Toyota installs 17,000 solar panels


Toyota has started work on installing a 17,000 panel solar array to power operations at its Derbyshire plant in the UK after the local authority granted planning approval for the ambitious project.
Toyota says the array will be capable of supplying enough energy to build around 7,000 cars a year at the plant, as well as saving the company 2,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year.
British Gas will install and fund the panels, which should begin supplying power to the plant in July.
