“Honestly signing up with POWERX was a decision to primarily reduce our carbon emissions. As a global company we have certain targets to meet in terms of environmental sustainability and POWERX provided the offering to help us meet these targets. We are now receiving Renewable Energy certificates for power procured and by buying renewable power we are making significant contributions to meeting our global targets.”
“By signing up with POWERX, my business has realized notable electricity cost savings and a diversity of supply. Furthermore, purchasing renewable energy, my business has significantly reduced its GHG (Greenhouse gas emissions). With no capital cost and minimal administrative changes, I would highly recommend signing up with this energy supplier.”
“As a franchisor keeping operating costs is key for me especially in our tough trading environment. My main motivation for signing with POWERX was to save on the electricity I consume. The discount offer has created more cash flow for me and enabled me to invest into other areas of the business creating a better trade experience for my customers.”
