Haven Power helps local climbing centre reach its sustainability targets
28th October 2019
Haven Power has helped an Ipswich climbing centre to meet its sustainability goals by supplying renewable energy to the new leisure complex on Ransomes Europark.
Clip ‘n Climb Ipswich is an independent climbing centre which opened in July 2019 with the purpose of providing fun and inclusive climbing for the local community. The business has strong social and environmental goals in terms of promoting healthy living and using resources from sustainable sources.
Josh Davey, director at Clip ‘n Climb said: “Our ethos is all about working with local suppliers, so we were very interested in talking with our near-neighbours Haven Power, especially when we understood that they only supply renewable electricity.”
He added: “Haven Power supports our values of becoming more sustainable, reducing our impact on the environment and setting a good example to the local community. “They made sure that we were on the most efficient energy contract and even helped us with our feed-in-tariff application for exporting our own solar power back to the Grid when we have excess supply.
Mark Anderson, Sales Director, Drax Customers said: “Haven Power plays a crucial role in supporting businesses like Clip ‘n Climb to achieve their sustainability goals, whether that’s advising them about new energy solutions or helping with Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives.”
Haven Power, part of Drax Group, is committed to supporting businesses to be more sustainable in the way they use their energy. It is in discussion with Clip ‘n Climb about further sustainable solutions, such as battery storage and customer electric vehicle charge points.
