B & E Boys keen to promote Industrial Units and Offices with Green Energy credentials as they pursue Hydro, Wind and PV electric power.
B & E Boys are now in the final stages of lodging a planning application for their J2 Business Park, Hydro electric scheme. The site just on junction 2 of the M66
is bound by the River Roche and offers an ideal opportunity to reduce the Companies carbon footprint. Boys are also recording wind and solar data at their Waters Meeting Business Park with a view to producing Wind generated electricity for its Britannia Office Quarter, and Photo Voltaic generated Electricity for its industrial tenants.
The Government is pursuing the reduction of carbon emission by 30% by 2020 and by 80% in 2050. There is a lot of pressure on electricity generators to clean up their acts with electric production being as low as 30% efficient by the time it
reaches your home. Government targets have been set so that 40% of the Countries electricity is generated by renewable means by 2020. The power companies will have to meet the target or face financial penalties. On site power generation has become more viable with the introduction of the new Feed In Tariffs (FIT’s) due to be introduced in April this year. By introducing the FIT’s the Government is icentivizing private sector power generation and this means that the B & E Boys can reduce its carbon footprint and offer tenants much more efficient “green” electricity.
B & E Boys’ Waters Meeting site is located on Tong Moore within the Valley Retail and Business Park and is home to the former Sandusky / Belloit Walmsley factory which was once in the heart of Industrial Bolton. Boys are offering part of the 400,000 sq foot premises for alternative uses which could include recycling, warehousing or manufacturing processes.
