As a company that specialises in audio-visual technology solutions, TVD Group is committed to not only providing exceptional customer service but also minimising our carbon footprint wherever possible.

We understand that sustainability is an essential consideration for many of our clients and we believe that investing in sustainable energy solutions not only benefits the environment, but it also makes good business sense. We’ve made the huge decision of bringing green energy to the TVD offices and warehouse. We have invested almost £37,000, with a projected saving of nearly £10,000 on the company’s annual energy bills! It has been estimated that the solar panels will be generating nearly 38,658 kWh annually with our current usage being nearly 77,000 kWh.


By this time next year, we aim to have cut our carbon emissions cut by half, emitting 8,307kg fewer CO2 emissions each year! A typical 100 kW solar installation can offset 167 metric tonnes of CO2 emissions per year, which is the equivalent of planting over 2,500 trees. Whilst the cost savings are obviously important, we’re excited to be fulfilling our 2023 ambitions of becoming a more eco-friendly company.


We always like to support local businesses wherever possible and following some extensive research, we discovered Preston-based ‘Contact Renewables and Solar,’ and we were not disappointed. They are an impressive outfit that provides superior solar panel installation and renewable energy services. We have found that the team at Contact Renewables and Solar have been nothing but knowledgeable, professional, and dedicated to providing the best possible service throughout the project.

“We were thrilled when TVD Group reached out to us with a desire to transition towards renewable energy! Our team finds working alongside clients like the TVD Group particularly satisfying, not only do we get to see smart business decisions being made but also sustainability initiatives put into place. It was truly a pleasure for us here at Contact Renewables to complete this installation, and we look forward hearing about how it significantly reduces their energy overheads in future updates from them. Congratulations again on making such a conscientious choice; going green is something all of us can aspire towards!” – Alan Stewart, Project Manager. 


“Installing solar panels was an easy decision for TVD as it made great commercial sense with rising energy costs, our increasing building footprint, and the imminent opening of our new showroom. It also aligns with our ecological and sustainability values of having a positive impact on our work and wider environment. Saving money and becoming more sustainable are two valuable benefits of solar installation, but we are also seeing more clients looking for sustainability in the companies they deal with and it’s another great reason to work with TVD”, commented Lucia Maguire, Managing Director at TVD Group.


We have taken some bold steps towards sustainability at TVD Group and hope that others will follow. Businesses that invest in renewable energy sources can help to reduce their environmental impact and save money on energy costs while also improving their reputation and brand image. Companies that generate their own electricity can reduce their reliance on the grid and avoid rising electricity costs. The savings can be substantial depending on the size of the installation and the company’s energy needs. In fact, many businesses report energy bill savings of 10-20% after installing solar panels.
