Uniroyal Global

Shawton Energy worked closely with Uniroyal Global to install a comprehensive solar energy system at their manufacturing facility in Earby.

As a business, Uniroyal Global are committed to reducing the environmental impact of their manufacturing operations and producing products with sustainability in mind, so being able to generate their own green energy was a key driver to work with Shawton Energy.

Shawton Energy installed 1MW rooftop Solar PV panels at their manufacturing facility in Earby. By going with our Power Purchase Agreement, they were able to start reaping the benefits of their large Solar PV system immediatley without any upfront Capital Investment and leave any ongoing maintenance of their system to us at no further cost.


We undertook detailed analysis of their energy usage, costs and site layout to ensure we designed a bespoke, turnkey solution for Uniroyal’s specific needs. We worked closely with the site team and the executive board to ensure they understood both the commercial and environmental benefits for their business and were confident that Shawton Energy were the right long term energy partner to deliver on this project.

Over a 16 week period we installed the project at their site which included over 2300 panels and ensured there was no disruption on site.


As Uniroyal have a high demand for energy in their business, they will use over 808,000 kWh of self generated energy a year with their new Solar PV system. This will save them £175k on their Electricity Bills in their first year.

Their new system has also helped reduce their annual carbon footprint by more than 273 tonnes per year.

Uniroyal Global are now generating 910,098kWh of clean energy a year, helping them to meet their Net Zero Targets and deliver on their ESG objectives
