Lidl to invest €1m in Ireland’s largest ever installation of solar panels

 

Lidl has welcomed a grant of planning from Kildare County Council for the installation of energy-saving solar panels at its 58,000m2 distribution centre in Newbridge, Co. Kildare, which is currently under construction. This installation will see an investment of €1m at this site alone, adding to the €1m already committed by Lidl to solar power installations across its store network.

 

• 4364 solar panels will be installed on the roof of the Lidl distribution facility currently under construction in Newbridge, Co. Kildare

• Lidl’s solar panels will reduce the facility’s carbon output by 473 tonnes annually, the electricity usage equivalent to that of 240 homes

• Lidl and Waterford based Enerpower to start work on Ireland’s largest ever installation of PV solar panels at the retailer’s Newbridge distribution facility

• The retailer last year announced a €1m plan to retrofit solar panels to existing Lidl stores and committed to installing solar panels in new store constructions

 Lidl has welcomed a grant of planning from Kildare County Council for the installation of energy-saving solar panels at its 58,000m2 distribution centre in Newbridge, Co. Kildare, which is currently under construction. This installation will see an investment of €1m at this site alone, adding to the €1m already committed by Lidl to solar power installations across its store network.

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 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.

The distribution centre is being built to the highest environmental standards and will be certified to BREEAM, the world’s leading sustainable building certification. This latest investment is part of a range of sustainability initiatives introduced by Lidl in recent months. In addition to the solar installations Lidl became the first Irish retailer to roll out recycling bins across its entire store network to allow customers recycle unwanted packaging and the largest network of electric vehicle charging points in the Irish supermarket sector.
