Is Le Friquet hotel in Castel parish the most energy efficient hotel in Guernsey?  Producing hot water demands energy.  In 2008 David Hubert of Future Energy Systems (CI) Ltd. installed twenty Schott panels of 16 evacuated tubes each (320 evacuated tubes in total) on the roof of Le Friquet hotel to supply hot water to their guests and residents.   The solar panels preheat three large hot water cyclinders that supply the hotel’s needs.  The hotel has 29 rooms and four apartments.
