Project     Sunflower and Harmony Programmes

BP are not only one of the worlds leaders in the supply and implementation of alternative energy, in 1996 they embarked on a pioneering programme of integrating photovoltaic panels on the canopies of their fuel stations. There are 76 such canopies in the UK with an area equivalent to 40 football pitches and they can be found across the UK, from Scotland right down to the south coast of England. This scheme makes BP the single largest generators of photovoltaic electricity in the UK.
