It doesn’t cost the Earth
Renewable electricity generation emits zero CO2 or other greenhouse gases and its sources quickly replenish so it is a sustainable source of power. Electricity usage in an average UK household accounts for over 1 tonne of CO2 a year.**** By going Greener you’ll have none of that and you’ll have taken an important step towards a more sustainable Britain. More on OVO’s fuel sources here.
Improving local green spaces across the UK
OVO’s Greener Energy plan customers make the I Dig Trees programme possible. Last year, their support saw us to plant over 158,000 trees across the UK, improving over 500 green spaces. Now we’re growing our ambitions. Instead of planting 3 trees per Greener Energy plan customer, we’ll be giving 5 trees a chance to grow. That means that by April 2017, we plan to have planted 250,000 saplings – a fantastic carbon-fighting forest in the making. Learn more about I Dig Trees
