Vipal Praises Select Tyres for Solar Energy Investment
Many companies in Europe are managing to reduce electricity costs in the tyre retreading process, bringing an even greater return to the business and the environment. This is the case for Vipal dealer Select Tyres, located in the city of Chelmsford, England, which currently produces 800 tyres per month and distributes retreaded tyres throughout the UK.
The retreader has a plate system for capturing solar energy that generates a very significant economy for the business. Select Tyres also receives a reimbursement from the government, because the surplus of energy generated goes directly to the public network, serving other consumers in the region.
“Initiatives like these, aimed at reducing electricity consumption, are of the utmost importance. In the European Community, tyre retreading has been considered a green industry for a long time. Now, companies are investing in solar energy to make the business even more sustainable. For this reason, Select Tyres must be congratulated for the initiative,” says Leonardo Muller from Vipal Europe’s Commercial Department.
