3 Ways to make your business greener in 2022

Business hands holding plants

A new year has arrived and it’s a time for us to reflect on what we want to do differently or what we want to do more of this year. One big topic of discussion throughout 2021 was green energy and eco-friendly solutions, especially with the much-anticipated COP26 taking place at the end of last year, so we’re certain there will be much more to come in 2022!

So, if going green is one of your business’s New Year’s resolutions and you’re wondering where to start, look no further. We’re here to share with you three ways you can make your business greener and more profitable in 2022.

1. Solar PV – Harness the sun

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) arrays are one of the most popular, cost-effective green energy generation options for customers in the commercial and industrial sectors.

Not only is Solar PV relatively easy to install and maintain and lasts over 25 years (if you look after it!), but solar panels are a fantastic asset for commercial businesses – allowing you to start saving money by producing your own electricity rather than relying on grid-supplied power.

How does up to 20% returns on investment sound to you? Amazing, right? We thought so, too. This is why we offer a free survey of your site before any agreement is made to ensure your site is suitable for an installation and you’re 100% confident in your soon-to-be solar energy solution.


2. EV (Electrical Vehicle) Charging – Drive green

Electric vehicle charging points are becoming increasingly common, with sales of electric cars increasing by 76.3% in 2021 and an estimated 400,000 on the road in the UK. But where are we going to charge them?

One increasingly popular solution is to install EVC points in business car parks. Charging ports are not only extremely useful and essential to meeting the net-zero target by 2030, but your installation will also prepare your business for the inevitable extinction of petrol and diesel cars. Hey, you could even add ‘Charge Point Operator’ to your services—it’s a win-win!

The best part is, you don’t even have to worry about consulting the DNO prior to your installation; we’ll do that for you. In fact, we take care of the whole thing, so you don’t have to worry. For more information on our EV charging technologies, click here.


3. Solar Car Ports

Solar PV, for your car park! If your office or business site lacks suitable roof space for a solar energy installation, solar carports are a fantastic way to harness the power of the sun and – you guessed it – provide an additional stream of income for sites running a public car parking service by enhancing revenue from premium rates for covered spaces and letting space under the canopies to advertising media agencies.

Better yet, solar carports and EV charging go hand in hand (remember when we said the sales of electric vehicles were going up?).. so you could potentially generate your own energy while providing a service to your visitors and staff, meaning more income for you and your business.

If this is something you think could benefit your business, we can help you get started.


So there you have it; there are plenty of ways you can transform your business and generate additional income with green energy – however, great renewable power comes with great responsibility! If you decide to invest in one of the technologies we’ve listed above, you must look after that installation from the get-go. This is why we offer full maintenance and repair services if you choose Boston Renewables (and even if you don’t) on all our installations as well as those carried out by other developers.
