At WDM we are committed to helping the environment.
Not only are we ISO 14001 accredited, in last year’s refurbishment we installed one-hundred and forty-five solar panels, each generating 30kw/h… a year later and these are now providing a full sixty percent of our electricity needs.
In addition, we’ve also installed a new efficient heating system with a control system to it that regulate it and a temperature sensor outside so it learns what time it needs to come on to get the building to the correct temperature in time for opening. When the heating is on the system turns the burners off 1 in every 4 minutes so it doesn’t affect the output but saves 25% of the gas used.
So far it has reduced our gas usage by nearly 50%.
And we’re going to continue to reduce our energy reliance and help the environment at the same time. Future improvements and switching to LED lighting should see our self-generating electricity figure increased to seventy-five percent within the next twelve months.
