MGS Goes Solar!


MGS recently had nearly 800 Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Panels installed by Evogreen Plc at the Bury St Edmunds and Coventry sites, and also at MGS’s sister company Geosense, a supplier of geotechnical and structural monitoring products.  Geosense’s new solar panels greatly complement their ground source heat pump, which provides heating  that is free of carbon emissions.

The Solar PV panels at the three MGS and Geosense buildings will generate around 180,000kWh of electricity, which is approximately enough to power 41 homes for one year.  MGS is also working on other projects to install more efficient heating and LED lighting, and to also set up procedures for monitoring and reporting energy consumption and environmental impacts.

MGS is very excited to have significantly lowered its carbon footprint and become a more environmentally conscious organisation.
