in Cirencester, the Mitsubishi Motors in the UK headquarters site includes offices, warehouses and IT server rooms; energy bills were becoming a concern. Glevum’s feasibility report recommended a roof mounted solar PV system. The performance is monitored online and displayed within the reception area, demonstrating the company’s commitment to the environment.
Today, the system is generating 14% more energy than predicted making real inroads into energy costs. Mitsubishi use 100% of the generated energy with each unit generated having a benefit of 23.5p*
13.5p paid via the government’s Feed In Tariff scheme, quarterly in arrears, RPi linked for 20 years and 10p import costs saved for every unit used on site.
