Energy on the menu at Mr Waffle

December 12

Mr Waffle, Galway's award-winning café and restaurant, is switching to competitive electricity provider Energia in a new 'green' energy deal.

The terms of the new deal will see Energia supply Mr Waffle’s Galway store with over 80,000 kilowatt hours of renewable-generated electricity over the coming 12 months.

Energia is among Ireland's leading providers of sustainable energy green with 409MW of operational renewable electricity capacity contracted within its energy portfolio, with a further 440MW of wind farm projects currently in development across Ireland.

Mr Waffle is the award-winning Galway business run by Kevin Nugent, winner of the JCI Galway Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2011. In business since December 2010, Mr Waffle serves a wide selection of hot food and beverages including sweet waffles and crepes, savory sandwiches and crepes and Fairtrade coffees and teas. Mr Waffle has won a number of awards for its hot beverages, including best barista and best latte art.

Kevin Nugent, Managing Director, Mr Waffle commented, “This new energy supply deal with Energia means Mr Waffle will be powered exclusively by renewable power. We are delighted to be able to make savings on our energy costs and at the same time make a commitment to reduce our carbon footprint by switching to “green” energy.”

John King, Key Account Manager, Energia commented, “Mr Waffle joins the growing number of Irish businesses who are switching to Energia and choosing our “green” energy. Whether it’s for conventional or renewable electricity or gas, Energia is the energy provider of choice for Irish business.”

“Energia has consistently been one of the largest investors in the renewable sector, having invested a significant €200 million in the last 2 years in over 100MW of wholly owned wind farm developments and supporting €1 billion of investment in 540MW of third party wind farms to date.”

Energia has a 28% market share of the Irish business electricity and gas market supplying the energy needs of over 65,000 business customers. In addition to renewable assets, the company also operates a 750MW gas fired power station in north Dublin.
