Being in industrial manufacturing means that there is a high requirement for energy to run large machines in both our printing and conversion halls.
In 2015 we embarked upon a project to install a large solar farm on our site here in Horncastle. We worked with Freewatt a local independent solar products installer to establish a solar farm that could deliver up to 33% of our energy requirements. We installed almost 1,000 solar panels on undeveloped land adjacent to our factory, using world leading solar management technology, and on June 30th 2015 we began generating our own electricity.
The facility is estimated to save the environment more than 100 tonnes of carbon per annum and the more the sun shines the less carbon is needed to operate the factory.
" We are proud of our team at Forum Packaging for their commitment and determination to help the company develop and grow. "
