We are committed to investing in renewable energy sources
Energia is fully committed to investing in renewable energy sources i.e. renewable wind energy. Substantial investment over the last number of years has resulted in 23% of Ireland’s wind power now being provided through Energia. This is via self-owned wind farms and from Power Purchase Agreements. Ireland’s wind energy has a number of key advantages over conventional means of electricity generation.
Advantages of wind energy for business
Wind energy creates very low emissions of 'greenhouse gases':
Using wind energy has little-to-no effect on the environment and it doesn’t have an ongoing effect on future life. It produces less carbon emissions and “greenhouse gases”. This is in contrast to conventional electricity which contributes negatively to global warming and climate change. Switching to this type of energy enables your business to lead a more sustainable practice.
Fuel supplies won't run out:
Unlike the use of fossil fuels, wind energy will never run out. By switching to green electricity
today, you won’t run the risk of electricity shortages or power outages in your office or business premises.
An indigenous energy option:
Wind energy can be harnessed from either onshore or offshore wind farms here in Ireland, so it doesn’t have to be imported. Having the ability to generate our own electricity allows us to have greater control over our own energy. Political instabilities such as wars or disputes can have a negative impact on the supply of energy which in turn affects the price we pay. Wind energy for your business means that prices won’t be as volatile, thus saving you money on electricity costs.
