Cosgriff Whitehouse Electrical Explore Benefits of Green Processes for Businesses

CosgriffElectrical contractors CWE Ltd have been working tirelessly to raise awareness of the importance of electrical maintenance and the benefits of investing in green processes for businesses.

CWE are passionate about electrics and want businesses and manufacturers to be obtaining the most that they can out of their building’s energy. Keeping premises properly maintained and using the greenest possible processes allows businesses to do this easily. 

Electrical maintenance involves ensuring that Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICRs) and PAT testing is carried out regularly (in the suggested time frames) this ensures that; business insurances are kept valid, safety of employees and the building’s fabric is achieved, there is no lost production (downtime due to faults or faulty equipment) and better production overall is achieved. If EICRs and PAT testing are not carried out, faults can go unidentified which can lead to massive repercussions such as, electrical fires and electric shocks to personnel. Insurances will also be invalid, which will mean no cover and therefore costs of repairs and compensations must come from your own pocket. 

Implementing green energy processes have huge benefits for business, helping to gain those all-important green credentials, which so many companies look for to do business, and even help you with your ISO9001 certification. The most important factor of implementing green energy processes into a business is that you will be saving energy and therefore saving the planet and saving money. Simple things like installing efficient lighting, LED and lighting control, implementing voltage optimisation and power factor correction on equipment, can cut running costs and lower energy bills by 30% resulting in massive annual savings. 

Current government focus means that there are various avenues of funding available for these processes. If you would like to know more, please visit
