Derry promotions firm pushes green agenda

June 12

Londonderry-based promotions and printing firm Partridge Peartree is to run on green energy after becoming one of the North West’s first businesses to sign up to a new renewable electricity supply deal from Energia, the largest independent energy company on the island of Ireland.

Partridge Peartree business development manager Claire Higgins says the switch is saving her company up to  £150/mth on electricity bills.

“This is not only a good deal for us but by switching to Energia’s renewable energy tariff we are massively reducing our carbon footprint,” says Ms Higgins. “Both features are essential to any go-ahead company and we were glad to be able to sign up.”

“Green energy was previously the preserve of the wealthy because of its high cost, but now we can implement more green policies which make us more commercially competitive as our clients seek out ethically sound suppliers,” she says.
Energia says its new offer and this green tariff breaks through the perception that green energy is expensive. “We are opening up the green energy market to small businesses and have already secured more than 40,000 business customers throughout Ireland. These range from manufacturers to radio broadcasters and printing works to bakeries and each time we have been able to reduce their energy costs, sometimes by up to 15%,” says Michael Nugent.
