In 2017, Euro Garages has invested £6m in the installation renewable energy sources across the UK estate. Solar panels have been installed, generating over 1.6 million kilowatts of energy – enough to power 400 homes – across more than a fifth of our forecourts. Over 1,112,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions will be saved year on year.
Other features of the investment include technologies that use power more economically, like LED lighting and solar thermal systems that can be used to heat up water. reducing water consumption is a key part of Euro Garages’ energy strategy, with efficiency monitoring in place and the use of rain water harvesting where possible.
