Staveley Mill Yard: 1,533 solar panels powering businesses

December 06th 2023 Case study

Staveley Mill Yard is a four-acre "green" business park in the Lake District National Park comprising over 40 retail and industrial units. 

With lots of roof space available, the decision was made to install a large, state-of-the-art photovoltaic system, funded by Close Brothers Asset Finance through a Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme loan agreement. 

As a result, the 1,533 roof-mounted solar panels, and nine Tesla Powerwall Batteries supply around 593 MWh of power annually to the business park's tenants, helping make it more sustainable while also saving significant cost. 

"It goes a long way to reducing the carbon footprint of all the businesses on site and adds to the 14,000 deciduous hardwood trees we planted in the village. Close Brothers were very professional and flexible when accommodating our requirements."
