With a diverse range of kit and equipment comes a lot of battery power and this power needs charging before we can use it.

We’re delighted to say that here at photos.co.uk, we are cutting down on our carbon footprint and will now be charging all of our batteries using green energy.

This weekend we have been busy installing our brand new solar panels. We have two 500 watt panels, which will generate enough electricity for us to charge our drones, cameras and hardware.

It’s important to us that we do our bit for the environment and by running off solar power, we can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate change, as we can use this renewable source of power in our business.

How does using solar power help the environment?

  1. Renewable Energy: Unlike fossil fuels, such as coal, oil and gas, that contribute to climate change when burned, solar power harnesses energy from the sun, which is an abundant source of power
  2. Reduced Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Using energy from solar produces virtually no greenhouse gas emissions. Fossil fuel power plants emit a significant source of carbon dioxide, which is the primary gas responsible for global warming
  3. Air and Water Pollution Reduction: Unlike traditional energy sources, such as coal and natural gas, solar power systems generate electricity without producing harmful air pollutants or emissions into the environment. Solar energy also has minimal impact on water resources, as it does not require large amounts of water for operation, unlike conventional power plants that rely on this for cooling
  4. Conservation of Natural Resources: Solar power reduces the reliance on fossil fuel resources, which are extracted through destructive and environmentally damaging methods, such as mining and drilling. By utilising solar energy, we can conserve these resources for future generations and reduce the environment impacts associated with their extraction
  5. Land Use and Biodiversity: Solar power systems can be installed on rooftops and land, making use of existing space without the need for additional land development. This helps preserve natural habitats and supports local ecosystems

Going green has been extremely important to us and we will continue doing everything we can to help the environment whilst still delivering great content for your projects.
