Community solar projects

We believe that everyone in Guernsey should be able to use and benefit from renewable electricity. Guernsey Electricity has installed some of the largest solar arrays in the Channel Islands which feed more than 350kW of renewable electricity into the grid for everyone to use.

Guernsey Electricity is committed to providing an affordable and sustainable energy supply, while maintaining a responsible attitude towards the environment. We're planning for the future and leading change in the energy sector that is part of the global solution.

Grow Limited

In 2023 Guernsey Electricity worked in conjunction with The Little Green Energy Company to install the vast community-scale solar array at Grow Limited’s newly redeveloped headquarters.

The 310 photovoltaic (PV) panels will produce 129-kilowatt peak power (kWp). That’s enough electricity to supply power to approximately 40 homes. The electricity feeds directly into the Island’s network so that all our customers can benefit from locally generated, clean solar energy.

The Ladies College

Guernsey Electricity and The Little Green Energy Company worked together to install a community-scale solar array on the roof of The Ladies’ College in Les Gravées, which began generating in January 2023. The 292 photovoltaic (PV) panels will generate an estimated 127,900 units within the first year - this is enough electricity to power around 34 homes, which will make it the third largest PV scale on-Island. 

King George Fifth centre

The  45 panel array contributes up to 15kW of electricity to the network.  

Longue Hougue, Guernsey Waste

The solar panel arrays have been installed on the roof of Guernsey Waste’s facilities building and the reuse store at the Household Waste & Recycle Centre. Together, they contribute 31kW of electricity to the network. At its best, the system has generated enough electricity in one day to power 19 homes for 24 hours.

 

Envoy House

In a joint project between Guernsey Electricity and Guernsey Post, this array of 654 panels on the roof of the Guernsey Post Headquarters is one of the largest solar photovoltaic (PV) systems in the Channel Islands.

The panels installed produce more than 200,000kWh each year which feeds directly into the network so that all our customers can benefit from locally generated, clean solar energy. 

Electricity House, Vale

In 2018 we installed 309 roof mounted solar panels on a building at Electricity House, Northside, Vale, which at the time was the largest solar array in the Channel Islands, generating over 100kWp of power.

The electricity feeds directly into the Island’s network so that all our customers can benefit from locally generated, clean solar energy.
