We have increased our emphasis on reducing waste at source and making use of it as a resource. This is why energy efficiency is now acknowledged throughout Cellular Solutions as a primary driver in procurement. In this way we can make the crucial move towards being a truly sustainable business. Our intelligent use of Destiny digital pens, combined with Blackberry smartphones, not only delivers a fantastic business advantage they cut down on our waste, fuel and carbon costs. The good news is that many of our services offer great potential for conserving energy resources and improving quality of life. Emailing, texting, home working and teleconferencing all reduce the need to travel and the use of finite natural resources. We are also a supporter of o2 recycle and more info on recycling your mobile phone can be found here.
Our latest project with the assistance of John N Dunn, will see a Solar photovoltaic renewable energy systems capture the sun's energy using photovoltaic (PV) cells. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run household appliances and lighting. photovoltaic cells are panels you can attach to your roof or walls. Each cell is made from one or two layers of semi conducting material, usually silicon. When light shines on the cell it creates an electric field across the layers. The stronger the sunshine, the more electricity is produced. photovoltaic cells come in a variety of shapes and colours, from grey "solar tiles" that look like roof tiles to panels and transparent cells that you can use on conservatories and glass.
As part of our three year plan with the Carbon Trust this along with our Waster Conservation and other energy efficient meassure will see us become a Carbon Trust Accredited Company.
