M&S completes UK largest roof-mounted solar-PV array

Marks & Spencer has completed the largest single roof-mounted solar-PV array on its East Midlands distribution centre in Castle Donington. With an area of 84 000 m2, the roof has 24 272 panels, which will reduce the company’s carbon footprint by 48 000 t over 20 years.

The 6.1 MW(p) installation will generate over 5000 MWh of electricity a year.

The project will help M&S maintain its commitment of sourcing all its electricity for UK and Ireland buildings from renewable sources, with 50% sourced from small-scale renewable sources by 2020.
