Nestlé, the world’s largest food and drinks company, has announced this week that it is now generating electricity from its new, self-funded, nine-turbine wind farm in Scotland. The facility, located in Dumfries & Galloway, will generate 125GWh of power annually – enough to cover half of the company’s energy needs in the UK.

“We all have a part to play in reducing climate change and its effects while making sure that we safeguard our planet’s future.” – Nestlé UK and Ireland’s chief executive, Stefano Agostini.

Although the cost of the wind farm wasn’t disclosed, it goes without saying that a development like this isn’t cheap, hence why very few businesses are able to buy wind farms and are opting for solar PV arrays instead.

Solar PV arrays harness energy from sunlight to produce clean, emission-free, low cost electricity. They are a great option for many businesses who are looking to save money, control their energy costs and contribute to environmental change.
