Improving our Environmental Sustainability

Cleaner, Greener Guernsey Post

Here at Guernsey Post we are working hard to minimise our impact on the environment. We have recently made the switch from diesel vans to an all-electric delivery fleet and this investment has had a significant positive effect on the environment; an electric vehicle fleet rather than diesel means we will avoid producing more than 150 tons of carbon a year.

Working on Sunshine

Guernsey Electricity and Guernsey Post have completed the installation of the largest solar photovoltaic (PV) system in the Channel Islands on the roof of postal headquarters, Envoy House.

Electricity is now being generated from the 654 panels mounted on the roof of Guernsey Post and is feeding directly into the Island's network, resulting in all islanders benefitting from locally produced solar energy.

The panels installed will produce more than 200,000kWh each year, which is equivalent to the electricity required to power Guernsey Post's electric vans, with some energy to spare.

The project progresses Guernsey Electricity's introduction of community scale renewable generation, which is owned and operated by the company.
