Altrincham-headquartered property company, Styles & Wood has installed solar across three new health centres in East Lancashire.

The solar arrays have been installed as part of an ongoing sustainability push by the East Lancashire health sector. The solar installs vary in size from 5.1kWp to 50kWp and are predicted to negate the emission of over 25 tonnes of CO2 emissions every year.

The solar arrays were installed to help the new healthcare centres achieve a BREEAM standard of ‘excellent’. The solar arrays are estimated to save Great Harwood Health Centre, Clitheroe Community Hospital and Cole Health Centre almost £4,000 a year on energy bills.

The installs represent a combined contract value of £100,000 and were carried out by the property company’s specialist energy division, Styles & Wood Energy. Commenting on the projects, Ian Dunning, head of Styles & Wood Energy, said: “With energy efficiency and cost saving both remaining high on the NHS’ agenda, these installations will help to demonstrate the savings that can be achieved for relatively modest investment.

“The health sector continues to be an important growth market across all of our divisions as we develop a strong reputation for delivering a range of complex projects, often around live clinical services.”
