Powering our marinas through renewables

Renewable energy

At boatfolk we are driven to do all we can to help reduce our impact on the incredible natural world that surrounds us. 

We are thrilled to say, that as of January 2021, we have sourced all our electricity from renewable energy sources.  This is not just to cover our own power consumption, but this switch also caters for the thousands of vessels using shore power in our beautiful locations around the UK. 

It is estimated that around 1,000 tonnes of carbon have been avoided per year by making this simple change.   We will not stop there and will look to any existing and innovative ways that energy can be harnessed locally at our marinas. 

We are on a continual journey to reduce our carbon footprint and are doing all we can to put our shoulder behind the global efforts to meet environmental targets and ensure that our stunning environment can be enjoyed by generations to come.
