Plumbs have over 60 years experience in made to measure furniture products such as loose covers and re-upholstery fabrics. Renewing and revitalising their customers furniture demonstrates Plumbs upcycling ethos which has now influenced the management of their business energy.
In response, the company has installed a fully funded Solar system that has allowed them to reduce the cost of their electricity whilst having a positive impact on the environment.
Plumbs had zero-capital outlay for the rooftop project through entering into a long-term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) funded through Eden Sustainable Investments. Plumbs then purchase the electricity generated from the solar system at a reduced rate compared to their current electricity price giving significant financial savings along with long term carbon reduction (CO2 savings).
CAPACITY: 294.36 kW
NUMBER OF PANELS: 892
PRODUCTION: 215,417 kWh/y
CO2 SAVINGS: 129,250 kg/year
Over the term of the agreement projected savings to the company will be £351,850 and the system will produce over 5,134,717kWh.
Solar PV is a fantastic opportunity for Plumbs to not only make significant savings on their electricity bills but also make a stand against climate change and move towards a sustainable future.
Brownlow aims to assist companies and organisations like Plumbs to maximise their existing sites with renewable solutions and further their ambitious green credentials and carbon reduction strategy.

“A major part of Plumbs business is renewing and revitalising our customers much loved furniture via re-upholstery or replacement covers, therefore it sort of fits with the Plumbs upcycling ethos to grasp the opportunity to reduce our carbon footprint via a renewable energy source. The power generated by the solar panels initiative is equal to 34% of our electricity consumption and we can all be proud that the new solar project and our recent Veolia confirmation that we send zero waste to landfill have boosted our green credentials.”
