Dong Energy is offering the opportunity to purchase renewable electricity at a subsidised rate by absorbing the premiums of ‘green’ energy prices over conventional ‘brown’, this is to encourage firms to switch to using electricity generated from renewable resources.
The company is also offering to cover switching costs so there is no commercial disadvantage to using electricity from sustainable sources. The move comes after the Government decided to scrap climate change levy exemption for companies buying electricity from renewable sources.
Managing Director of DONG Energy Sales, Jeff Whittingham, said: “We are taking this bold step because we believe that all businesses should have access to renewable electricity supply without paying a premium. If we are to embrace a truly sustainable energy future, we will need to take an integrated and forward-thinking approach to energy. One part of this is putting renewable electricity on an equal footing with traditional ‘brown energy’ sources.“
