Energy Savings from the Sun

Drinks manufacturer to employ solar power in order to attain 100% renewables target

One of the world’s best-known drinks manufacturers has revealed it’s now sourcing all the necessary power for its UK operations from renewable sources, a recent news report has been able to suggest. 
 
Coca-Cola European Partners (CCEP) will use solar power generated by the Haigh Hall solar farm, a 5MW site that was developed by Athos Solar and supplies its generated electricity to CCEP’s Wakefield facility under a long-term power purchase agreement.
 
The underground connection cable linking the solar farm with the CCEP site was approved by Wakefield City Council in October 2015.
 
Located roughly 1.5 miles away, the project is directly connected to the Wakefield soft drinks factory and is forecast to supply roughly 15% of its electricity demand.
 
It builds on the energy generated by an existing CHP system installed in 2014 and a renewable tariff supplied by EDF which makes up any shortfall of electricity to guarantee the site’s 100% renewable status.
 
Nick Brown, head of sustainability at CCEP, said that the Wakefield solar farm was part of a long-term sustainability project.
 
“We’ve been collaborating with partners across GB to build our renewable energy credentials and have enjoyed working together with a number of local groups and businesses in Wakefield to support this.
 
“At CCEP we are committed to minimising the impact of our operations, with a core goal to reduce the carbon footprint of the drink in the consumers’ hand by a third in time for 2020. By guaranteeing that 100% of the electricity we use comes from renewable sources we’re taking a major step forward in achieving this,” he added.
 
If you're looking for an extensive solar power system, capable of powering up your entire household, then look no further than SolarSave, a comprehensive and complete solution that will deliver excellent ROI.
