Family food distributor and supply chain specialist, Oakland International, has enhanced its green credentials significantly through a new solar installation increasing their roof top energy generation output capability at their Seafield site to a mega 433kWp.

In generating terms the installation equates to an 183kWp system, previously 150kWp, bringing Oakland’s rooftop solar harnessing capacity to 433kWp. Oakland’s application of green technologies doesn’t stop at solar generation but incorporates a whole host of energy and renewable schemes; an electric car and 5 bicycles, LED lighting, efficient radiators, cardboard and plastic recycling, Oakland’s own energy efficient reed bed system and on-site sewage treatment plant, which uses less energy than conventional sewage treatment methods with emissions then further reduced by energy efficient warehouse chillers. Oakland’s combined production from solar in 2014 amounted to 188,345.2kW, with a 90% levy on energy charges and a reduction in energy costs.
