How green are we?

  • Our diagram here gives you an idea of where our energy (and the rest of the UK's) comes from

  • Electricity is generated in lots of different ways – some comes from green sources but some comes from 100% non-renewable. Wherever it starts from, it all ends up going into the National Grid and getting mixed up together – a bit like water in a reservoir.

    We take our energy from the National Grid, so we can’t guarantee that what ends up in your home will be totally green. But if you go with our 100% renewable electricity plan, what we can guarantee is that for every unit you buy from us, we’ll buy one back that’s 100% renewable - and comes with Ofgem’s Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin (REGO) certificate.

    You can see our full Fuel Mix Disclosure for all our energy plans in comparison with the national average here.

    As an energy company, we think we've got a bigger responsibility than most when it comes to the environment – and we don't take it lightly.

     

    That's why we've got a long-standing set up with our friends at Cool Earth, helping to cut global warming. In a nutshell, we donate money to their team so they can keep protecting 100,000 acres of precious rainforest. And that means, just by being with us, you'd be helping too.

     

    We also try to encourage our customers to use less energy (we know it sounds a bit odd coming from us, but we really mean it). Nowadays we're all using 20% more energy than we were 40 years ago (see what that looks like over the decades). So we think it's up to all of us to cut back a bit.
