As part of their “A Better Tomorrow” sustainability programme, Lidl have partnered with Waterford Company Enerpower to install Ireland’s largest solar panel installation project. This installation will take place at Lidl’s new distribution centre in Newbridge, Co. Kildare which is currently under construction.
Once installed, the solar panels at the Lidl distribution facility will produce 1,011,929 kilowatt hours of energy from a sustainable resource annually which is the equivalent to meeting the electricity requirements of 240 homes and reduces the centre’s carbon output by some 473 tonnes annually. As a result of this investment over one quarter of Lidl’s energy requirements will now be generated by solar power. Lidl will work with Waterford based Enerpower, who will supply the 4364 individual panels, which will be installed on the roof of the distribution facility – making this Ireland’s largest ever installation of PV solar panels.
