Bentley Motors to get UK's largest solar carport at its Crewe factory

Construction has started of a large scale commercial carport at Bentley Motors’ manufacturing headquarters in Crewe, Cheshire.

In a six-month project due to complete in September 2018, FlexiSolar, the Cambridge based solar carport specialist, will construct what is set to become the UK’s largest solar carport system to date, with 10,000 solar panels with a capacity of 2.7MW. The bespoke solar structures will shelter approximately 1,378 car parking spaces at the Bentley manufacturing facility.

FlexiSolar is backed by Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency driven to support the science and technology innovations that will grow the UK economy.

Managing Director of FlexiSolar, Robert Carpenter said: “This large scale solar carport system is a clear example of an integrated energy solution; and one that utilises an existing parking area without sacrificing valuable land resources.”

In Crewe, FlexiSolar’s V-Frame Double Row Mono Pitch solar carport design will appear across twenty-seven parking rows. It has been designed and manufactured by the FlexiSolar team, with the project funded by Guinness Asset Management under a power purchase agreement.

Bentley Motors' headquarters in Crewe, north west England is home to all of its operations including design, R&D, engineering and production of the company's four luxury car model lines, Bentayga, Continental, Flying Spur and Mulsanne. Bentley employs around 4,000 people at Crewe.
