Brighton Palace Pier has sealed a deal with Octopus Energy to run on 100% renewable energy until the end of 2021.

The pier, which is one of the UK’s most popular seaside attractions, expects to save more than 1,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere – equivalent to taking 319 petrol cars off the roads for two years.

Zoisa Walton, Director of Octopus Energy for Business, said: Reducing carbon emissions has never been more important and we’re delighted that our Brighton Business Power tariff will not only help sustainably power the local business community, but also support important causes in the area, such as the Clock Tower Sanctuary.

“Last year the council declared a climate emergency and is working hard to implement measures which will reduce emissions and support the city’s transition to a carbon-neutral economy. We are proud to be part of the journey, providing 100% renewable energy from local sources.”
