The installation is the latest in a string of contract awards for Campbell & Kennedy – Scotland’s largest installers of solar PV.
PHE Colindale is used for research into infectious diseases and microbiology, as well as specialist services such as high containment microbiology and food, water and environmental services.
From the moment the month-long project is completed by the end of this month, PHE will enjoy a reduction in energy consumption, benefit from immediate substantial savings and begin generating long-term profits.
The installation will receive the new Feed-in Tariff rate of 2.64 p/kWh and C&K’s team will manage the entire process from design, installation and commissioning.
Campbell & Kennedy – whose clients include SSE and British Gas – exhibited at a Sustainability Event Day held by PHE last month in London. The event included presentations from the Head of the Sustainable Development Unit for the NHS and PHE, Dr David Pencheon, and from Marc Beveridge, PHE’s Regional Head of Sustainability.
Jason Lowey, Head of Energy, Campbell & Kennedy, said: “We are looking forward to working with PHE and delivering, from concept to completion, the cost-saving and environmental benefits that our cutting-edge solar PV technology provides.
“Campbell & Kennedy has vast experience of installing solar PV for public, private and Third Sector organisations across the UK and we welcome our new partnership with PHE.”
Founded in 1953, Campbell and Kennedy – which grown from a small store in Glasgow to a leading nationwide service provider – has become the latest company to join the Solar Trade Association, which aims to pave the way for solar to deliver the maximum possible share of UK energy by 2030 by enabling a bigger and better solar industry.
