Local BBC Derbyshire news reported how the Burnaston Toyota plant (just west of Derby), which produces Auris and Avensis cars, has finally 'switched on' a £10m solar panel project.
The 17,000 panels, in a scheme funded by British Gas, take up the ground space of 4 and a half football pitches.
Toyota Manufacturing UK hope the panels will generate around 5% of their total energy usage.
