Renewable energy partnership with Leeds brewery

Leeds-based renewable energy provider Planet-U Energy is installing solar PV and electric vehicle (EV) charging technology, as well as helping with renewable energy procurement, for the Springwell headquarters of North Brewing Co, also in Leeds.

Located in a former tannery in the city, Springwell will see North Brewing Co double its capacity and open a new 500-person taproom, co-locating the firm’s bar and brewery headquarters under one roof. 

Following a site energy audit, Planet-U’s engineers installed 104 solar panels on the site’s roof space. This should produce annual cost savings of around £6,500 per year, with a return on investment of less than five years, says the company. The company also provided a 22 kW EV rapid charger installation which will charge vehicles on site in around one to two hours.
