LondonMetric adds two solar PV arrays to its portfolio

LondonMetric Property, as part of its strategy to help occupiers progress their net zero carbon ambitions, has facilitated the addition of two solar PV arrays at assets in Coventry and Bicester totalling 577 kWp.

At Coventry, 275 kWp of solar has been installed on a warehouse let to Aubrey Allen, a national food producer. The system will provide Aubrey Allen with c.25% of its annual energy needs.

At Bicester, 302 kWp will be installed later this year on a warehouse let to Greencore Homes, a builder of climate-positive homes. The SmartGrid system, which includes a 100kW/ 200kWh battery storage system, will be installed and operated by SNRG and is expected to meet c.40% of Greencore’s annual energy needs.

These solar PV arrays are expected to save c.100 tonnes of CO2 emissions per annum and increase LondonMetric’s total installed solar PV capacity to 4.2MWp.

Mark Stirling, Asset Director LondonMetric, commented: “Our focus is on meeting occupier requirements in a rapidly evolving environment by working in partnership with them to ensure their longevity and commitment to our assets. We are increasingly engaging with our occupiers to help them deliver on their net zero carbon targets and reduce their energy costs.

“There are a number of challenges to installing solar PV but we are delighted to have worked in collaboration with Greencore Homes and Aubrey Allen to facilitate these two installations and we will continue to evolve our approach to deliver on further opportunities.”
