A new solar facility in a car park in the south of England

It’s not just cars and empty spaces in this parking lot: numerous solar panels sit atop jet-black steel trusses, absorbing the sun’s rays and shading the vehicles below.

Outside the offices of a major car manufacturer in the south of England, there are now 2,000 panels with a maximum capacity of less than 1 megawatt.

This is enough to power hundreds of homes.

“They’re amazing,” said Guy Silvers, director of business development at Sage, a company that supplies solar panels.
