A major shift towards renewable energy is essential in order to achieve and maintain sustainable energy production and microgeneration is likely to be at the heart of that shift. Microgeneration is the production of zero or low-carbon electricity and heat by individuals, businesses and communities to meet their own energy needs. Microgeneration technologies include small-scale wind turbines, hydroelectric plants, photovoltaic solar systems, ground source heat pumps, biodiesel, biogas and Micro Combined Heat and Power (MicroCHP) installations.
In addition to the benefit of lowering your energy bills, there are some incentives put in place by the government to entice businesses to undertake plans for installing microgeneration technology. These incentives are designed to give money back to those who generate their own energy, which means that you can earn money as well as save it. Utilising microgeneration technology is also a good way to meet your requirements for the Carbon Reduction Commitment if your business is affected by the scheme.
These schemes may change and new ones may be developed, but Nationwide Utilities will be able to advise you on which schemes are available to you and which ones will benefit your business the most.
As part of our renewable energy consultancy services, we at Nationwide Utilities can advise you on how your business can move forward with microgeneration and what options are available to your business. We are also happy to provide the installation of microgeneration systems once the right plan of action has been chosen.
