This year, Silson has installed a 39.12 kW system of Solar PV on the roof of our building, to offset a large proportion of our energy usage!
In just 6 months we have generated 26 Mwh, which equates to an estimated 5.2 tonnes of CO2 saved!
Huge thanks to the team at KS Connexions for the efficient installation and support since.
We received a grant for the installation from the Coventry and Warwickshire Green Business Programme. The Coventry and Warwickshire Green Business Programme is partly funded by the European Regional Development Fund and is being delivered by Coventry City Council, Coventry University, and Coventry University Enterprises Ltd.
A high-tech company that sells its cutting edge products across the globe has been hailed by an MP as a shining example of how regional support can help a business of any size to achieve its ambitions.
Southam-based Silson, which makes ultra-thin membranes for use in science around the world, has just celebrated its 25th anniversary with the unveiling of the latest phase of its development.
Funding for this project is the result of a successful grant application to the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) under the CWLEP Business Development priority.
This funding, managed by the Rural Payments Agency, part financed the development of the first floor of the company’s headquarters into office space and further laboratories.
