High street food chain LEON has switched from a mix of UK renewable energy to 100% solar power for the rest of the summer.

The move, which began on the summer solstice, is intended to celebrate the company’s new ‘Sunny Inside’ summer menu.

The solar energy that will power LEON for the summer will come from more than 1,000 sites across the UK, provided by their supplier Opus Energy.

Kirsty Saddler, Director of Brand and Marketing at LEON said: “At LEON we worship at the altar of the sun. We think it is the most epic source of energy for us here on earth.”

Steve James, Director Corporate Solutions at Opus Energy, said: “Solar power plays a vital role in our renewable energy mix and the UK is one of the world leaders in solar deployment.

“At Opus Energy we are very proud of our ability to provide 100% sustainable, cleanly sourced energy to our customers, as well as supporting those who want to generate their own power and make the most of our natural resources, especially in the midst of this year’s heatwave.”
