Nissan plugs in 4.75-MW solar park in UK


The array uses 19,000 solar panels in total. It was developed and constructed within the loop of Nissan’s vehicle test track by European Energy Photovoltaics.

Japanese carmaker Nissan Motor Co Ltd (TYO:7201) has officially flipped the switch on a 4.75-MW photovoltaic (PV) park at its Sunderland factory, northeastern England, local media said on Wednesday.

The PV system was installed near Nissan’s existing 10-turbine wind farm at the site. With a combined capacity of 11.35 MW, the PV and wind park are expected to be able to generate enough electricity to meet approximately 7% of the manufacturing plant's needs.

The Sunderland plant is Nissan’s biggest factory in Europe. It serves as the European centre for the making of the all-electric Nissan LEAF model and its batteries.
