Bytes Software Services commit to climate action with switch to renewable energy

Tuesday 16th February 2021

We are delighted to announce our two-year contract with Haven Power, who will supply 100% renewable energy for Bytes Head Office. This major milestone marks another step towards our goal of carbon neutrality and demonstrates our commitment to climate action.

Haven Power (a subsidiary of Drax Group) provide renewable energy for UK businesses using a blend of wind, hydropower, bioenergy and photovoltaic power. It is estimated that our contract with them will deliver a highly significant carbon emission saving of 110 tonnes over two years.

Bytes aim to choose suppliers that share our beliefs. It is of vital importance to us that the organisations we work with have sustainability goals within their Corporate Social Responsibility policies. Haven Power is one such supplier and we are immensely proud to be working with them.

Neil Murphy, CEO at Bytes, commented:

"We chose Haven Power for several reasons, the foremost being that they provide power from renewable sources. The electricity that we now use is 100% renewable and this is in-line with our targets and aspirations for Corporate Social Responsibility.

The other reason we chose Haven Power was because their tariff best suited our needs. We are on their 'Complete' tariff which fixes our energy costs for the duration of the contract. This gives us certainty over our energy spend, which is a really important factor for us.

We are determined to do everything we can to ensure that Bytes has a positive impact on the environment and our local communities. Our ambitions have dovetailed in this respect. As a well-established supplier in the market, I am confident that Haven Power is the supplier that best meets our requirements, both now and in the future."

Rob Milloy, Sales & Service Director, Drax Customers (Opus Energy and Haven Power), commented:

"We are very happy to be working with Bytes Software Services and to provide them with 100% renewable electricity. Helping our customers to meet their sustainability targets and to understand their energy are two of the most important things for us as an energy supplier.

As part of Drax, Haven Power is committed to delivering a lower-cost, zero carbon energy future. By helping our customers to understand and control their energy and, through our innovative tariffs and products, we are helping businesses across the country to reduce their impact on our environment.

We work closely with all our customers and third-party intermediaries to ensure the highest level of service is provided and we will continue to deliver innovative products and support as our customers' requirements change and our working relationships develop."
