Dynamite Goes Solar
Move to become carbon neutral gathers pace as Dynamite HQ harnesses the sun for energy.
Hundreds of solar panels have been installed at our manufacturing facility in Nottingham in a move to save energy and help save the planet. No less than 266 panels in have been installed on one of our largest buildings and these will help us dramatically cut down or CO2 emitions by using renewable energy to make our bait.
The project is just one of several initiatives we have been working on with the aim of helping us to massively reduce our carbon footprint and in turn help the planet and the environment. It’s all part of the bigger plan as we try to improve on sustainability over the next 5 to 10 years.
Operations manager, Dave Spence who was in charge of the project said:
“One of the largest contributors to our footprint here is our energy use to make our baits so we wanted to do something about this. All our lighting is now LED but we decided to take it a step further and install solar.
As an industry that actively encourages people to spend time outdoors we should all be conscious of our actions and the potential effects they have on our planet. With power used for manufacturing and the running of site being one of the main culprits of CO2e here at Dynamite, the decision to switch to solar energy was an easy and obvious one. The installation of the 266 panels will save a whopping 930,000 tonnes of CO2e over the next 25 years. A significant step in the right direction.”
