Some of the biggest businesses in the world have begun to turn to renewable energy sources to do their bit for the environment, this includes the likes of Google, Apple and IKEA, who are all investing money into wind energy. More and more businesses are reaping the benefits of renewable energy resources, and in this post we will explore the benefits of using renewable energy to power up your business.
If you are using oil or natural gas to source the power in your building, you can expect extortionate and consistently rising bills every month. It is not rocket science to understand that as these resources become more and more unavailable, the price will increase. Solar energy offers consistently lower bills as the resources it uses are renewable, hence there is no decline in availability. Solar panels are a worthy investment, harvesting the sun light to power up your business is an intelligent business move that will save you thousands of pounds in the long run.
ATTRACTS CLIENTS AND CUSTOMERS
They say good guys finish last, but when it comes to using renewable energy resources and making the considerate choice to help the environment is extremely attractive to customers and clients. It reflects well on your business, and screams innovative. Going green proves to your audience that you are considerate and conscious to issues that need to be tackled, which reflects in a way that shows customers that you have their best interests at heart. It could be the difference and a great USP against your competitors.
HUGE RETURN ON INVESTMENT
Although it may seem like an expensive investment initially, any well run business will be more conscious and concerned about the ROI (return on investment) involved in the purchase. The money saved on energy bills will be huge and you could see yourself having several thousands pounds more profit over the year thanks to the reduction in paying out to energy companies.
GOOD FOR MARKETING
Investing in renewable energy source means that you can improve your company’s marketability with a new generation of consumers who are being exposed to more awareness of the effects on global warming and hence, more environmentally conscious. Not only is it a moral choice for your business, it will be a great way to market your business with a glistening halo that will be attractive to customers and clients.
REDUCES YOUR BUSINESSES CARBON FOOTPRINT
It is becoming obligatory applied that businesses need to take more responsibility in reducing their non renewable energy consumptions and pollution. Reducing your carbon footprint is important not only for the environment, but to comply with the government regulations - Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme.
