Using solar to futureproof West Hallam in East Midlands, UK
The West Hallam property is our largest in the UK by area at 1.2 million sq ft. We are installing 1,545 solar panels on 3.5 acres of unused land. Our investment of £1.3 million will generate 1.05MWp of solar capacity to fully power the property and allow for excess electricity to be sold back to the grid.
Solar installation will also support the installation of EV charging stations for our largest customer at the property, which is a global 3PL, as well as other customers. We also plan to refurbish and redevelop ~300,000 sq ft of existing buildings, aspiring to a BREEAM 'Excellent' certification and we will foster biodiversity in the area by applying a woodland management plan to 20 acres of mature woodland on the site.
