Charles Day’s Latest Eco-Friendly Endeavour: Harnessing Solar Power

Established in 1976, we here at Charles Day are committed to consistent reinvestment; providing the latest and best technologies to businesses and sectors looking to outsource their profile cutting. With this in mind, we endeavour to always provide a comprehensive service that offers economic value through speed, accuracy, and unrivalled metal profiling capabilities.

Having amassed over 4 decades of hands-on experience, we are proud to have found our roots in the heart of Sheffield and are dedicated to maintaining the city’s reputation for being the greenest city in the UK. With this being said, we have also made consistent strides towards attaining our ISO14001, to indicate our adherence to environmentally-friendly codes of practice.

With our green practices at the forefront of all we do, our latest environmental initiative exemplifies this commitment; a large-scale solar panel installation project covering both Charles Day and its sister company, The Laser Cutting Co, with an astounding 1,346 solar panels.

Professional Profile Cutting Solutions Powered by Solar Energy

Designed to cover approximately 40,000 square feet of roofing across the Charles Day facilities, a single solar panel alone is capable of generating 203kWp of solar energy; ensuring consistent control over energy costs, which can be passed onto our customers. With leading capacities for profile cutting in both complexity and volume, this latest development in our 40-year-plus legacy is yet another major step forward for the company.

Devised by Sales and Business Director, Charlie Day, and Operations Director, James Day, it was clear that reducing our overall environmental impact was of great importance to both Charles Day and The Laser Cutting Co.’s customers. With an ethos dedicated to consistently improving our technologies and services for the benefit and simplicity of our clients, this investment is another example of our strides towards attaining our official ISO14001 accreditation.
