Kingsland Wines are the UKs leading suppliers of wines and spirits, distributing over 70 million litres per year, their new solar system reinforces their already strong environmental stance producing up to 70% of electricity needs during peak irradiance levels and significantly reduced dependence on fossil fuels, cutting CO2 emissions by over 114 tonnes/yr. The company won the Green Award for Salford as a result of the project.


CLIENTS VIEW: “iGen were chosen as they were able to demonstrate their expertise on similar sized industrial installations and because of their refreshingly transparent approach. Other installations they had completed in the area enabled their payback forecasts to be validated and all the companies that were approached spoke highly of iGen’s professionalism and quality of work. These characteristics have been demonstrated right through this installation and commissioning”. Nigel Smith - Kingsland Wines
