Consisting of 10,000 solar panels, which have a capacity of 2.7MW, covering 1,378 car parking spaces across an area of 16,426m², Bentley’s new solar carport not only boosts their green credentials but will also mean that their entire Crewe site will be 100% renewable energy powered (either by the solar car port or via purchased certified green energy).

Commenting on Bentley’s investment, Peter Bosch, Bentley’s Member of the Board for Manufacturing, said:

“It’s important to look ahead and prepare the business for the next 100 years by investing significantly in our products, our people and our site infrastructure. This includes new initiatives that reinforce our commitment to the environment.”
Bentley's new solar carport is expected to save at least 3,300 tonnes of CO2 each year.

“Whether this is introducing alternative powertrain technologies in future models, or our award-winning work to reduce the environmental impact of our factory, these sustainable measures strengthen our desire to lead the way in sustainable luxury mobility.”

It is expected that the new solar carport will reduce Bentley’s CO2 emissions by at least 3,300 tonnes per year.
