We have successfully placed ‘Fergy’ on the Map!


Saving Energy North East has been working very closely with local entrepreneur and well known haulier Alan Ferguson to install a truly unique solar installation.

At the head office of well-known transport and removals expert – Fergusons Transport – we have installed solar panels to read ‘FERGY’ in recognition of the family name. Each letter is an impressive 18 metres high with a width of 10 metres.

Consisting of 322 panels and spanning across a considerable sized roof space of 1275sqm, it is anticipated that the Cramlington branch will save approx. £11500 per year plus 30000kg of carbon per year. This is an incredible saving!

As the office space is situated on route of the flight path, ‘FERGY’ will be seen in broad daylight by travellers heading in and out of Newcastle airport.

The installation comes as part of a series of commercial installs for the transport company, including solar installs across depots in Sunderland and Dudley. It is anticipated that the 3 additional projects will result in annual savings of £32,400.

It really has been great working alongside Alan Ferguson to develop the first of its kind solar installation. It really highlights the versatility of solar and the opportunities available to do something that is a little different on a large scale roof.

Alan and his company is leading the way in the North East for other businesses to save money and at the same time reduce their carbon emissions through having solar PV installed.
