Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency

Embarking on a continuous program, we tirelessly work to optimise our park’s energy consumption. Our measures encompass outfitting all rental caravans with heating timers, double glazing, and energy-efficient LED lighting.

Streetlights across the park have are transitioning to LED, providing heightened brightness, prolonged lifespan, and significant savings of 46% in energy costs and CO2 emissions. Solar-powered street lights with PIR detectors which enhance brightness upon motion detection are being rolled out across the park. LED lighting brightens our Reception at Trelay Holiday Park. Additionally, we’ve implemented measures such as insulating hot water pipes in our touring facilities building and water treatment room.

Proud Partners in Sustainability

We take pride in our partnership with a Carbon Neutral Electric contract, ensuring that 100% of the park's electricity is sourced from Renewable Energy Guarantees supported by natural UK sources like solar, wind, and hydro.

Electric Vehicles and Innovative Maintenance

In our Maintenance department, an all-electric Cushman Utility Vehicle leads the way. We actively promote local EV charging points in Looe, providing convenient options for customers to charge their EVs nearby. Our commitment extends to investing in cutting-edge electric maintenance equipment, including a battery-powered strimmer and high-impact leaf blower, complemented by battery-powered power tools.

Recycling Excellence

Collaborating with our waste contractor, we prioritize responsible recycling practices. All collected recycling is processed within the UK, eliminating contributions to landfills and the risk of marine pollution. We encourage our customers to recycle responsibly, offering Dry Mixed Recycling containers, Glass Collection, and Food Waste Collection. Clear signage on all bins clarifies recycling guidelines, and our on-site team diligently pre-sorts waste to minimize contamination.
