Airtricity is to supply green electricity to Musgrave Group’s network of depots across Ireland in a deal worth Eur25 million. Under the terms of the contract, Airtricity will supply green electricity to all Musgrave Group owned facilities on the island of Ireland, both North and South and via an affinity scheme to its SuperValu, Centra and Daybreak stores in the Republic of Ireland and SuperValu, Centra and Mace stores in Northern Ireland. The agreement is the largest all-island green electricity deal of its kind.
The contract with Airtricity further underscores Musgrave Group’s commitment to supporting the development of Ireland’s renewable energy infrastructure and will provide the business with an opportunity to further reduce its carbon footprint and its operating costs. The new ‘green’ electricity contract with Airtricity extends Musgrave’s current use of electricity generated from renewables into Northern Ireland. The Airtricity deal will allow Musgrave displace more than 130,000 tonnes of CO2, which is the equivalent of taking more than 60,000 family cars off Irish roads annually.
