Making the Most of Every Sunny Day

Solar Energy

As we head into the darker days of the winter months, we are glad of every bit of daylight. It is good for our health as it boosts our immune system, lowers blood pressure and improves our mood.

But how do we make the most of the shorter, winter days?

The best way to get fresh sunlight is to get up and out early to enjoy the added hours of morning sunlight.

Have a look at The Guardian’s practical guide for getting more light now the nights are drawing in – find it here.

Here at Husqui, we are also excited to see the sun!

Our new solar array has been installed and is fully operational.

As a renewable energy source, solar power doesn’t cause any pollution or damaging emissions, so it’s better for the planet, our community and customers. 

At Husqui, we are showing our commitment to reducing our impact on the environment through a range of initiatives. Some large – like this one – and others that are smaller but still significant.
