Covers takes Azur Solar systems

Published:  09 September, 2011

CHICHESTER: Covers Builders Merchants is set to install Azur Solar solutions across the UK after successfully completing trial projects at six of its branches in Southern England.

The installations at the Covers Home Ideas store, the Covers Trade Centre at Chichester and the depots at Aldershot, Bognor, Gosport, and Portsmouth will now be used as reference sites.

Rupert Green, director in charge of sustainability at Covers. "We have started reaping the benefit of reduced energy costs within our branches and have gone one stage further by marketing Azur Solar Power Kits to our customers through our newly remodelled Eco Centre.

"Working with our installation partners we have completed seven domestic installations, with many others in the pipeline."

Covers also plans to install solar PV on two more depots later in the year.
