Lancashire shoe business benefits from solar photovoltaics

Housed in a Victorian mill in East Lancashire, Bacup Shoe Direct Ltd realises estimated annual savings of 10.1 tonnes C02 and a 5.3 year return on investment from their solar panel installation.

Established in 1928, Bacup Shoe Direct Ltd is a privately owned family business that has grown to become a leading UK footwear distributor.

Their 100,000 sq.ft. head office, warehouse and distribution centre in East Lancashire handles all aspects from design concept to delivered product, with manufacture itself now focussed in the Far East and India.

With significant overheads, rising energy prices and an abundance of roof space, they approached Airis to install a solar PV system on the roof of the Victorian built Atherton Holme Mill.
