Businesses located within commercial property are looking to make savings from installing new green technology.
According to British Eco Energy, firms naturally become interested as a means of cutting costs and often go ahead once they have seen their competitors install equipment.
Managing director Andrew Moore said the recession is forcing people to consider their costs more.
“They’re having to reduce their energy bills, and they seem to be addressing their carbon footprint issues and seem to be [putting forward the ‘green’ image] positively towards their customers.”
Wind power is proving popular, he noted. This he attributed to the poor weather recently and UK’s climate.
Other firms are quick to follow suit, he noted competitors “are seeing the wind turbine going up on their sites and feel: ‘we need to keep up with our competitors and we should have one as well'”.
The Department for Business Enterprise and Regulatory Reform has found renewable energy accounted for just 4.9 per cent of UK electricity sales in 2006.
