Allstate and Electric Ireland renew energy deal
Electric Ireland has announced it's renewed a contract to power the Northern Ireland offices of IT giant Allstate using renewable energy.
The electricity company will be supplying 2.5 million electricity units - the equivalent of the energy needed to power 1,000 homes - to Allstate's three sites in Northern Ireland.
It has provided power to Allstate since 2011, which the US firm said had helped its efforts to reduce carbon emissions. It employs 2,200 people in Belfast, Londonderry and Strabane.
Electric Ireland business markets manager Tony Dunlea said: "Since our entry into the competitive electricity market 15 years ago we have steadily developed a wide range of product offerings to meet our customers' specific requirements and also a wide ranging renewable energy portfolio here in Northern Ireland.
"Our renewed partnership with Allstate NI is another example of our credentials and commitment to delivering the appropriate green energy product at competitive prices.
"We have structured this contract in a way which will enable Allstate NI to save time and resources and reduce energy usage with online consumption reporting which will help to implement efficiency initiatives for the company."
John Healy, managing director of Allstate NI, said: "At Allstate NI we are dedicated to minimising the impact our business has on the environment and we are reducing our carbon footprint by improving energy efficiency and positively engaging with staff across our three sites."
