Reducing reliance on mains power

Trailer manufacturer Lawrence David is the kind of business that really benefits from solar power.

Building HGV trailers uses a lot of energy, so reducing its reliance on mains power is a straightforward way to cut carbon and save money.

  • Commercial rooftop solar array
  • Power purchase agreement delivering cheaper electricity
  • 350 tonnes of CO2 year saved each year
  • Bills cut by up to 30%

Save on bills and emissions

Olympus Power designed and installed a 50KW roof-mounted solar power system for the business in 2014.

In 2019 we went back to the Peterborough HQ and started work on a larger 530kW system. Built and installed as part of a power purchase agreement, it didn’t cost Lawrence David a penny, as we own and maintain the system for its working lifespan.

Lawrence David then buys electricity from Olympus Power for less than it would be charged on a utility’s commercial tariff. It’s saving between 20% and 30% in bills, which adds up to a sizeable annual sum. And because it’s 100% renewable power, the business is saving 350 tonnes of CO2 every year.

Welcome energy savings

Simplicity at zero cost

Finance Director at Lawrence David, Paul Yallop said “Olympus fitted our first solar install in 2014, and it was such a good experience we got them back in 2019 to extend the system.

Simon and his team were able to deliver both projects with staggering simplicity and at zero cost to our business, providing us with subsidy-free electricity under a 20-year power purchase agreement.

Aside from the welcome savings in energy costs, we’ve reduced our CO2 emissions by over 350 tonnes a year.”
