Ferryspeed Goes Green with Solar Installations in Jersey

Ferryspeed Goes Green with Solar Installations in Jersey

Ferryspeed has taken another step towards sustainable operations by installing a rooftop solar photovoltaic system on our newly built sorting facility in La Collette, Jersey.

This installation consists of 698 solar panels and is the largest privately owned renewable energy installation in the Channel Islands. The solar power generated by the panels will contribute towards the charging of electric vehicles on site, as well as the wider operations of the buildings, helping to offset the amount of energy used.

Nick Green, Group Executive Director of Ferryspeed, said:

“We are not just focused on the numbers, we are also focused on the bigger picture and for us, this is a big win! We must show evidence of the supply chain and eco margins. This is a huge, long-term investment for Ferryspeed, and we do the walking, not just the talking. We are so happy with the solar installation and strongly recommend SunWorks to any businesses considering going green”.

Mark Brandon, Managing Director of SunWorks, said:

“I’m proud of the installation and the hard work of our team in the face of unprecedented challenges with sourcing materials and then adverse weather throughout the installation.”

Mark also commented: “Ferryspeed has made a bold first move, and this marks an important first step by opening the conversation for further private commercial energy generators across the Channel Islands. There have been lessons learned by all stakeholders and it’s going to be great to see how solar technology can play an increasing role over the coming years.”

A portion of the solar power will also be sold to Jersey Electricity as part of their dedicated electrical service to the export of solar power.

Jersey Electricity’s Director of Commercial Services, Peter Cadiou, added:

“We are pleased to partner with Ferryspeed, supported by SunWorks, on this project. JE is committed to building the Island’s energy sovereignty and ensuring that all Islanders can benefit from locally-generated renewable energy, and this partnership helps to achieve both objectives.”

At Ferryspeed, we are dedicated to developing our use of renewable technology and hope to demonstrate to our customers that we are committed to green solutions.
