What energy solution would work best for your business depends on a wide range of factors. An energy consultancy service could help you look into this.

Economic benefits of renewable energy

Along with the vital importance switching to renewable energy has in cutting our emissions and protecting the planet, there are also business benefits.

Feed-in tariffs

By generating your own power, you could benefit from the Government’s Feed-in Tariff. Payable over 20 years, the tariff is paid to you for generating power, as well as selling any excess back into the grid through your energy provider.


Investing in renewables could help in becoming self-reliant. By producing your own energy, you avoid the risks of fluctuating pricing and potential breaks in supply that could harm your business.


In the coming years, investing in green infrastructure could be a necessity. As environmental impacts are constantly under review, standards may become stricter with time, meaning investing in renewables could help future-proof your assets and business.
