TC Harrison looks to a greener future

Across the group at TC Harrison’s we are committed to a greener future, just this past month has seen the installation of solar panels at our flagship TC Harrison Ford Derby FordStore.
 
These panels will not only generate electricity to help power the site but will enable us to export excess energy back to the grid. It was noted that even on what was a cloudy day; each inverter generated around 33kW of electricity in ‘real time’, meaning a total generation of 132kW. Although the figure and generation will fluctuate throughout the day depending on cloud cover and sunlight, we’ve seen a really impressive output of power from other sites across the group that utilise solar panels.
 
In addition to the solar panels at TCH Ford, we now have electric vehicle charging stations at 4 out of 6 of our TC Harrison JCB depots, which are open to visitors and staff. These installations follow on from the success of charging points at TCH Leasing which have been in place for 5 years.
 
Finally, as electric vehicles evolve, so do our company cars as another way of working towards a greener future is with TC Harrison staff running hybrid vehicles whilst also being able to take advantage of the latest charging points.
