Tesco to source energy directly from wind and solar farms

Tesco is to source electricity directly from wind and solar farms

Tesco has unveiled plans to source green electricity directly from wind and solar farms and solar panels on 187 UK stores.

The drive, backed by Tesco’s sustainability partner WWF, is part of the grocer’s push to use 100 per cent renewable electricity across the group by 2030 and will save 90,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.

The scheme, described by Tesco as the biggest of its kind in UK retail, includes the creation of five onshore wind farms and one solar farm and will create more than 400 new jobs in the UK renewables industry.
