About Guernsey Energy
A brief history
Gas lit the streets for a few hours at the start and end of each day. Public buildings, shops and larger houses generally had gas lighting, but most working people didn’t light their homes with gas until the end of the century.
The Guernsey Gas Light Company Limited was formed. Gas was used in local homes, proving to be a safe and cost-effective fuel for heating, cooking and hot water. All local gas was generated from coal at production plants in St Peter Port.
It was decided to manufacture mains gas from Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) Butane and Propane. This improved both the quality and safety of the fuel and enabled the introduction of a modern range of gas appliances. We could now supply gas throughout the island via our mains network and through bottled gas.
We became endorsed by the Energy Saving Trust, a leading and trusted organisation helping people to save energy, every day. We were the first local company to be endorsed and the only independent Energy Saving Trust-trained team in Guernsey to help recommend cost-saving and environmentally friendly initiatives.
We rebranded to Guernsey Energy signifying our new direction. The change marks the beginning of our exciting journey to a Net Zero future and our role in supporting the island’s energy transition.
