Solar PV deployment across our retail centres to increase amount of on-site renewable electricity generation

We’ve increased the capacity of onsite renewable energy, installing solar panels at eight of our retail sites.

At White Rose, Leeds alone, we’ve loaded 2,902 solar panels onto the centre’s roofs. With each panel measuring 1.6 square metres, we’ve created a total area of more than 4,600 square meters of solar panels, roughly the same size as 17 tennis courts. 

All these panels mean the new installation can provide 680 MWh of electricity every year, enough to power 200 homes. And in the process, it means a reduction of 250 tonnes of carbon – the equivalent of more than half a million miles of passenger car emissions.
