B&Q's Poole store goes solar

B&Q’s Poole store is the latest in the B&Q estate to be fitted with solar panels.

The work was completed just before Christmas 2016. This is the largest solar installation we have done on a store and complements the internal LED lighting that was installed around two years ago.

The installation will produce energy equivalent to that needed to power 90 homes for a year, and will reduce the store’s grid energy consumption by 23% per year.

The store’s roof is now home to 1,048 solar panels, which would cover an area the size of six tennis courts (or 1,500m2).
