New Solar PV on Historic Building

As featured in The Shropshire Star, read the Tanners Press Release from Marketing Manager Christina Albon regarding the new solar panels at the historic Wyle Cop HQ'

Renowned Shropshire Wine Merchant, Tanners Wines, has added a 30 Kw array of 70 Solar panels to its roof.  The all-black monocrystalline solar modules were chosen to be sympathetic to the local environment and provide a sustainable solution to help future proof the historic building. The panels have been added to the warehousing at the rear of the building and are not visible from Wyle Cop, where the celebrated firm’s listed frontage sits. The photovoltaic panels are in addition to a 4 Kw system the company installed 11 years ago.

The work was undertaken by Shrewsbury based firm Eden Power. Company Director Chris O’Neill commented,

“it was important for us to factor in the historic nature of this business and the heritage of the building when designing this installation. The low profile and all-black finish give the panels a discreet finish.” 

James Tanner, Chairman of Tanners Wines, is delighted with the installation,

“I’m really pleased we have been able to find a way of harnessing renewable energy for this historic building. The team and I are committed to reducing Tanners carbon footprint and this is one step we’ve taken in helping Shropshire towards a lower carbon future.”
