Opus Energy has unveiled a new clean electricity tariff targeted at the small and medium-sized (SME) business market.
The Opus Advance deal provides companies with power sourced from a mix of UK and European renewable generators, including the Drax Power Station in North Yorkshire, which uses sustainable biomass as a feedstock.
More than 2,300 independent UK-based renewable generators, such as farms, schools and community projects where solar panels and wind turbines are used to produce electricity, will also contribute energy to customers.
For larger businesses, Opus Advance Plus will allow companies to source their electricity exclusively from Opus Energy’s UK-based renewable electricity portfolio, which is made up of solar, wind and hydro.
Paul Sheffield, Managing Director of Drax’s customer businesses, including Opus Energy, said: “The climate crisis is the greatest challenge the world faces and we want to make it easier for businesses to reduce emissions to help achieve the UK’s net zero carbon targets.
“Our new Opus Advance tariff will give businesses more control over their carbon emissions, improving their sustainability.”
