With over 240 years of horticultural excellence, Lincoln-based Pennells Garden Centres has earned its reputation as one of the nation’s premier destinations for all things botanical. As a family-owned business since 1780, they pair generations of expertise with a passion for environmental stewardship.
Furthering their commitment to sustainability, Pennells recently installed three major solar PV systems across their Yorkshire and Lincolnshire locations. Their new 375kWp solar capacity - consisting of 972 high-efficiency Solar PV panels - will significantly reduce Pennells’ carbon footprint and energy consumption.
The three locations featuring new solar energy installations are:
Cleethorpes: A 90kWp system with 240 Canadian Solar 375w panels across a trapezoid roof.
Sleaford: A 98.28kWp system with 252 JA Solar 390w panels atop a pantile roof.
Lincoln: The largest system at 187.2kWp, with 480 JA Solar 390w panels distributed across multiple roof planes.
With their new solar PV systems, Pennells Garden Centres continues their 240-year journey focused on quality, customer service and environmental responsibility. They proudly display their commitment to sustainability with plaques celebrating their progress towards net zero carbon emissions. As one of Britain’s most enduring family plant nurseries, Pennells looks forward to another 200+ years serving communities across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
