MoneySupermarket has had a 48.88kWp solar array fitted to its headquarters in Flintshire. The £90,000 installation was installed free-of-charge by iGen Energy Ltd, as part of a power purchase agreement.

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.”

MoneySupermarket’s array is made up of over 200 Sunrise 235W panels and is expected to generate upwards of 40,000kWh of clean electricity a year; the equivalent annual usage of two average 2-storey, 3-bedroom houses. The installation of the array will see MoneySupermarket save a whopping 21 tonnes of CO2 per year.

Peter Hewart, Director at iGen Energy Ltd, said: “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.”
