Talty’s Mace in Lissycasey, Co. Clare has become the first Mace store in Ireland to install solar panels on its roof, which will lead to an estimated 15% reduction in the store’s carbon emissions and a significant annual cost saving on energy bills of up to 15%.
Requiring normal daylight to function, the advanced solar panels have been deployed as part of a partnership between BWG Foods and Irish renewable energy efficiency company Enerpower. The project is part of BWG’s commitment to reducing the environmental impact of retail businesses on their communities, and to encourage independent retailers to improve their green footprint.
The new installation is part of Talty’s Mace Lissycasey’s recent revamp to mark its 45th birthday. The store has been trading in the local community since 1974 and this latest addition is entirely in keeping with its commitment to constantly improving its offerings in order to develop an even better store with high quality services, in order to facilitate the growing customer needs in the area.
Speaking on behalf of the Talty family, Cathal Talty said he is delighted with the addition of solar panels. “That we will benefit from significant savings while also helping the environment is a great bonus,” he said, “and I am thrilled that we are the first Mace in the estate to have this innovation.”
Mace sales director Daniel O’Connell said the symbol group is constantly striving to innovate in this area and more. “We are delighted that Talty’s Mace in Lissycasey is the first Mace store to connect as part of this exciting partnership,” he said. “Mace is committed to seeking out new opportunities and innovations that will help us reduce our carbon footprint. I want to congratulate the Talty family on showing the enthusiasm to take this project on and wish them well with continued success.”
