Renewable energy production is on the rise year on year, accounting for 31% of the UK’s total electricity generation in 2018.
In the UK, businesses are the largest consumers of energy and the major players in the Government’s targets to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050.
Many businesses aren’t aware of the benefits that renewable energy can bring to a company, with many having concerns it may be costly and affect their profits. However, this certainly isn’t the case… here are three reasons why your business should consider switching to renewable energy with Ecusol.
It’s nearly always cheaper
There are many misconceptions that renewables are an expensive source of energy, however rising demand for renewable power means it is now the cheapest form in many countries of the world. Renewable energy prices are continually declining, with the cost reaching a record low in 2018.
All of Ecusol customers have seen a dramatic decrease in their energy costs since switching to renewable power.
It’s the easiest way to reduce your carbon footprint
2019 has seen the highest levels of CO2 since humanity began and scientists have stated that the effects of climate change will be irreversible by 2030 if we don’t address the worryingly high carbon dioxide emission levels.
Being the largest consumers of energy in the UK, businesses who switch to renewable energy will immediately be able to reduce their carbon footprint and help contribute to achieving the UK’s climate change targets.
Many customers want to purchase from companies using renewable energy
Environmental awareness is increasing, and consumers are becoming more and more conscious of the negative effects that businesses can have on the environment.
Action Renewables say that
“Consumers have an increased expectation on suppliers of good and services across all sectors to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability, particularly in relation to renewable energy.”
Switching to renewable energy will allow your business to become more marketable by creating an attractive proposition to a new generation of clients and customers who have been raised more socially and environmentally conscious.
