Working to counter the inherently environmentally destructive nature of a car-based commute, British firm Town Centre Car Parks  has committed to making their public car parks environmentally friendly by installing the largest urban solar photovoltaic array in the UK. Situated on the roof of the Clarence Dock multi-story car park in Leeds city center, the system provides 15% of the car park’s electricity, reducing carbon emissions by 55 tonnes each year. The company is also trialling the use of LED lighting  in some of their car parks to further reduce their impact on the environment. Additionally, Town Center has started to install electric vehicle  charging stations in their car parks.
