We can confirm that the sale of our business to British Gas has now completed. British Gas will start writing to customers from week commencing 21st September inviting them to move across.
We will be here to continue supporting our customers and to make that journey as seamless as possible.
Every customer already enjoys 100% green Electricity* from us, but your business could save even more money and significantly reduce its carbon footprint by taking advantage of renewable energy technology.
Great! We can take on your energy supply and top you up with a little extra when you need it as well as pay you for the renewable electricity your business generates.
For our business energy customers, we can bring our expertise and existing renewable energy commercial relationships to bear on your business. Helping your business become greener faster.

We'll connect you with the our different industry partners who can help bring your project to life
There are lots of different ways your business could generate its own energy. Some of the most common are below but if you have another idea then let us know, we've got experience in every type of renewable energy generation technology and we'd love to help make your vision a reality.
Solar photovoltaic or Solar PV is probably what we all think about when we hear the words solar panels. They absorb sunlight and convert that energy directly into electricity.
Solar PV panels generate Direct current (DC) electric from the sunlight so an inverter changes the current from DC to Alternating current (AC) so you can use the electricity you generate in your business.
Like all renewable electricity generation, If you generate more than you use you can either store it in a battery or sell it back into the grid with a power purchase agreement with us.
We've all seen wind turbines dotted across the landscape and the ones you could use in your business work on the same very simple principle. The energy in the wind turns the propeller blades around a rotor, which spins a generator to create electricity.
Just like with Solar PV you can either use the electricity you generate from the wind in your own business, store it in a battery or sell it back to the grid through a power purchase agreement with us.
Solar thermal use panels, just like Solar PV but rather than generating electricity, they use the sun’s energy to heat water.
This hot water can be used to heat your hot water cylinder and is a perfect system if your business has a high demand for hot water.
If your solar thermal installation is either flat plate or evacuated tube then it should be eligible for the renewable heat incentive.
Combined heat and power (CHP) is an efficient process that captures and uses the heat generated as a by-product of electricity generation.
This heat can be used in your business to replace some or all of the heat normally created by a conventional boiler.
Your CHP should be sized to match the normal heat demand of your site during the warmer months to ensure maximum efficiency and a manageable electricity load.
If your CHP uses eligible renewables then the heat produced will be eligible for renewable heat incentive.
Ground source heat pumps work by burying pipes into the ground which are used to circulate a mixture of water and antifreeze. This is called a ground loop.
The heat is extracted from the surrounding ground, passed through a heat exchanger and into the heat pump.
Unlike an air source heat pump which has to deal with significant changes in air temperature during the year, the ground remains at a relatively constant temperature so performance is consistent.
Ground source heat pumps are eligible installations for the Renewable Heat Incentive.
Air Source Heat Pumps take heat from the outside air. They work in exactly the same way that a fridge removes heat to keep your food cool.
The heat is then concentrated to a higher temperature by a heat pump.
Air source heat pumps can be extremely efficient; for every one unit of electricity used, they produce three units of useful heat.
There are two types of air source heat pumps: Air to Water and Air to Air.
The air to water heat pumps can be used to heat your buildings as well as hot water but air to air heat pumps can only be used to heat buildings.
Air source heat pumps are eligible installations for the Renewable Heat Incentive.
We can provide your business with a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) so you can sell the renewable electricity you generate back to the grid. A revenue stream for you and more green electricity for everyone.
Every business pays a tax on the non-renewable energy it uses. By generating your own energy you could reduce or remove this cost from your business.
The renewable heat incentive is a quarterly payment made by the government for the heat your business generates from its eligible heating installation.

*Our green electricity tariffs are certified as being sourced from UK based wind and solar generators. For every Megawatt hour (MWh) of electricity purchased for our customers, we also purchase a Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin (REGO) certificate, which proves the electricity is certified as being sourced either directly from the renewable generators or through a green wholesale energy provider.
