Family-run J&J Motors is on the road to lower bills and a greener future following the installation of 266 PV panels at its Nissan, Ford and Suzuki showrooms at Cross Hands, near Llanelli.

J&J Motors will buy zero carbon electricity under a PPA agreement for the 20 year lease period.

John Plimmer, J&J Motors managing director, said: “With the size of our premises, we are always looking at ways of reducing our overheads”.

At the Ford dealership, 66 PV panels were fitted in a 16.5kWp scheme producing 14,600kWh of energy, saving 5.7 tonnes of CO2. It would have cost about £20,000 to buy the system.

120 PV panels were installed at the Nissan dealership in a 30kWp scheme producing 26,550kWh of energy, saving 9.3 tonnes of CO2. It would have cost about £35,000 to buy this system.

At the Suzuki dealership, 80 PV panels were fitted in a 20kWp scheme producing 17,940kWh of energy, saving 6.8 tonnes of CO2. It would have cost about £25,000 to buy the system.
