Turn-key energy solutions for businesses

From our zero-carbon head office based outside of Bristol, we utilise our unparalleled 23 years’ experience to work with our clients, audit their current situation and identify the best suited technologies to meet their specific needs.

From solar panels, solar battery storage and solar carports to commercial LED lighting, heat pumps and electric vehicle charge-points – we will ensure you receive the best advice possible.

Solar panels for business

Due to the particularly high returns that solar (PV) panels deliver, this technology is one of the most popular sustainable solutions to date. Solar panels can save your business considerable money by generating free, clean electricity to use on site – lowering your electricity bills by up to 100% - saving you thousands of pounds each year. A typical payback period for a solar panel system is less than 7 years.

 

Solar battery storage for business

Capitalise on the energy savings your solar panels produce - store the excess electricity for use when your business needs it most or when your variable rate of electricity is at its peak. By integrating an on-site solar battery storage solution with solar panels, your business can leverage additional energy security benefits, becoming less reliant on the National Grid and the volatile energy market. Having energy stored on-site can also protect your business from power cuts, allowing you to remain operational and ahead of your competitors.

 

Solar carports for business

From a dual parking space to an entire commercial carpark; a solar carport makes a real statement towards sustainability and not only offers an increased space for on-site energy generation but an opportunity to charge electric vehicles (EVs). Solar carports allow businesses to transform low grade parking spaces, generate an income, visibly promote their ‘green’ credentials and provide staff and visitors with a shelter from the elements.

 

LED lighting for business 

Switching to commercial LED lighting offers a number of financial, environmental and health benefits to staff and businesses. One of the key benefits of installing LED lighting is the short payback period. Switching to LEDs can save your business up to 80% on annual lighting costs alone. Not only will switching to energy saving lighting enable your business to save money but also create a more comfortable and productive working environment for your staff. LEDs are also more environmentally friendly, free from toxic chemicals and dangerous materials. 

 

Heat pumps for business 

Heating commercial premises with a heat pump will significantly reduce heating costs and increase your organisation’s green credentials. A ground or air source heat pump can reduce the cost of space heating considerably due to the need for less energy to generate the same amount of heat. Heat pumps last much longer than traditional boilers and require less maintenance, generating further savings. The Government also offer a generous incentive via the non-domestic Renewable Heat Incentive, helping to create a very healthy ROI.
