DELI Lites Solar PV Project

Company Overview: DELI LITES Solar PV Project, Newry

DELI LITES is a gourmet café based in Newry, Warrenpoint and Dundalk as well as servicing Costa Coffee and Applegreen Service Stations, making a positive impact on the health and wellbeing throughout the island of Ireland.

With a vision to bring the best Irish sandwich to the world market, DELI LITES has expanded its reach, employing approximately 300 individuals and exporting products globally since its establishment in 1994. The company’s dedication to responsible practices led to the implementation of a solar photovoltaic (PV) project, aiming to reduce carbon emissions, achieve energy efficiency, and contribute to a cleaner and greener future.

Project Brief

‘Be Responsible’ is one of the key Brand Pillars at DELI LITES, so we’re proud to have played our part in helping them achieve this.

From farm to kitchen, DELI LITES are aware of the impact they make on the environment, which is why they have adopted sustainable practices, with the aim to be net carbon neutral by 2025 and have pledged to send zero waste to landfill by 2022. One of the steps in this journey was the installation of Solar Panels to avoid the burning of fossil fuels and reduce CO2 emissions.

The DELI LITES Solar PV Project, in collaboration with MarVal Power, exemplifies the commitment of both partners to sustainability and environmental responsibility.

System Design

MarVal Power installed a 40kWp rooftop solar system, generating approximately 35,000kWH by converting solar energy into electricity through the photovoltaic panels.

Our installation was aligned with a existing solar panels installed in 2013, which means a further 44,000 kWh of energy can be saved every year.

Project Benefits

Environmental Impact

The DELI LITES Solar PV Project is producing impressive environmental benefits.

  • By generating 35,000 kWh of clean energy each year, DELI LITES saves approximately 7 tonnes of carbon emissions annually.
  • This reduction in greenhouse gas emissions plays a crucial role in mitigating climate change and protecting the environment for future generations.

Energy Savings

In addition to the direct energy generation from the new installation, the solar PV project aligns with an existing solar panel system installed in 2013.

  • Together, they are saving an additional 44,000 kWh of energy per year.
  • To put this into perspective, these energy savings are equivalent to the average annual consumption of eleven four-person households in the UK.
