WHAT IS RENEWABLE ENERGY?

Renewable energy is a source of power that comes from clean and natural resources. This means that it does not harm the environment around it, nor will it ever run dry. It contains no nasty chemicals or toxic ingredients — it simply generates power. In other words, it does all the hard work for us.

When you think of energy, some not so green resources may come to mind, such as oil, coal, gas and nuclear power. Not only are these destructive to the earth, but they have a huge political history behind them. These industries are backed by governments and powerful businesses because they generate a lot of money. We’re talking about billions. Furthermore, a recent report suggests that governments are on track to producing 50% more fossil fuels by 2030.

We just cannot let that happen. For a long time, people have known about the devastating impact that dirty energy has on the environment. Offshore drilling affects sea life and risks oil spillage into our oceans; coal mining, although on the decline, still provides terrible conditions for workers and poisons the atmosphere and gas extraction can cause irreversible deforestation.

But thankfully there is a solution. Renewable energy. With so many different renewable energy types to choose from, it seems ludicrous that businesses, as well as our wider society, use these dangerous resources to fuel our day-to-day lives.

ARE BOTH BUSINESS ELECTRICITY AND BUSINESS GAS RENEWABLE?

Our business electricity services are 100% renewable. Gas is not a renewable energy. If your business needs gas supply, we neutralise the environmental impact of this by offsetting it through a CO2 offset scheme.
