In today’s modern world it is imperative we are all doing our bit to reduce our carbon footprint. As a business, we are making a conscious effort to be more environmentally sustainable and do our bit to help the planet.
With this in mind, we have recently changed energy provider at our office and showroom in Handsworth, Sheffield. As part of our sustainability agenda here at Global Windows, we were keen to get comparative views of the market in order to see what renewable tariffs were available, and how they compared to the prices received from our broker. After conducting our research we decided to make the switch to United Gas & Power (UGP).
Why did we switch to UGP?
UGP are a business energy supplier based in Yorkshire that truly put customer service at the heart of their organisation. Here’s a word from our Managing Director, Billy Hawes, on why we made the switch;
“We had worked with the same broker for a few years and wanted to make sure that we were benefitting from using them – we also wanted to see what renewable tariffs were out there. We spoke to a number of suppliers directly, and what impressed us about UGP was the fact that they offered the most competitive pricing AND on a renewable tariff. This is something we’d not been able to find previously so it was impossible to turn down!”
We assessed our energy bills with our existing supplier in order to develop an accurate picture of historical usage. A quotation was generated offering UGP’s 100% renewable power tariff, at a fixed rate for a three year term. This offered our business long term predictable and stable costs.
Global Windows helping the environment with UGP
By switching to renewable power with UGP we have reduced our annual carbon emissions by 15.2 tonnes; the equivalent of planting 7,740 trees! Here’s a final thought from Managing Director, Billy Hawes;
“As a market leading supplier of windows, we try to be as progressive and forward thinking as possible. Sustainability is becoming more essential in the current climate to us and to our customers. While cost will always be a key factor when making decisions as a business owner, I was personally really interested to hear the impact that moving to a renewable supplier would have on the environment; it was extraordinary. It’s the first time in 15 years of doing this that I was able to move to a renewable supplier and save money, I couldn’t be happier! My UGP Account Manager dealt with the full transfer and it’s all gone to plan. We just need to frame our renewable certificate now!”
