SEGRO - Retrofitting PV Roof Panels
SEGRO is achieving strong progress on its 2020 sustainability goal to increase renewable energy generating capacity across the Group, following the launch of a scheme in 2013 to fund PV (photovoltaic) panels on suitable buildings across the portfolio. This scheme offers occupiers the opportunity to purchase this renewable electricity at reduced rates compared to National Grid electricity. The renewable installations are wholly owned by SEGRO, which sells the power to the occupier, with the surplus going to the National Grid. In 2014, SEGRO installed an additional 1.3 million kWh of renewable energy generation capability across the portfolio, including PV arrays on its own offices at 258 Bath Road on the Slough Trading Estate and on a number of SEGRO buildings across London and Thames Valley.
