Why Going Green is good for business

Going green with your Business Energy has huge benefits to our planet.

Your business can show that you are doing everything you can to help reach the Government set targets to help reduce Green Gas Emissions by 80% by 2050. Going Green also allows you to reduce your carbon footprint and show customers and other stakeholders your commitment to the environment and sustainability.

Here at Energy Buzz, we work closely with multiple suppliers that will offer Green Electricity and Green Gas contracts at affordable rates, meaning that the energy that you purchase for your business comes from a 100% renewable energy source.

When taking out a 100% renewable energy contract with your chosen supplier, you will receive a REGO certificate (Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin) confirming that the energy that you’ve purchased, comes from exactly that, a 100% renewable energy source.

This certificate can be brandished in your foyer or reception area, and on your website and even email footers for your clients to see that you are doing your bit for the environment.

What is renewable energy?

Renewable energy is energy that is collected from renewable resources that are naturally replenished.

It includes sources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat. Renewable energy stands in contrast to fossil fuels, which are being used far more frequently and are more harmful to our planet. We generate renewable energy from energy sources such as Solar Panels, Wind turbines, hydropower, and biomass energy.

Renewable energy is also called “clean energy” or “green power” because it doesn’t pollute the air or the water. Businesses can also generate their own energy and then sell it back to the grid by using Feed-in-tariff incentives that the government have but in place.

Carbon neutral gas

This is made up of 10% biogas, produced here in the UK from renewable sources such as farm waste. We neutralise the emissions from the gas our customers use by investing in verified carbon reduction schemes.

Why is renewable energy important?

Much of the world relies on non-renewable energy to heat their homes and businesses, power their electronic devices, and power their cars. Once these energy sources are used up, they will be gone forever. Developing technologies that can efficiently use renewable energy sources is critical to our future.

Solar Panels

What Is Solar PV?
Solar PV panels – or solar photovoltaic – harness the sun’s energy to convert into electricity. Unlike outdated solar solutions, PV panels don’t need direct sunlight – they can harness energy on a cloudy day.
The amount of electricity produced by your solar solution will depend on your roof orientation, how much energy is required to run your business.
For any surplus electricity generated by your panels – effectively, more electricity than required – you can sell back to the grid. Your energy provider will pay up to 5.16p per kWh, on a quarterly or annual basis.

Why Install A Solar PV Solution?
As the sun is a renewable energy source, your electricity rates will be reduced. You will also receive benefits from Government incentives, such as the Smart Export Guarantee where you can sell your surplus energy back to the grid. This way, you can make a small income from your Solar PV panels.
The carbon output from your business will be significantly reduced, as solar energy doesn’t produce harmful pollutants.
You’ll also have the option to expand your renewable energy system further, by installing an Air Source Heat Pump or Battery Storage. These options will further reduce your energy bills, lower your carbon footprint, and remove you from the grid further. Energy Buzz Limited work in conjunction with some of the leading installations company for Solar PV. If you are interested in a quote, please get in touch.

EV Charging

Electric vehicle Charging Points for your business.

Is your business future proofing by responding to the rapidly growing demand for EV Charging points?

One in every twelve new cars purchased in the UK is an electric vehicle making these vehicles an increasingly attractive option for motorists.

EV car sales increased by 76.3% in 2021, and there are an estimated 400,000 electric cars (EVs) on the road in the UK and over 750,000 plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) as of January 2022. This is the latest sign of the growing maturity of the EV market and coincides with the news there are now more EV charging locations in the country (more than 9,000) than there are filling stations. Car makers are set to bring dozens of new pure electric and hybrid models on to the market over the next few years, providing a further boost to the market, which is expected to see 13 million EV on UK roads by 2030.

EV sales are taking off in the UK, and with a government grant of up to £350 per ChargePoint available to help you install workplace charging – up to £14,000 in total – now’s the time to prepare for our EV future.

Your employees and visitors will love the convenience of charging their EV’s on your premises. And by helping your workforce switch to EVs, your business can cut carbon and show customers and stakeholders you’re pursuing your sustainability goals.

Attracting new customers, earning brand loyalty, and increasing time (and money) spent at your location are all excellent examples of how EV charging can drive profitability. But the most obvious way EV charging can boost profits is the revenue earned from the stations themselves. Depending on the business model you choose, you can generate additional income by setting charging fees for charging sessions.
