As the push for sustainability grows stronger, electrical contractors are stepping up to assist businesses in their journey to reach net zero.
Net zero signifies a balance between the amount of energy consumed and the amount of renewable energy produced, ultimately leading to zero carbon emissions.
To aid businesses in reaching this target, we can offer a wide range of services, such as installing renewable energy sources, retrofitting existing buildings with energy-efficient lighting and appliances, and calculating energy consumption to pinpoint areas for improvement.
On top of this we can provide valuable insight on how to optimise renewable energy usage and assist businesses in creating strategies aimed at reducing their carbon footprint and improving sustainability.
Investing in solar panels can be a smart decision for businesses, as it leads to lower energy costs and a smaller carbon footprint in the long term. Our team has the expertise and experience to evaluate the energy requirements of a building or facility and determine the best type and size of solar panel system for the job.
We take into account important factors such as roof orientation and tilt, shading, and local weather patterns to ensure optimal energy production. We handle all aspects of the installation process, from securing necessary permits and approvals to installing the panels, inverter, and electrical wiring, ensuring the system is connected to the electrical grid and operating effectively to avoid electrical and safety hazards.
Solar panels have a long lifespan and require minimal maintenance, making them an economical and low-maintenance way to generate renewable energy. Additionally, many government programs offer incentives and tax credits for businesses that install solar panels, such as the LoCASE Grant, further reducing costs and maximising return on investment.
Switching to LED lighting is an efficient way for businesses to decrease energy consumption and save on energy bills. LED bulbs use significantly less energy compared to traditional incandescent bulbs and can last multiple times longer. This not only reduces energy usage but also decreases the need for frequent bulb replacements, saving time and money for businesses.
We have strong connections with leading lighting manufacturers, such as Ovia, Collingwood, Robus, Ansell, and Lutron (smart controls), to assess the lighting needs of a building or facility and determine the ideal type and number of LED bulbs.
LED lighting is available in a variety of colour temperatures, from warm white to cool white, allowing businesses to choose the light that best suits their needs. LED lighting also comes in different brightness levels, making it easy to customise lighting for various areas of a building or facility.
Besides reducing energy consumption, upgrading to LED lighting can also enhance the overall lighting quality in a building or facility. This creates a more comfortable and productive environment for employees and customers.
Installing electric vehicle (EV) charging stations is a proactive step towards becoming net zero and reducing a business’s carbon footprint. With the increasing popularity of EVs, having charging stations on-site can provide a valuable service to customers and employees who own EVs, making it more convenient for them to charge their vehicles. We have the expertise to assess the energy needs of a building or facility and determine the most suitable type and number of charging stations to install.
As we are OLEV approved car charger installers it enables us to offer the Workplace Charging scheme. This scheme allows us to claim a grant amount on your behalf of 75% of the total cost of your installation (which is maximised at £350 per socket and 40 sockets per single business).
Having charging stations on-site can also provide a competitive advantage for businesses, as it can attract customers and employees who are interested in reducing their carbon footprint. It can also help increase visibility and promote the business as environmentally conscious and forward-thinking.
Our comprehensive range of services offer businesses effective solutions to reduce their energy consumption, lower energy costs and minimise their carbon footprint.
From evaluating energy requirements, to installing and maintaining renewable energy sources, to providing charging solutions for electric vehicles, we are equipped to assist businesses in their journey towards net zero.
Our partnerships with leading manufacturers, combined with our expertise and experience, ensure that we provide the best possible solutions to our clients, helping them achieve a greener, more sustainable future.
