G24i targets ‘green from green’ energy

Solar manufacturer G24 Innovations (G24i) has opened a 120-metre tall, 2.3 MW wind turbine at its Cardiff manufacturing facility in the UK.

The Ecotricity-owned turbine will produce enough electricity to power the entire 23 acre site and will save more than 2500 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year.

G24i claims this makes it the first company to produce renewable energy products using only renewable energy.

G24i has also launched a new on-site electric vehicle programme, using surplus wind power to run two Peugeot iOn vehicles for travel in the local area.
