Miles Toyota Installs Solar Panels

In line with Miles Toyota and Toyota New Zealand’s long-term sustainability objectives, Miles Toyota recently installed 171 individual solar panels on their roof in an effort to utilise more sustainable energy sources. A project that’s been in the works for a while, a total of 70 kW of solar panels now sit atop the central city building helping to power all areas of the business including vehicle sales, parts, service, and administration – in addition to the wider Miles Group team members that operate out of the building.

Long term benefits

With the help of these new solar panels, we look forward to utilising more sustainable energy sources in the future and reducing our reliance on traditional energy sources.

Our Diamond Toitū Enviromark Certification

When it comes to the environment, Miles Toyota is taking action to shape a better tomorrow in all facets of our business. Installing these solar panels is just one of the many steps we’re taking. We’re proud to have achieved the Toitū Enviromark Diamond Certification, which marks five years at this level and highlights our commitment to protecting our environment. In order to achieve (and maintain) this certification, we must implement and maintain environmental programmes to address significant environmental aspects, ensure processes are in place to monitor these impacts, and have effective operational control over our activities so that they are effectively managed and unlikely to cause negative impact (just to name a few!).

Thank you to the team at Solar Power NZ for installing our solar panels – a feat which we’re sure was a little more complicated than your standard business or home given the day-to-day movements of our dealership.
