St Austell Business Park: Powered by the sun.
Sustainability and looking after the environment is high on our list of priorities. That’s why we’re pleased to announce that St Austell Business Park is now powered by it’s own solar power array.
Installed by our parent company St Austell Printing Company, it’s part of one of the largest roof-based solar panel arrays in Cornwall which generates power for the printing factory, business park and our Conference Centre.
A total of 441 panels across two buildings at Carclaze will generate an impressive 130,000kWh per year – the equivalent of 40 domestic solar PV systems. It’s hoped that the 150kWp system will present a carbon-saving of at least 45 tonnes per year.
This is the latest in a long list of sustainability achievements for St Austell Business Park. We have an ‘Excellent’ BREEAM rating – the world’s leading sustainability assessment for buildings. By harvesting water and housing a grass topped roof we’re fusing efficiency, ecology and excellence to bring you a business park that stands out.
