The dealership, in Brome, Sufolk, which specialises in used prestige cars including Porsches and Bentleys has just been given planning permission for two wind turbines.

They will generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of 2,500 homes allowing the company to operate completely on its own power!

‘Even though the car industry is regarded as potentially a high carbon emitter, we all have a contribution to make,’ said Carl Humphrey, from Roy Humphrey group.

‘Our GPS and communications technologies cut down on unnecessary mileage and now our wind turbines could save more than 7,000 tonnes of carbon every year.

‘In addition, we will have a long term stable price for our electricity where price fluctuations have been a major headache over the last few years. This not only provides us with the green credentials needed in today’s business environment, but makes our business more sustainable as a whole.’

It is expected construction of the wind turbines at the Eye Airfield Industrial Estate will commence in Spring 2011.
