Gainsborough company, Solar Team, has won a contract to supply and fit a 30kW solar electricity system to a distribution centre in Newark.

Rainbow Nightfreight, a distribution hub for overnight parcel and pallet deliveries in the East Midlands, awarded the contract to Solar Team after a competitive tendering process.

The system will consist of 120 solar panels mounted on the warehouse roof, connected to the site’s electricity supply via a 30kW DC to AC inverter.

Solar Team director, Chris Wright, said: “We are very excited to have won this contract against stiff competition and it will be our biggest installation to date. We are hoping this will be a springboard to winning further commercial solar panel contracts in Gainsborough and the wider area.

“It’s great news that a small business in Gainsborough can win this type of contract.”

Managing Director of Rainbow Nightfreight, Andrew Rainbow, said: “We look forward to working with Solar Team on this project.

“It will help reduce our large electricity bill and provide us with a 20 year income from the Government feed-in tariff scheme.”

The installation is scheduled to go ahead on Monday, November 21, and should be complete before the end of that week.
