Eco-logical – the green products that make sense for your business!

In this upside down world it is difficult to think about going ahead with business as usual, but we are all trying our best to get through and offer the best service possible. Here, we look at some of the products and solutions wholesalers are providing to customers to help end users reduce their carbon footprint and save money at the same time.   

PEW spoke with two wholesalers, Rexel and multi-branch independent, LEW Electrical Distributors to get insight into their environmental strategy that offers green products that minimise the impact on the environment and the wallet of the end user! Keeping costs down is important now more than ever, and coupled with their green credentials, these products offer a timely solution.

Rexel has been exploring the latest smart technology to offer smart solutions for the energy-conscious homeowner. Amongst the options stocked for its customers include: 

Google Nest

A truly intelligent product, the Nest will learn to program itself after just a week’s use based on the user’s preferences and how rapidly the home heats and cools – and will automatically help to save energy when the homeowner is away.

It is controllable remotely, with home and water temperature quickly and easily adjustable via Google Assistant on a mobile phone, tablet or laptop.

The Energy History feature shows exactly how much energy has been used each day, with a monthly Home Report providing complete details on consumption – perfect for the owner seeking a more sustainable lifestyle. Users are rewarded with an on-screen Leaf when they adjust the temperature to save energy.
