As the iconic double-decker buses and cups of tea in the image above clearly hint, this story is about something in the UK.

That means there is enough power created in a year (4.6 million kWh) to build around 7,000 cars. That sounds good (and, well, it is) but it's still only around five percent of the energy needed at Toyota's Burnaston plant, where Toyota makes the Auris hybrid, Auris and Avensis.
