Google and GM are securing long term, low cost electricity by buying it from renewable generators

When big, bad US corporates start making moves to power their operations with renewable energy, you know that the commercial argument has been won. 

The FT reports how some of America’s biggest companies including Google and GM are securing long term, low cost electricity by buying it from renewable generators. They will, of course, use this to trumpet their green credentials by pointing to the reduction in carbon emissions, but the hard commercial fact is that they will be fixing their electricity costs at a low rate for years to come. Fourteen years in the case of GM.

The case for moving away from dependence on conventional, grid energy generated with hydrocarbons is now very much a financial one. We have helped companies all over the southern half of the UK generate and use their own electricity and enjoy long term certainty of the cost of that energy.

If you think that your business might be ready to make this move, we’re ready to talk.
