Solar & Renewables:
Reduce your building’s operating costs while improving its efficiency; our energy consultants will guide you to best supplier for your meter type and consumption level.
Solar and Battery
There are many benefits to businesses that adopt solar energy, including cost reductions and decreasing the risk of reliance on the grid. But commercial adoption has been slow.
Green Energy Partners will help cut through the noise by presenting the best possible options for your business so you can make a well-informed and confident decision. We start by rationalising the system design and specifications to ensure all the photovoltaic (PV) system providers deliver quotes that can be reviewed on a like-for like basis.
Our service includes system design, specification and tender outcome reporting. We also provide our clients with monitoring and support for the system to ensure it is working correctly for the life of the system.
Battery Storage Procurement
Battery storage, which is meant for reserving energy for later use like during blackouts or during energy demand peaks, is becoming more affordable and it is especially cost-effective when used in tandem with a solar energy generation system.
Green Energy Partners can evaluate your current PV system and give advice on whether battery storage could be a useful addition to reduce peak energy charges and demand/capacity charges.
WHY SWITCH TO COMMERCIAL LED LIGHTING?
LED bulbs and diodes have an outstanding operational lifetime of up to 100.000 hours. This is equal to 11 years’ continuous use or 22 years of 50% operation. If you leave on the LED fixture for 8h per day it would take around 20 years before the bulb would need replacing.
LED is the most efficient form of illumination and lighting with an estimated 80% to 90% energy efficiency when compared to traditional lighting and conventional light bulbs.
The directional nature of LED lighting means light is emitted in specific directions, making them ideal for commercial premises that need to focus light in certain ways. This also reduces the need for reflectors and diffusers used to trap light.
LED lights are free of toxic chemicals. Most conventional fluorescent light bulbs contain a multitude of materials like mercury that are dangerous for the environment.
LED lights are resistant to shock, vibrations and external impacts which also makes them great for outdoor lighting. They are also super easy to install and you can easily connect up to 25 strings of LED’s end to end without overloading a wall socket.
OPERATIONAL IN EXTREMELY COLD OR HOT TEMPERATURES
No matter what sector you’re in LED lighting is the perfect choice as it is operational in both extremely hot and cold environments and is suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

EV Charging Points
Just like traditional fuel engine vehicles, the cost of running an electric vehicle varies depending on the model, make and specifics of the vehicle – it means there’s an option for everyone and this including buying an EV too.
The good news is electric vehicles are likely to cost you less over the course of ownership. Electricity costs much less than petrol or diesel and electric cars require less maintenance than an internal combustion engine (ICE).
In addition, there are various incentives offered such as government grants or schemes, Vehicle Excise Duty discounts or exemption and also exemption from Fuel Duty.
Cost of charging an electric car
Charging your electric car at home is the main charging option for most EV owners. It’s important to be on the best home energy tariff to keep this cost as low as possible, because the cost of charging will be included in your normal electricity bill.
How much charging costs will depend on the amount of charging you do, the type of charger you have and also how much you use public charging.
The cost of installing a charge point is around €1500 but with an SEAI grant, you could reduce the up front cost by up to €600. Note – you need to own a electric Vehicle before you can apply any grant.
Electricity tariff costs
Before you get an electric vehicle, you may want to think about how it will impact the cost of your home electricity bill. For instance, if you travel 8000 miles per year in your car, this might equate to around 2800 kWh of additional electricity on your yearly bill if 1 kWh equals 5.5 KMs. Therefore it pays to look for the right energy tariff.
For example, you might want to look at off-peaks prices, as many energy companies offer lower electricity prices at night when the demand on the grid is reduced and energy prices are cheaper. Another thing to consider is the number of off-peak hours available to charge your electric car. If for instance you own a Tesla Model S with a 100 kW battery, the charging time will be greater than a Renault Zoe with a 30 kW battery. Therefore, you might want to look for a tariff which offers the best off peak rates.
