We believe that everyone on Guernsey should be able to use and benefit from renewable electricity. We’ve been identifying locations to install large scale PV solar arrays at various sites across the island to feed into the network.
Whilst we await further direction from energy policy, we are delivering local renewable energy generation. We have some of the largest community scale solar arrays installed in the Channel Islands which feed 358kW of renewable electricity into the grid, and we have a very healthy pipeline of PV projects which we are actively progressing.
We believe that placing environmental sustainability at the core of the business is not only the right thing to do, it also makes good business sense and benefits the island as we continue our energy transition towards a low-carbon future.
We will continue to invest in distributed solar arrays across the island with the goal of reaching a total installed capacity of up to 20MW by 2050.
Our Environmental Sustainability Strategy underpins how we intend to deliver the Climate Change Statement across the business, using the framework of our ISO14001:2015-aligned Environmental Management System (EMS). Read more here.
