PostSubject: MINI goes solar at its UK factory   20th June 2014, 22:49

More than 11,500 panels are helping to harness renewable energy to power the MINI factory at Cowley. At more than 20,000 square metres, the plant’s new bodyshop now boasts one of the largest, roof-mounted solar farms to be installed in the UK.

The photovoltaic system is fully commissioned and has a generating capacity over 3 MW comprising over 11,500 solar panels and covers an area equivalent to five football pitches. The installation will generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of 850 households.
