JJ Foodservice is investing more than £2 million to install solar panels at nine of its UK depots.
The wholesaler is currently installing more than 2,000 panels across the roofs of its Basingstoke, Bristol, Leicester and Dagenham branches. These are expected to generate an estimated 1,100,000 kWh annually.
Work at JJ Foodservice’s sites in Manchester, Newcastle, Birmingham, Doncaster and Leeds will follow next year.
With the installation of 2,000 solar panels on its Enfield HQ and Sidcup warehouses in 2015, the new projects will mean that all 11 JJ Foodservice branches will have solar technology in place.
Kaan Hendekli, head of operations at JJ Foodservice, said: “We are committed to developing a sustainable environment to protect our planet and set a good example. Solar energy is sustainable, renewable and can help to cut electricity bills, which will help us to continue offering affordable prices at a time when people need it the most.”
