    BBC News Online

    The largest solar PV array in Jersey, installed on the roofs at La Collette Power Station, is now live and generating power.

    The array is expected to generate enough to power 12 average homes every year, Jersey Electricity (JE) said.

    It's four times the size of the one JE installed as a trial in 2013.

    JE's CEO, Chris Ambler said the solar project "will diversify energy sources to include local renewables".

    "Although introducing local solar will not result in further carbon reductions, solar PV sits comfortably alongside our existing imported decarbonised power," he said.

    A report in 2015 said that Guernsey's total hotel bed stock was about 3,000, while the average hotel had 70 beds.

    Including self-catering and guest accommodation, there are about 5,000 beds.

    Quote Message: The Admiral Park project will see Comprop once again injecting significant private sector money into the economy - which will mean jobs for local residents, expansion opportunities for island businesses, and a significant boost for the tourism industry. It also presents the first new construction of large scale offices for a number of years which will give added flexibility to the office market. from Steve Marie Managing Director, Comprop

  5. Disabled man calls for GST exemption

    BBC Radio Jersey

    A Jersey man who's both deaf and blind is calling for taxes on technology for islanders with disabilities to be removed.

    Wheelchairs are currently exempt from the island's standard 5% Goods and Services Tax, but Peter Le Feuvre wants that to extend to technology that helps disabled people live independently.

    He said he can avoid the additional cost when ordering equipment through the hospital or a charity, but not if he buys it himself.

    A Premier Inn hotel is being built in Guernsey.

    Comprop, which also built the Waitrose and B&Q buildings on the same site, said that this latest project uses two-thirds of the remaining land on the Admiral Park site.

    Local company JW Rihoy has been given the building contract.
