As an environmentally conscious company, with an existing commercially sized solar panel array on the roof of their premises, Offsite Solutions were keen to explore additional options for reducing carbon emissions, saving money and improving the workplace environment. Forest Electrical Services Ltd conducted a site survey and energy audit, completed a lighting design to suit the task orientated production facility and discussed funding and grant options available.
