The wholesaler is currently installing more than 2000 panels across the roofs of its Basingstoke, Bristol, Leicester, and Dagenham branches, with work on Manchester, Newcastle, Birmingham, Doncaster, and Leeds to follow in 2023. The group already installed 2000 solar panels across its Enfield HQ and Sidcup branches in 2015.
