Nixon Hire has cut over 129 tonnes of carbon emissions in just 4 weeks on a single customer’s site using its Solar Pod product.

The Solar Pods were selected to power a large site up due to their provision of a sustainable power source without the needs for a mains supply or a separate generator.

The site configuration saw 30 Nixon Hire sleeper cabins, otherwise known as Snoozepods, powered by 9 solar pods.

By opting for a Solar Pod in favour of a traditional generator the site reported huge carbon savings of 129,599kg in local Co2 emissions, the equivalent to planting 5,890 trees.

Graham Nixon, Nixon Hire Managing Director said: “With the largest solar product fleet for hire in the UK Nixon Hire have heavily invested into the ever-growing renewables sector and the company has positioned itself as the industry leader in solar innovation.”

Solar Pods generate energy by harnessing sunlight via solar PV panels. This energy is either instantly converted into power or surplus is stored in an internal battery bank.

The unit is further supported by a back-up generator which only kicks in when the solar resource has been depleted.

Free and zero carbon energy is used and created as long as sunlight is available to the unit making it suitable for use in the UK all year round.

Nixon Hire plan to further increase their Solar Pod fleet size and have also launched additional solar products such as Solar Lights and the Solar Welfare Van.
