There is a total surface area of 9,000 m2, of which 2,000 m2 is dedicated to the Construction area. This Leroy Merlin store therefore presents a concept that aims to provide a unique shopping experience, based on simplification and comfort for the customer throughout the whole process. From reception to purchase, the customer can rely on a large, specialised and available team of over 150 employees to help and advise on the different home projects.
Solar energy on Leroy Merlin Leiria's roof and parking lot
This is the first project of the different Leroy Merlin stores with two solar photovoltaic plants installed in the same space - one on the roof of the building and another in the parking lot(solar carport) producing about 38% of the store's energy needs.
The entire roof of the building was rented to produce clean and renewable energy, along with the solar carport with the possibility to offer protection to 78 vehicles in the parking lot of the Leroy Merlin store in Leiria. The combination of these two solar plants has a capacity of 500 kWp and will produce about 718 MWh of energy annually.
This project, aligned with the company's sustainability strategy, will avoid about 323 tons of CO2 annually, the equivalent of planting 8300 trees per year or the annual energy consumption of 144 households (equivalent/year).
At Leroy Merlin Positive Impact is our engine of development at all levels - human, environmental and economic.
We are aiming to reduce the carbon footprint of the operation by 50% by 2035. Helexia has been a very important partner on this energy transition path.
