Cheshire networking suppliers are finalising plans to install one of Manchester’s largest commercial solar panel installations.

The 50kW system, to be installed on the roof of the firm’s new Poynton premises by The Green Electrician group, will provide for all of ICP Networks electrical power requirements.

Comprised of over 65 individual panels, it is anticipated that the system, which will be completed by February of next year, will also supply surplus power back into the national grid.

Since the establishment of the company in the Cheshire town of Wilmslow a decade ago, has developed into one of the North West’s foremost providers of new and refurbished networking and server-room equipment from all principal manufacturers, such as Cisco, Checkpoint (Nokia), Sun, Nortel, BlueCoat and HP ProCurve.

And Managing Director Matthew Archer believes that his firm’s investment in the scheme only reiterates commitment to Green IT.

“The concept of Green IT has been the cornerstone of what we’ve been working towards over the years, whether we’ve been helping our customers recover value in their old stock through reclaimation and remarketing or recycling end-of-life networking equipment to WEEE standards,” said Mr Archer.

“The design and installation of this system is just another extension of that.”

“As all of our own power needs will be catered for by this system, we’re proud and excited to be able to continue doing our all to reduce our impact on the environment,” added Matt.

However, the installation of the new solar panel system only forms part of strategy for sustainable quality and best practice.

“Having recently attained our ISO9001:2008, we’re currently working towards our next accreditation, ISO14001:2004” added Mr Archer.

"We're confident that our customers will continue to see the benefits of our commitment to quality."
