Bentley invests in sustainable energy with largest UK solar car port
In the company’s centenary year Bentley reinforces its commitment to sustainable energy with the installation of the UK’s largest ever solar car port at its factory headquarters in Crewe.
This means all electricity used to manufacture every Bentley is solar or certified green.
The installation of 10,000 solar panels, which have a capacity of 2.7MW, cover 1,378 car parking spaces and an area of 16,426 mq, enough to cover two football pitches. The solar car port takes Bentley’s total on-site solar panel energy capacity to 7.7MW, enough to cover over 1,750 homes.
System could reduce CO2 by 3,300 tonnes per year.
