We continue our drive towards our ambitious sustainability target of 40% less greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 (Scope 1 & 2), with the implementation of a hybrid generator, the Hussh Pod, provided Power Saving Solutions.
For the first time on one of our projects, we are utilising a hybrid generator to power our offices and welfare units, a solution which reduces fuel consumption and noise pollution.
Big results, little work
By switching from the traditional fully-diesel generator to the Hussh Pod hybrid generator to power our facilities overnight, we’ve cut our fuel consumption in half, saving approximately 300 litres of fuel and preventing 0.75 tonnes CO2e emissions each week… and that’s all while we’re sleeping!
This smart switch is reducing our carbon footprint and overhead costs, along with offering zero noise pollution and a continuous supply of power, which is bringing huge benefits to the health of our clients, local communities and the planet.
The Hussh Pod also prevents 11kg of NOx (Nitrogen oxides) from being released into the atmosphere each week. NOx has direct effects on human health including breathing problems, headaches, chronically reduced lung function, eye irritation, loss of appetite and corroded teeth. NOx also affects humans and animals indirectly through damaging the precious ecosystems we all rely on for food, water and habitation.
Electric doesn’t always mean more expensive
More environmentally-friendly alternatives like this hybrid generator dispel the myth that electric means higher costs – in reality, we’re making significant cost savings by using the Hussh Pod instead of the traditional fuel-heavy generator, especially with recent hikes in fuel prices.
