Leviton is making a £600,000 investment into solar energy at its Glenrothes manufacturing facility.
The solar panel project at Glenrothes is part of Leviton’s CN2030 sustainability program to achieve company-wide Carbon Neutrality by 2030 and its ambition to achieve NetZero Carbon by 2050, said Ross Goldman, Chief Sustainability Officer of Leviton Network Solutions.
The carbon-neutral facility serves as Leviton Network Solutions EMEA headquarters, where it manufactures fibre optic and copper cabling and pre-terminated cable assemblies.
The investment is part of a multi-million-pound development project at the Glenrothes site, including new production equipment and a customer showroom.
“The ability to generate solar energy onsite will help us offset soaring energy costs in the UK and supports our commitment to reducing carbon emissions, developing clean, renewable energy, and reducing our carbon footprint,” said Ian Wilkie, Managing Director of Leviton Network Solutions Europe.
Leviton said planning and networking approvals are already in place. The installation will start in January and is planned to be completed in early 2023.
