Ploughcroft to light up the sky

Halifax Courier - - Business - By Tom Scargill

For one night only, Ploughcroft Eco-Roof will be bring­ing the fa­mous North­ern Lights to Bea­con Hill in Hal­i­fax. The unique event, which be­gins at 9pm on May 1, is to cel­e­brate the Brig­house-based eco spe­cial­ist sav­ing the re­gion £1m in en­ergy bills, as a re­sult of its prod­ucts, EcoRoof and Eco-Wall, which were launched in 2014.

Work­ing closely with lo­cal light­ing ex­pert James Bawn, who has pre­vi­ously been re­spon­si­ble for projects such as York­shire’s Fes­ti­val of Light, Ploughcroft will il­lu­mi­nate the sky green with a pow­er­ful beam of light, and bring a touch of Ice­land to the lo­cal area.

The spec­ta­cle, which is so bright it re­quired clear­ance from the Civil Avi­a­tion Author­ity (CAA), will be vis­i­ble from most of Hal­i­fax and Kirklees.

All res­i­dents are wel­come to watch the event from their home, gar­den or even their lo­cal pub and the en­ergy effi- ciency spe­cial­ist is hop­ing the event will help to raise aware­ness into the im­por­tance of en­ergy sav­ing home im­prove­ments.

Chris Hop­kins, man­ag­ing direc­tor at Ploughcroft Ecoroof, said: “We are ex­tremely proud that we have been able to help home­own­ers across West York­shire make such dra­matic en­ergy sav­ings, and we wanted to mark the oc­ca­sion with a truly im­pres­sive spec­ta­cle.

“We are hop­ing that this ex­cit­ing event will send out a pos­i­tive ‘green’ mes­sage to the lo­cal com­mu­nity.”
