Guernsey’s electricity usage has fallen 10% since the island has been in lockdown.
With all but essential staff working from home and the majority of children out of school, Guernsey Electricity have reported a dramatic reduction in electric use.
The island will now largely run from low carbon renewable energy imports. The power station is likely to only be needed for testing.
The island saw a reduction of 100 megawatt hours on the day lockdown was announced, with the first day of lockdown seeing even less energy being used.
