Sainsbury’s joined the Green Energy revolution way (way) before any other supermarket – we built them their very own on-site turbine at their distribution depot in East Kilbride, Scotland. This was the UK’s very first fully commercial windmill because we sold the power to them without a premium and we built the windmill without a subsidy.
This was the first of our Merchant Wind Power projects, an innovative model that brings wind energy direct to big users, in a logical extension of our Embedded Supply model - now widely replicated – not least by us. Find out more about Merchant Wind Power.
