Tiger Wheel & Tyre is probably one of the biggest names in the automotive parts and fitment centres industry. Being popular, however, also means attracting even more criticisms and doubters, especially those that have qualms over the company’s use of materials. The company, however, wants to be part of the solution rather than just contributing to a global problem. That’s why it’s now launching its Solar powered stores to help cut down on carbon footprint and, in the long run, also cut down on bills.
The Company’s Fourways store is one of the first in the Tiger Wheel & Tyre family to complete the move to solar power. According to the brand, this is just the first store to go solar, another sixteen stores are earmarked for the green initiative, and they’re hoping to complete phase one of the rollout by the end of July this year.
With the initial Fourways store pilot project, Tiger Wheel & Tyre is looking at a reduction of over 28,000kg of reduced CO² emissions per annum. That’s the equivalent of 64 trees saved.
In addition to going green for the environment, other crucial factors that informed this decision include soaring energy prices, and the uncertainty of loadshedding in South Africa.
