The Green Electrician, one of the UK’s leading solar PV and energy saving specialists, is set to expand into South Wales as a result of a new joint venture formed with Milford Haven Port Authority in Pembrokeshire.
Working together the aim is to improve access to energy efficient technologies for homes and businesses throughout South Wales.
The new company, headquartered in Pembrokeshire, sees the UK’s “energy port” for the first time significantly turn its attention towards the opportunities presented by renewable energy.
One of the business’ first tasks has been to install over £1.25 million of photovoltaic (PV) panels on port and port tenant buildings across Milford Docks, Pembroke Port and Cedar Court in Milford Haven. The installation, which includes Wales’ single largest integrated roof top array on the Phoenix Bowl at Milford Docks, will reduce the port’s carbon emissions by the equivalent of taking over 57,000 cars off the road.
Alec Don, Chief Executive of Milford Haven Port, comments: “This is a fantastic opportunity to extend the reach of renewable energy in South Wales. The positive effect will be immediate with the creation of new jobs for the region and the installation of solar panels on our buildings which will significantly reduce our carbon footprint.
Commenting on the formation of The Green Electrician South Wales, Rupert Higgin, MD of The Green Electrician, comments: “It’s an exciting time for the business to grow our presence in Wales and partner with such a respected authority. Milford Haven Port is an ideal partner for the business as it is intrinsically linked with energy and this initial contract gives a great platform to extend the benefits of energy efficient technologies across the region.”
