jaguar land rover has completed the installation of the UK’s largest rooftop solar panel array at its new state-of-the art engine manufacturing centre in south staffordshire. more than 21,000 photovoltaic panels, with a capacity of 5.8MW, have been fixed to the roof of the manufacturing plant, with plans to increase this to over 6.3MW by the end of the year. the world-class plant will manufacture the first family of premium, advanced technology engines, ingenium, to be entirely designed and built in-house by jaguar land rover for exclusive use in the company’s future vehicles. the jaguar XE, debuting in 2015, will be the first vehicle equipped with these four-cylinder engines.
