We had solar panels installed at our cake bakery (cakery?) last month, which means a third of the energy we now use each day comes directly from the sun. That’s not too bad seeing as it’s only February and we’re not exactly near the equator. This will only improve as the spring and summer months edge closer. So far, in less than 4 weeks we’ve saved over 3 tonnes of CO2 emissions by going solar, which is a huge environmental achievement.
Talking of emissions, we also displace approximately a further 100kg of CO2 each month by having any production food waste collected and fed into a biomass generator. The energy produced is used to help power local homes and the bi-product created is also used by farmers to fertilise their crops. Hopefully these small steps and more will help us leave things a little better for our next generation of bakers.
