JJ Foodservice goes solar

Enfield, UK: JJ Foodservice is installing solar panels at nine of its UK depots at a cost of over £2m.

The wholesaler is installing more than 2,000 panels across the roofs of its Basingstoke, Bristol, Leicester and Dagenham warehouses. These are expected to generate an estimated 1,100,000 kWh annually.

Solar installation will then follow in Manchester, Newcastle, Birmingham, Doncaster and Leeds next year.

With the installation of 2,000 solar panels on its Enfield HQ and Sidcup warehouses in 2015, the new projects will mean that all 11 JJ Foodservice branches will have solar panels in place.

Kaan Hendekli, head of operations at JJ Foodservice, said: “We are committed to developing a sustainable environment to protect our planet and set a good example. Solar energy is sustainable, renewable and can help to cut electricity bills, which will help us to continue offering affordable prices at a time when people need it the most.”
