2022 Efficiency Project
4 Metre CNC Overhead Router
Solar Panels to St Helens Facility


Widd Signs established the St Helens facility in Jan 2020 and have been developing the site and
workforce to be a leading signage design, manufacture and implementation across, Commercial,
Residential, Retail, Education Health & Welfare.


We have recently updated our Metalworking area to take larger capacity panels up to 4mtr. This
has in turn lead to the requirement to upgrade / add a further CNC and increased energy



4 Metre CNC to match with the other metalwork machinery, increasing our offer and ability to
cut and fold panels up to 4 meters.
With the new and replacement machinery we see an increase in our energy consumption, to
offset this and in line with our environmental and sustainability plans we want to add Solar
Panels to the facility to offset the increase and reduce our overall consumption from the
national grid.


Deliverable Timescale
We expect the project to commence no later than Jan 2023, and to be completed by April 2023
Indicative Budget – 4mtrs CNC Overhead Router circa (£85,000 – £95,000)


Solar Panels circa (£90,000 – £110,000)
