Renewable energy for businesses is fast becoming a hot topic. Gone are the days when businesses would sign up to any brown electricity tariff and forget about it. The combined effects of tightened budgets, environmental concerns and government legislation have made British firms look more closely at their electricity supply. More sensibly priced quotes and increased choice have made renewable energy for businesses a viable option.
Why should a business choose renewable energy?
UK companies are responsible for around 15% of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, which is nearly equal to the domestic market. Green-collar firms, and green-minded firms, have been adopting renewable energy for businesses for some time in an effort to reduce their contribution to climate change and continue trading.
For those who already have a renewable energy for their business, it is a good time to look around for a better deal. Early market entrants charge a large premium for their renewable energy. LoCO2 Energy offers renewable energy for businesses at sensible prices to ensure we remain competitive.
For those looking for a green energy supply, switching to renewable energy for your business is an easy way to make a meaningful impact on the carbon emissions associated with your company’s activities before you think about more wholesale changes to your behaviour.
Renewable energy for businesses is also a way to engage with customers who appreciate firm’s engaging with this aspect of corporate social responsibility.
Government legislation means it is now no longer the case that renewable energy for businesses is much more expensive than the traditional brown electricity option. The Climate Change Levy
, introduced in 2001, is collected from all businesses (except charities) which use more than 12,000 kWh per year and currently charged at 0.0509p/kWh.
Having renewable energy for your business exempts you from paying the Climate Change Levy.

LoCO2 Energy can provide two different options for our business customers:
A 100% renewable energy supply
Our renewable electricity could be sourced from a number of renewable technologies including wind, hydro and solar. We call these the replenishable renewable technologies. This electricity will never be sourced from fossil fuel power stations and will never incur a charge relating to CCL. This product is 100% renewable.
A low-carbon energy supply
Our low carbon electricity could be sourced from a number of renewable technologies including wind, hydro, biomass, landfill gas and from cleaner combined heat and gas power stations (CHP). This electricity could also be sourced in part from fossil fuel power stations and for this reason we are obliged to charge CCL.
