Tesco installs wind turbines at three DCs
New York City — Tesco has installed wind turbines, each with a capacity of nearly 1 MW, at three of its grocery distribution centers.
The company installed two of the 90-meter, 800kW wind turbines at its distribution center near Newport in Wales, BusinessGreen reported. The other turbines are at two sites in England’s Midlands region.
The turbines will provide about a fifth of the energy needs of the Daventry distribution centers, and about half of the energy requirements of the Newport site. Tesco can sell any surplus power it generates to the national electricity grid.
Tesco said the turbines will prevent the emission of about 3,200 tons of CO2 every year.
