Burger Factory Get the Power

It took just one week for The Burger Manufacturing Company in Builth Wells, Mid Wales, to save £200 on electricity. This huge energy boost is thanks to the installation of Saint-Gobain’s PowerMax strong system, supplied by our Aberystwyth Branch!

The factory had 400 solar PV panels installed on the roof, making it the largest installation of the thin film PowerMax strong system in the UK. The pioneering system not only works up a module efficiency of up to 12.8% but can also take a high snow load of 551kg –this part of Wales can get pretty snowy in Winter!.

Rob South, from Sustainable Building and Energy Ltd, installed the system and said: “We installed the Powermax Strong system in ten days and within one week of it being switched on; the system had helped the company save approximately £200 of electricity. Despite the scale of the project, we managed to complete it on schedule – thanks to the speedy delivery and customer service from the Aberystwyth branch”

Mike Evans, Branch Manager at Aberystwyth, , said: “The team at the branch are pleased to have been a part of this great project. The Powermax Strong system has great aesthetics, as well as a phenomenal yield, which has enhanced the look of the factory and given the business a source of renewable energy that will help lower its running costs.”
