Financial saving: 38 percent on average
Company: BEA hus owns seven properties including apartments, offices and retail units in central Stockholm. The company’s properties are managed by GA -fastigheter AB.
What made you buy shares?
I bought shares in wind turbines because it is renewable electricity and saves money. For me, the environmental argument is
the most important. We must find sustainable energy solutions to safeguard the future and subsequent generations. Renewable energy is an incredibly important piece of the jigsaw in achieving our environmental goals.
Has the purchase of wind shares made a difference to your environmental awareness?
I am happy be really involved and to contribute to the construction of new wind power production in Sweden, which is more environmentally-friendly than many other energy sources. Purchasing wind power shares is part of the environmental approach I’ve adopted.
