    Why should you consider going green?

    Going green has so many benefits – not just your local area but for the whole planet. Having green credentials is also great for your corporate social responsibility and is something you can shout about on your website. Switch to green business energy with Utility Bidder. Currently, the UK produces around 30% of its electricity from renewables, so we still have a way to go to meet government targets. However, we are producing more green energy than ever before and the percentage of people who are in favour of using renewable energy in the UK rose to 85% in 2018, as reported by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

    Green business energy

    Here in the UK, the government has set an ambitious target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% (compared to a 1990 baseline) by 2050.  It’s a pretty big ask, but by making significant changes, individuals and businesses can all play their part in making it happen.

    Businesses use far more energy than individual households. Just imagine what could happen if your business joined thousands or even millions of others worldwide in switching to renewably sourced energy? Combined with improvements to energy efficiency, this could make a big difference.

    What is Renewable business energy?

    Renewable energy does just what it says on the tin. Unlike fossil fuels, these are energy supplies that won’t run out because they are renewable. Better still, this kind of energy production doesn’t harm the environment.

    But where does renewable power come from, and how is it created? Well, it includes energy sources derived from solar panels, wind turbines, hydropower and biomass energy. Individuals and organisations can also generate their own green energy, using feed-in tariff incentives to make money by selling power back to the grid.

    Your guide to renewable energy - Green Electricity

    Electricity, which probably makes up the largest portion of your utility bill, is derived from the use of fossil fuels. These are non-renewable sources of energy. Once they are gone, they are gone – and the earth only has a limited supply. There are various estimates as to when we will have used up all supplies of fossil fuels, but many agree around the year 2060 isn’t too far off the mark.

    This means we have a limited amount of time to make the switch to 100% renewable electricity. Low or no-carbon electricity can be generated by solar or wind power, or by biomass or nuclear plants.

    Utility Bidder can help you to seek out the best green electricity tariffs for your needs, at exclusive prices you won’t find anywhere else.

    Green Gas

    When you start your search for green business energy, you’re likely to come across ‘green gas’ options. Energy suppliers offer tariffs with power supplied from green gas, also known as biomethane.

    This kind of gas can be produced from numerous sources. It is essentially derived from the processing of organic waste such as food, animal, food processing waste and so on.  Essentially, biomethane removes CO₂ and so reduces greenhouse emissions.

    By switching to 100% green business gas, you’ll play your part in fighting back against global warming. If you’re committed to a sustainable energy plan in the long-term, Utility Bidder is by your side.

    So what’s the problem with fossil fuels?

    As well as being a finite supply of energy, fossil fuels also produce CO₂. This has been produced in such large amounts, there is now an invisible layer around the earth – a layer that causes heat to be trapped inside the planet’s atmosphere. This is what experts believe is causing global warming, also known as the ‘ greenhouse effect’. Global warming is responsible for polar ice caps melting and sea levels rising, as well as extreme weather conditions.

    Most countries around the world agree that drastic action is needed on global warming. But you can also make a change on an individual level by finding ways to reduce personal and business CO₂ emissions. This means switching away from fossil fuels and moving towards renewable energy sources.

    Compare Business Gas & Electricity Prices

    No two businesses are the same, so it’s impossible to give an exact figure – factors such as your location, sector and tariff, as well as consumption, will all have an impact.

    However, we’ve put together the chart below detailing how much gas and electricity businesses of a similar size to yours use annually, the average kWh unit price for gas and electricity and the average standing charges to give you a rough idea.

    Average electricity kWh Prices by business size

    Business size Annual usage Unit price (per kWh) Daily standing charge (pence) Annual cost
    Micro business 5,000 to 15,000 kWH 26.6p 64.6p £2,833 (based on annual usage of 10,000 kWh)
    Small business 15,000 to 25,000 kWh 25.6p 83.0p £5,302 (based on annual usage of 20,000 kWh)
    Medium business 25,000 to 55,000 kWh 26.1p 65.5p £10,637 (based on annual usage of 40,000 kWh)
    Large business More than 55,000 kWh 26.4p 68.5p £14,548 (based on annual usage of 55,000 kWh)

      Frequently asked questions

      Green energy is produced by sunlight, wind and even plants which makes it a completely renewable energy source. Green business energy is now available to business energy customers.

      Nowadays, businesses are becoming more green as we are aiming to reach net zero by 2050. Businesses may choose one the doesn’t use fracking which is a way of extracting natural gas bus it can be extremely damaging to the environment.

      There are many ways businesses can become more “green”. These include small changes such as going paperless and becoming as energy efficient as possible.

      It is important that businesses are aware of the impact their energy usage has on the environment. If you want to compare green business energy prices, get in touch with us today.

      There are many ways your business can generate its own energy. Solar panels for example are nothing new, the ancient Greeks built their towns to face the sun so that their homes would be heated during cooler months and now, solar photovoltaic panels are essentially doing the same thing. The sun is a free natural resource that even here in the UK we can take advantage of as solar panels still generate electricity even on a cloudy day. Energy Saving Trust explain how the panels work and provide a solar energy calculator to help you see the benefits of installing solar. Solar energy is already quite inexpensive but it’s predicted that it will become the cheapest energy source in the whole world in the next decade.

      You can also generate business energy from the wind. A wind turbine is either considered a blot on the landscape or a thing of beauty, but love them or loathe them they are providing a significant amount of energy. The large blades catch the wind and as they move they drive a turbine to generate electricity.

      You can actually have your own small wind turbine erected in a suitably exposed position on your business premises (you can even have a smaller one mounted on the roof) and the cost will depend on size and of course, how much money it saves your business in the long term. If this something that interests you, speak to your local authority and ask about grants that may be available.

      A new government scheme in the UK means that any business throughout the U.K. that has already installed wind turbines, anaerobic digestion plants, solar panels or any other form of renewable energy generation can benefit significantly should they have enough capacity to sell to the grid. See more about exporting to the grid here.

      If you want your businesses gas and electricity to come from renewable energy then you may find yourself wondering where to start in finding the best supplier for your business needs. That’s where Utility Bidder comes in. We can work with your business to find a utility provider that complements your own ethical credentials and gives you energy at the best competitive price.

      We will shop around on your behalf and as well as talking to major energy providers we will also engage with smaller, niche energy providers who may be able to offer your business a better price for its gas and electricity supplies.

      Currently, energy tariffs from renewable energy firms can be slightly more expensive than with a major provider, but only slightly and we are confident that as more businesses go green and work with these specialist companies, prices will go down.

      And remember, using a small green energy supplier will not mean any other changes to the way your energy is provided – your business certainly won’t notice a difference in supply. If you think you would like to find out more about specialist green energy providers but don’t have the time – let our experts at Utility Bidder do all the hard work for you. We’d be happy to shop the market to find your ethical partner.

      The climate change crisis is at the forefront of most people’s minds, including business owners and leaders. To reduce our impact on the environment, the UK government has introduced several environmental tax and relief schemes to encourage small, medium and large businesses to operate in a more environmentally conscious manner.

      The Climate Change Levy, along with the net zero carbon emissions scheme, are methods of encouraging businesses to improve their environmental footprint. But what exactly is the Climate Change Levy and how does it affect your business?

      In our guide, we answer your questions and offer some expert tips on how to reduce your carbon emissions to save money on your business energy and help the environment.

      Some of us want to do it, most of us know we should be doing it, but still very few of us actually have done it: changed to a green energy contract. The main obstacle to business uptake is the long-held belief that green energy is more expensive, but the margins have reduced and there are a number of factors that specifically and directly benefit those businesses that do consider moving to a renewable business energy cost.

      Still not convinced that renewable business energy is the way forward? You could be missing out on countless benefits for your company, including:

      • Reducing your company’s carbon footprint
      • Meeting environmental and corporate social responsibility targets
      • Boosting to your public image
      • Improving your company’s marketability
      • Facilitating the chance to save money – as fossil fuels run out, energy prices could skyrocket.

      You should also consider that government deadlines for carbon emissions are rapidly approaching. Businesses will face more pressure to make the switch to renewable sources of energy.

      Wouldn’t you prefer to lead the way and be seen as a pioneer in green energy adoption in your sector? Green energy will hopefully soon be mainstream, but you could be the first to send a real message to your customers and stakeholders. The boost to your public image, corporate social responsibility and your green credentials could be priceless.

      The great news for businesses considering going green is that the choice of renewable tariffs and providers is increasing all the time. More choice and more competition among suppliers should make renewable energy more affordable.

      Go green with Utility Bidder and our experts will be happy to guide you through your options. We’ll do the hard work of scouring the market, all to find the best possible solution for your needs.

      If your business is keen to buy green energy, Utility Bidder is the perfect choice to make it happen.

      Not everyone realises this, but many of the mainstream business energy suppliers already have at least one ‘green energy’ tariff.  For example, E.ON offers a fixed one year tariff purchased from 100% renewable electricity and green gas. It also offers to match 100% of your estimated annual electricity use with UK-sourced Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin (REGO) certificates.

      However, there are also around a dozen energy companies that specialise in green energy– and the choice is growing every day.

      We know it can be complicated and time-consuming to get to grips with green energy. Not all business owners have time to search the market for the best rates, research the technologies and find the best fit for their business.

      This is where Utility Bidder comes in. We have a team of specialist consultants in renewable energy on hand to help. We enjoy premier status with many of the UK’s leading energy suppliers, including a selection of green energy specialists. Taking advantage of this close working relationship, we have instant access to exclusive rates and prices. This means you can access unbeatable rates as well as taking positive action on sustainability.

      Our green energy experts don’t just save your money on your energy bills. We’ll also provide reliable, helpful advice on good energy solutions to meet your business needs. We’ll check your energy bills and meter readings, tailoring our recommendations to suit you. We’re unbiased and trusted by our customers, so this is advice you can count on.

      If a switch to a green energy supplier makes sense for your business, we’ll handle the entire process for you, from start to finish. This means no hassle, no negotiation between different suppliers and only one point of contact. You’ll get award-winning customer service and a new energy solution that really works.

      With our help, your switch will be smooth, fast and involve as little disruption to your business as possible.

      Environmental issues have become a hot topic in recent years, and for good reason. Although many people are now choosing to make more environmentally friendly decisions when it comes to their consumer habits, businesses have an even larger responsibility. This is particularly true for those in industries with high levels of energy consumption. There are many things that you can do as a business to reduce your energy consumption and promote environmentally responsible practices in the workplace.
