A large number of business electricity users may be looking to improve their environmental credentials by switching to a renewable energy source, but many are confused as to how to do this.
This is according to commercial energy supplier Opus Energy, which found nearly three-quarters of firms on a standard electricity tariff would be keen to switch to a green deal, but may face barriers.
Costs were cited as an issue by 47 per cent of these, while 18 per cent claimed the process is too complex.
Managing director of Opus Energy Charlie Crossley Cooke explained firms are already paying for green energy through subsidies that are added to their bills, which make up around ten per cent of the cost.
It was recently stated by the government that green initiatives could add another 20 per cent to business energy costs by 2020.
The executive said: "There needs to be more transparency for small businesses around the contribution they are already making to renewables - and perhaps then there'll be greater take up."
