Bentley are really embracing solar technology
Bentley may be regarded as the very epitome of the gas-guzzling behemoth but the factory in Crewe is a pioneer when it comes to generating its own electricity.
The rooftop solar system, one of the largest in the UK at 5MW, produces around 40% of the plant’s peak demand. They are now believed to be planning another 3MW installed on a carport structure over the staff car park.
This suggests that Bentley, and its parent VW, understands how solar really works. All the electricity generated will be consumed at the factory and solar electricity consumed at the point of generation is the cheapest way to create new electricity supply.
