Supermarket giant Lidl is to invest 1 million euros ($1.12 million) and install 4,364 solar panels at a distribution facility being built in Ireland. The firm said that the solar panels would generate over 1 million kilowatt hours of energy per year, cutting the facility’s carbon output by around 473 tonnes.
According to CNBC, Lidl said the installation would represent Ireland’s “largest ever installation” of photovoltaic solar panels. Photovoltaic refers to a way of directly converting light from the sun into electricity.
The solar panels will be supplied by Enerpower, a renewable energy business based in Waterford, Ireland.
Lidl is one of many supermarkets looking turning to renewable forms of energy.
