NAA News: The easy way for NAA members to switch to affordable renewable energy
NAA members are being encouraged to play their part in the fight against climate change in order to achieve Government ambitions to be net carbon neutral by 2050…
One simple way that businesses can support this is to switch to renewable power, and our energy procurement hub partner, Businesswise Solutions, is on a mission to empower this change, by bringing market access to renewable energy to mid-sized companies without a price premium for the privilege. The NAA has now launched the ‘Green Energy Basket’ which makes the switch to Green achievable and affordable.
“Previously, access to competitive renewable energy products has long been monopolised by some of the largest corporations, or only available to small and medium sized businesses at a premium” explains Businesswise Solutions’ Managing Director Frazer Durris.
“But we’re working together with the NAA to help embrace the switch to a 100% wind-based energy option that won’t cost companies the earth; but might just help save it.”
The company will harness its group buying power, combined with its use of intelligent data, to empower NAA businesses to collectively spearhead action against climate change.
Frazer added: “It has never been a more relevant time to purchase renewable energy rather than carbonised, unclean energy for your business.
“Consumers are demanding change and the economics behind purchasing renewable power are starting to make good business sense. Our renewable offering presents NAA businesses with a risk-free way to contribute towards the effort and embark on their carbon reduction journey.”
Northern Automotive Alliance Chief Executive, Rowan Egan, said: “Our members are under pressure to meet the Government’s environmental targets, but demands on budgets and time in today’s challenging automotive sector often see energy fall to the bottom of the to-do list. To know that renewable energy is now a cost-effective option will no doubt prove a game changer.”
The initial, short-term target is to pool a total of 100GWh annual energy consumption and shift this from brown to renewable energy, representing a reduction of 16 kilo tonnes of CO2; that’s equivalent to greenhouse gasses emitted from 3,000 passenger vehicles driven for one year.
“If we can achieve this, it’s a great start to making a significant contribution towards the national carbon targets” Frazer concluded.
