Meeting our own sustainability responsibilities
We are currently migrating all our facilities to a mix of ultra-low wattage LED lighting, very slim T5 fluorescent tubes, and PIR sensors, while we have modernised ambient machinery to make sure we meet the correct storage conditions for your archive documents and tapes more quickly, more efficiently – saving electricity and keeping costs low.
A further initiative that has sustainability at its core is the bio-energy scheme at Bentwaters Park near Ipswich that provides local power for local people, including two of Restore’s high-security storage facilities. The energy plant has a 3.8MW rating, which refers to the amount of electricity it produces every hour. This is enough power to fuel over 2,000 households for a year and we are pleased to be connected to this source of ‘dark green’ energy.
