Case Study


The project:

Prodrive, a British engineering company, have partnered with the Low Carbon Hub to host our biggest solar installation yet. A grand total of 2446 solar panels is helping the company reduce their carbon footprint and energy bills, generate funds to benefit local communities and will be looked after for their twenty year life by the Low Carbon Hub - all at no cost whatsoever to the business.

The panels have been installed at Prodrive headquarters in Banbury, where most of the business’s engineering, design and manufacturing takes place, building and racing familiar names like Aston Martin, MINI and VW. We’re pleased to be reducing the carbon footprint of this industry, alongside Prodrive’s own efforts through innovation on electric and hybrid vehicles. The business is an iconic part of Banbury’s scene, so we hope that the panels will spread awareness of climate change and energy in the area, as well as reaching Prodrive’s team of over 500 people.

The 2446 solar panels stacked on end would be as tall as the Atlas Mountains, and save the equivalent COevery year of driving a fossil fuel powered car to the moon and back!
