The team behind Northern Ireland’s only 100 per cent green energy supplier for business, 3T Power, has announced a partnership with conveyor belt manufacturer Smiley Monroe.
This partnership has resulted in the ‘greening’ of the organisation’s Northern Ireland electricity supply.
The coming together of two businesses is helping Smiley Monroe’s team to implement a clean energy transition which includes its 55,000 sq ft manufacturing facilities and administrative offices.
This has also resulted in Smiley Monroe’s full Northern Ireland operation being powered purely by renewable energy generated by wind turbines across Northern Ireland.
The expected annual CO2 reduction for this global manufacturer is expected to be around 270,000kg, equal to the weight of over 55 African elephants, in carbon offset.
The partnership will also ensure long-term savings through the confirmation of a low-cost, secure energy tariff.
Thomas Kelso, Director of Tyrone-based 3T Power, said: “We are proud to acknowledge the efforts Smiley Monroe has taken to support their local economy and environment by switching to wind electricity supplied by 3T Power.
“We are the only electricity supply company in Northern Ireland dedicated to providing local businesses with 100 per cent renewable electricity generated locally.”
Tim Monroe, Marketing Director, Smiley Monroe, added: “Our business is part of a global supply chain, so we’re delighted to support local innovation.
“We’re very aware of the impact of global warming and the need for Smiley Monroe to help lead the way to a greener future by doing everything we can to minimise our carbon footprint.”
Smiley Monroe has operations in India and the USA and now exports to more than 60 countries worldwide, serving 10 equipment sectors – ranging from quarrying, recycling and waste management to port material handling, environmental and road construction.
