Belectric UK has completed a 3.42MW rooftop install atop Rolls-Royce’s manufacturing plant in Bristol, funded through a power purchase agreement. The install is expected to generate 3GWh of electricity each year, all of which will be used by the engineering giant’s defence aerospace manufacturing facility. Rolls-Royce is also expected to realise “immediate savings” on its energy costs by purchasing the electricity at a discounted rate through the PPA, which will also safeguard it from future energy price increases.
