The longest established self-storage company in the UK, Space Station, has embraced solar technology, installing PV modules over all five of the company’s sites.

Space Station approached Infinite Energy to help the storage company reduce its energy bills and carbon emissions.

Infinite Energy recommended that Space Station invest in solar PV because of the combined benefit of cheaper utility bills and income from the feed-in tariff. A total of 205kWp of solar capacity, using more than 850 solar panels were installed across all Space Station sites. It is estimated that the solar installations will produce nearly 180,000kWh of energy per annum, an enormous annual saving of over £10,000 on electricity bills. Almost 100 tonnes of CO2 will be saved every year from the operation of the panels.

Kevin Prince, General Manager at Space Station said:  “Infinite Energy completed an efficient, professional installation from start to finish. Their surveys highlighted supplier and planning issues that needed resolving but they dealt with this without any fuss or down-time. It was a big project to undertake but Infinite Energy took the strain and led us through the whole process. I am very pleased we chose them.”

Now that the installation is complete, Infinite Energy is assisting Space Station with their “Greener policies” and has recommended various energy saving measures, including, changing their light bulbs for LED light bulbs to lower consumption.

Sam Tilley, Managing Director of Infinite Energy concludes: “I am so pleased that the multi-installation for Space Station went so smoothly and that they are already reaping the benefits of their solar panel installation.  We will continue supporting Space Station with their greener policy every way we can.”
