The installation of the 50kWp Photo Voltaic (PV) solar electric generating system is made up of 196 Mitsubishi Electric solar panels which are expected to generate 40,050 kilo Watt hours of energy, and will save 17.2 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year.
Lance Bradley, managing director of Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, said: ‘The decision to install Solar PV was a straight forward one. As well as offering good strong, sound business benefits, this move complements our growing reputation of leading the way in environmental technologies.
‘Whilst we know that the Government Feed in Tariff is set to be reduced in August, the increasing efficiency of panels, falling costs of the hardware and increasing energy costs are likely to still make the case to other businesses compelling, and we hope they will follow our lead.’
The installation also includes a new ‘state-of-the-art’ energy generation and performance monitoring system, enabling performance to be monitored via the internet. A permanent real-time display in the main reception area will further demonstrate Mitsubishi Motors’ commitment to Green Energy.
