How to switch to renewable energy

Generating our own renewable energy - JH Label Solutions (video)

Case Study

James Hamilton Group in Lurgan dates back to the 1920s. JH Label Solutions was established to supply the market with a wide range of both plain and printed labels.

Keith Hamilton, Managing Director of James Hamilton Group, explains how JH Label Solutions invested in a solar PV (photovoltaic) energy system. With the addition of new state of the art printing equipment, along with a growing turnover, energy costs for the company also increased.

An Invest NI energy audit identified the potential for a solar PV installation. Keith explains how he worked with Invest NI, how the arrays were installed, the expected payback periods and the overall benefits for JH Label Solutions.
