The UK Port of Milford Haven in Wales is continuing its commitment to renewable energy by switching its energy provider to Octopus Energy
The switch means that 100% of the port’s electricity usage is guaranteed to be coming from renewable sources.
UK-based Octopus Energy supplies energy only from renewable energy sources. It takes power from wind, water and solar, as well as energy generated from the natural breakdown of food and farm waste
Tam Bardell, the port’s Estate Efficiency Manager, said: “We have already invested heavily in renewable energy and efficiency across our estate. Solar panels, heat pumps, insulation, biomass, LED lighting, electric vehicles, marine renewables development and smart energy innovations are just some of the ways we are making a difference.
"We already export more renewable electricity than we use and by switching to Octopus Energy we are continuing our work towards lowering our direct impact in the current climate emergency, and doing what we can to contribute towards the UK’s net zero targets.”
The port has already invested heavily in renewable energy across its estate, and the Liddeston Solar Array has been in operation for almost five years.
