MoneySupermarket checks out green energy

MoneySupermarket has installed a PV array on the roof of its Flintshire headquarters.

Worth £90,000, the installation was provided for free by iGen Energy under a Solar Power Purchase Agreement and will supply 41,183kWh of clean electricity per year.

MoneySupermarket says it will save over 21,000kg of CO2 annually and supply electricity whilst system owners iGen will benefit financially from the Feed-in Tariff.

Alan Cairns, hr director at MoneySupermarket, said: “We wanted to show our environmental credentials in a way that not only underlines our commitment to reducing the amount of CO2 we produce as a business, but we also wanted to have a visual reminder in place so our staff and visitors see our green activity in action. Installing solar panels on our roof has certainly done this. Combined with other ‘green’ activities, this will help us save a significant amount of CO2 in 2012 and in years to come.”

Peter Hewart, director at iGen Energy Ltd, added: “It has been a great privilege to work with, and be chosen by, a great company like MoneySupermarket. They are known throughout the country as experts in value for money, so delivering this project which both saves on energy bills and helps them achieve their environmental goals is something we are very proud of.”
