Rooftop solar panels are to be installed on a further 70 Premier Inn hotels.
The new installations will have a total capacity of more than 1.6MW, taking its solar portfolio on Premier Inn sites to 3MW – that’s equivalent to powering around 2.9 million washing machine cycles.
The project will be developed and managed by Anesco.
James Pitcher, Whitbread Director of Sustainability said: “Solar technology is a key part of our sustainability programme and helps ensure we always act as a force for good. As a long term investment, solar is a fantastic proposition for us.”
