Continuing to invest in the future and the environment, Ripple has recently had a new eco-friendly roof installed on its main Greenacres Road building. This has taken the EPC efficiency rating from 124 down to 64, not bad for a 170-year-old weaving shed! And then, (literally) on top of that added a 50-Kilowatt, solar PV system which is projected to generate around 45,000 Kw and reduce operating costs by over £7,000 per annum for the next 20 years.
Ripple appointed ERS to implement the new roof and PV system which was completed over a 12-week programme.
Ripple MD David commented "Throughout the process ERS have been superb, they share Ripple's values and provide 1st class customer service. This has been a substantial investment, protecting the future of Ripple. The main building houses the design and management team and manufacturing facilities which includes the engineering department, CNC machine and joinery shop, powder coating, wet-spray and assembly."
