Renewable energy company Solarwall has produced ‘The Carbon Counter’, a regularly updated online application that shows the amount of carbon emission tonnage Solarwall is helping to save.
Since opening for business in 1977 Solarwall has worked tirelessly to help reduce carbon emissions across Yorkshire and Humberside. For the majority of that time carbon reduction has been achieved by loft and wall insulation, but since the introduction of solar energy systems, ground and air source heat pumps, it has been conservatively estimated that Solarwall has saved over 1,500,000 tonnes of CO². This equates to roughly the same amount of carbon that the entirety of Russia produces each year.*
The counter, which is available to view on the newly published website of Solarwall’s Energy Centre (www.theenergycentreyork.co.uk), will update each week as the company completes yet more alternative energy projects.
The website, which features details of the facilities and products Solarwall’s Clifton-based Energy Centre can provide, also contains information on the current amount of carbon saved as well hints and tips on how to calculate one’s own ‘carbon footprint’. The website hosts the online ‘Eco-Shop’, where customers can buy affordable energy products for the home, which at this time of year make fantastic Christmas gifts.
Renewables Director Grant Henderson, said of The Carbon Counter: ‘After working for many years on thousands of insulation and energy projects, it is extremely rewarding to see the actual figure of what Solarwall has achieved. I look forward to seeing the amount on the website increase each week and believe it will be a big help for people looking to save energy and money on their heating bills.’
As the work continues, and as the calculations become increasingly more accurate, the number on the Carbon Counter will hopefully get larger and larger - accompanied by information on what that figure actually relates to in the real world. Check back on a regular basis to see the number grow!
