Since 1983, Crestchic has remained the world’s largest specialised load bank manufacturer. The load banks are used in the testing of power supplies in the most demanding climactic and environmental conditions across seven continents.

Being involved in the manufacturing of load bank’s brings with it significant energy usage, and due to increasing pressure from within the supply chain, Crestchic were keen to explore options to reduce their environmental impact as well as fixing a significant properiotn of their electricity costs long term.

After evaluating different suppliers, Centreco were selected to initially model and evaluate the potential of a commercial solar panel system at their premises in Burton-Upon-Trent before then being selected to deliver the 70kW system through to a completed installation stage.
