Local electrical contractor and renewables specialist Alliance Electrical have future-proofed Dundee Science Centre by completing a 40 kilowatt (kWh) Solar panel installation on the south facing roof as part of the on-going capital investment and refurbishment project.

The new solar panels will generate enough renewable energy to power the entire centre, reducing its environmental impact and rendering it carbon neutral.

Alliance Electrical Managing Director, Errol Lawrie commented; “Our team have loved working on this project and to be involved in the ambitious redevelopment of such a popular local visitor attraction is exciting. We have delivered several similar large-scale solar panel installs and it is great to support our customers in their efforts to reduce the environmental impact of their businesses.”

Errol Lawrie continued; “There have been a lot of larger renewables contracts around the East Coast and our team are proud to have established ourselves as the go-to business to deliver these. With ambitious “green” targets announced by the government, we expect to see many more and we are growing and upskilling our team in preparation.”

In addition to the solar panel installation Alliance also completed electrical works to install new LED display lighting as part of the centre’s £2million Connect Project. Due to current Covid restrictions, Dundee Science Centre remains closed to visitors.

Alliance Electrical is a well-established and reputable contractor that has a long history of delivering specialist projects across East and Central Scotland.  The company, which celebrated its 25th year in business in 2020, was acquired by construction sector investment group, United Capital, in December 2019.
