Parfetts rolls out LED lighting and solar panels to reduce carbon footprint

Solar panels are installed at a Parfetts depot.

Parfetts is rolling out LED lighting and solar panels at its depots across the UK.

The programme sees new LED lighting installed in the Halifax and Sheffield depots, with Anfield to follow. Solar panel installation is now complete at the wholesaler’s warehouses in Sheffield, Anfield and Stockport, and additional solar panels are being installed at the Halifax site.

Investment in solar panels will see Parfetts benefit from a reduction in energy charges from 72p per unit (daytime rate) to 16.5p per unit.

Parfetts is also seeking greener mobility options: 5% of its corporate fleet is currently made up of electric vehicles and it is putting new investment in a routing system that will reduce emissions from daily deliveries.

Guy Swindell, joint managing director of Parfetts, commented: “Parfetts is committed to lowering its carbon footprint and is investing in the latest technologies to deliver rapid change. The move to LED lighting, solar panels and greener mobility will deliver significant savings that will help us deliver great value to our customers and maintain their margins in a tough economic environment.”

Parfetts teamed up with Solar Crown Commercial to roll out solar PV panels and with Procure Direct to install LED lighting across its estate.
