Derry manufacturing firm signs up to renewable energy

July 28

Sportswear manufacturer A.E. McCandless, based in Londonderry has become the latest business to highlight its dedication to reducing carbon output, by signing up to a new renewable energy deal from leading energy supplier, Energia.

With an increasing number of businesses trying to cut their carbon footprint, Energia developed an affordable green energy package, enabling small businesses to access renewable electricity and at a lower price.   

Richard McCandless, Managing Director of A.E. McCandless said, “The switch to renewable energy was very straightforward and the new tariff from Energia has made it financially viable for us to use green energy. Not only have we reduced our electricity costs but our carbon footprint as well, which is also important to remain competitive in contractual negotiations.”
Spokesman at Energia, Michael Nugent reinforced Energia’s commitment to making green energy available to smaller businesses, “With savings of up to 15% on electricity costs, Energia’s new green tariff is opening the renewable energy market to smaller organisations, who previously believed the cost of green energy was too expensive.”  

Mr Nugent continues, “We have been able to reduce business energy costs sometimes by up to 15% and with over 45,000 business customers throughout Ireland we have a good track record.  Helping businesses remain competitive by demonstrating their green credentials is important now as many customers dictate this in their contractual terms.”
