J & J Carter Switches to Renewable Solar Energy Source

At J & J Carter, we are always looking for new ways to reduce our environmental impact. We recognise the importance of sustainable development and ensure our activities help minimise our carbon footprint.

A key area of our sustainable development includes the recent introduction of solar panels on the roofs of our warehouse. We are working with Hive Energy, who are one of the UK’s recognised leading developers of solar energy on commercial rooftops and solar parks in order to further reduce our environmental impact.

Using the solar panels as a renewable energy source, we aim to minimise our CO2 emissions whilst saving energy and in the long term - money on our utilities. The solar panels we have had installed are all designed by Hive’s in-house team, who have over five years of experience in solar engineering. 

What are the benefits? 

  • Long term renewable energy source
  • Reduce electricity bills
  • Reduce carbon footprint
  • Energy independence
  • Low maintenance costs



This demonstrates the benefits of using solar panels in a report collected each day, which illustrates how the panels are positively reducing our impact on the environment i.e. in 1 day we saved the equivalent of 6 trees in energy!
