The benefits of clean energy technology

At Q-Energy we keep a close eye on the electrical sector to ensure we can provide the best services to our clients all across Staffordshire. We stay up to date with technological developments to ensure we can provide installation services, repairs, and maintenance too. One area we have a lot of experience with is clean energy technology such as solar panels.

Every company, from all manner of sectors, is looking for the best solution when it comes to energy efficiency. With clean energy technologies such as solar panels on the rise, more and more companies are adopting them.

One company in particular has recognised the potential of these technologies and has managed to cut costs by 75% following a £550,000 investment. Solar panels, wind turbines and LED lighting were among the components that have been utilised. The core of the investment was the installation of 850 solar panels across several branches. On top of this electric vehicles were also invested in. The company now generates roughly half of the energy it consumed and has managed to save approximately £10,000 on electricity bills.

There are other massive benefits to using clean or renewable energy sources aside from a company saving some money. Human activity is overloading our atmosphere with emissions, leading to global warming and damage to all kinds of habitats. Electricity production counts for a lot of these emissions as many of the facilities utilise coal or natural gas power.

In contrast, most renewable energy sources produce little to no global warming emissions. Data collected and released by the International Panel on Climate Change, life-cycle global warming emissions associated with renewable energy are minimal. Compared with natural gas which produces between 0.6 to 2 pounds of carbon dioxide and coal which emits between 1.4 and 3.6 pounds, wind emits only 0.02 to 0.04, solar energy emits 0.07 to 0.2, geothermal emits between 0.1 and 0.2 and hydroelectric emits between 0.1 to 0.5 pounds.

At Q-Energy our electricians can offer an array of services for clients exploring the opportunities that clean energy offers. They have extensive experience with solar panels and can also offer voltage reduction technology that can cut your energy consumption.
