The Atrato Onsite Energy Process

Our highly experienced renewable energy team offers a comprehensive design, installation and maintenance service. Atrato Onsite Energy’s offering is fully funded by us and requires zero capex investment from our client. 

The process begins with a technical assessment to evaluate your energy usage, the irradiation at the site and the suitability of the building (where applicable). We then design a fully bespoke solar array and handle all planning permissions and grid connection applications. 

A power purchase agreement (PPA) and a sub-lease for the space are drawn up and executed with your tenant. Our solar PV systems are ethically sourced via our module procurement policy, and we work with local contractors that meet our robust health and safety standards. Atrato Onsite Energy is responsible for the operations and maintenance of the system over the lifetime of the PPA and will manage any surplus energy generation, often supplying it back to the grid.​ 

Nissan factory

Nissan Motor Manufacturing​

Atrato Onsite Energy has invested in one of the largest behind-the-meter solar projects in the UK.

The Nissan automobile manufacturing site in Sunderland is one of the best-known industrial sites in Britain, where one of the world’s leading car makers produces its own electric vehicles. 

Atrato Onsite Energy has invested £10.6m to develop a 20MWp solar PV system, which will have around 37,000 panels generating cheap renewable electricity for use onsite.  The project is being delivered by Engenera Renewables Limited as the installation contractor. 

The 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Nissan not only gives the company a green source of power for its facility, but provides greater long term certainty on pricing at a significant saving to current market prices.

The 20MWp system is expected to generate 10% of the plant’s total demand.
