Project Overview

While excelling in the automotive industry, Bowker Motor Group also demonstrates a commitment to environmental sustainability. The company recently embarked on a project with Low Carbon Energy to install Solar PV systems across its Preston and Blackburn sites. This initiative reflects their dedication to reducing their environmental impact and promoting renewable energy solutions. Bowker Motor Group’s proactive approach to green initiatives sets them apart as a forward-thinking and responsible industry leader.

The project consists of 1,494, 490-Watt Q Cells Q Peak duo ML-GLL+ panels and is spread across multiple roofs between the two sites. Becoming fully operational in early 2023, combined, the two sites will produce 732,060 kWh of clean energy each year, and save an impressive 247 tonnes of carbon.

Andy Gee, Chief Financial Officer at Bowker Motor Group had the following to say about the project: “Bowker Motor Group’s commitment to zero carbon and sustainability started over 20 years ago. We believe that businesses have a vital role in mitigating climate change. For car dealerships, this encompasses energy-efficient operations, waste reduction, and renewable energy sources, such as solar PV systems.

“That’s why Bowker Motor Group has prioritised a transition to a zero-carbon operation. It aligns with government regulations and environmental commitments and presents opportunities for cost savings and innovation. And that’s where Low Carbon Energy come in.

“Working with Low Carbon Energy on our solar PV system has been a fantastic experience. Their expertise and professionalism are top-notch, which is evident in the impressive system they designed and installed for us across all roof spaces of our dealerships.

“Since the system became fully operational in early 2023, it’s on target to save the equivalent of planting over 6,000 trees in carbon emissions every year. This environmental result aligns perfectly with our mission at Bowker Motor Group, where we deliver excellence in our automotive services and create a positive change outside the industry too.

“Thanks to Low Carbon Energy, we can continue our commitment to sustainable practices while offering our customers a premium buying experience.”
