Enerpower are thrilled to announce the successful installation of a 1.3MW solar system for DPD Ireland, at their headquarters in Athlone.
DPD Ireland, a prominent player in the Irish parcel delivery market, has shown its dedication to sustainability and environmental responsibility. They recognised the importance of renewable energy and contacted Enerpower, a leading provider of sustainable energy solutions, to turn their headquarters in Athlone, into a beacon of solar power generation. DPD was committed to minimising its environmental impact by adopting eco friendly practices and reducing its carbon emissions.

The Solar System Installation
Once Enerpower were contacted, a team of experienced engineers went on site to determine the best renewable energy solution for DPD Ireland. After an initial examination and future conversations, a 1.3MW solar system was seen to be the best option and would give DPD Ireland the best return on investment.
The 1.3MW solar system consisted of 512 leapton solar panels and 2 Huawei inverters. This would cover 11.3% of the facilities rooftop. The solar panels were strategically angled at a 5 ° tilt, with 376 panels south-west facing and 137 panels north-east facing in order to get the most efficient outcome.
According to a spokesperson at DPD, “the new solar system is able to provide up to 11% of the hub’s electricity demands and deliver an emissions reduction of c.50 tons of C02 annually”.
DPD Ireland’s decision to install a 1.3MW solar system at their headquarters is a remarkable step forward in their commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility.
Colin Kennedy, CIO of DPD Ireland, commented on this milestone “This rooftop solar array is a testament to our dedication to sustainability and our proactive approach towards reducing our carbon footprint. We are proud to have partnered with Enerpower, whose expertise and commitment to renewable energy have been instrumental in making this project a success”.
Enerpowers CEO, Owen Power also expressed his enthusiasm about the project “We are delighted to have worked with DPD Ireland in this forward-thinking project. The Successful installation of the 1.3MW solar system demonstrates our commitment to driving the transition towards a more sustainable future. We look forward to continuing to support DPD Ireland in their sustainability journey”.
Enerpowers expertise in renewable energy solutions has played a crucial role in bringing this project to life. As the solar panels soak up the Irish sun, they are not just generating electricity, they are also lighting the way towards a brighter, more sustainable future.
