  • On-site electricity generation is now in place through a 116kW capacity system at Leeds premises.
  • Bespoke designed system comprising 310 Tier One Solar Panels.
  • Equivalent electricity generated from the system at only 5.4p per kW Hour for the long-term.
  • Green energy generated resulting in CO2savings of 560 tonnes forecast over the next 25 years.

Leading installers of commercial Solar Energy Systems, Centreco (UK) Limited, announce the completion of a 116kW installation for We Are Resource Ltd at their premises in Leeds, West Yorkshire.

The solar energy system consisting of 310 roof mounted tier-one panels will allow this full-service communications agency to generate their own green electricity, with the system predicted to save over 560 Tonnes of COemissions over the next 25 years. This allows We Are Resource to achieve its own green targets and reduce its carbon footprint, something of increasing importance to the company as it seeks to further improve its environmental credentials.


Using in-house resources, Centreco used the latest modelling techniques alongside site surveys, to design and install a bespoke solar energy system matching We Are Resource’s energy usage profile, thereby ensuring the best long-term commercial returns for the business from otherwise redundant roof space.

Since being established in 1996, We Are Resource has built a profound reputation based on quality and trust. They are passionate about being brave and adventurous with the solutions they provide. We Are Resource’s mission is “To always do what’s best for our clients, our colleagues, and our planet.” The addition of this new solar energy system sees a particular focus on the environmental aspect of their mission to deliver a meaningful energy transition strategy and to ensure that both new and current clients are reassured by We Are Resource’s environmental aspirations.

The new Centreco solar energy installation will also produce low-cost electricity for We Are Resource generating electricity at an equivalent fixed electricity cost of just 5.4p per kWh for the company over the next 25 years.

We Are Resource commented on the installation, “Sustainability has been at the forefront of our business for several years, but we’ve felt we need to do more.  We’re at the start of a journey as we strive to learn and adopt new ways to reduce our carbon footprint, introduce more sustainable business practices and to further support our local community here in Leeds.
 We’re also passionate about helping our clients and partners on their sustainability journey too.”

Tom Knox, Business Development Manager at Centreco commented, “We are pleased to have worked alongside such a forward-thinking and environmentally conscious company. This system will bring a range of benefits for We Are Resource, but at the heart of it is a sustainable solution to on-site electricity production. We wish them all the best in the future when it comes to generating their own green electricity with this hyper-low-cost electricity generation system that Centreco have delivered for them.
