Hilti contract for solar panel firm

Have your say

Tankersley-based Nationwide Solar has completed a major photovoltaic panel installation for construction products manufacturer Hilti at its head office in Manchester and its logistics and training centre in Stockport.

The project involved installing more than 330 panels, which will cut CO2 emissions by 31 tonnes a year and pay for themselves in 10 years.

Nationwide used Hilti’s MSP pitched roof systems to mount the panels, which were fitted in less than three days.

The firm says solar panel systems are as viable as ever, despite the Government’s reduction of Feed In Tariffs.
