New Energy Plus (Electricity)
100% “green” electricity. It costs a bit more as it’s produced from both their windmill’s and other renewable energy sources.
Green Gas (Gas)
Be one of the first in the UK to receive green gas as they plan to create bio-gas from the money made from gas bills.
1. Ecotricity fair price promise – £££
Green energy is always more expensive, right? No, wrong. Ecotricity has afair price promise to match the standard price of the “big six” regional electricity suppliers. For all of those customers, therefore, who get their electricity from one of the “big six” suppliers, it will not costs a penny more to switch to Ecotricity. The price promise also includes green gas, as they will match British Gas for their standard regional gas prices.

The Customer Excellence Award – Growing Business Awards
In the prestigious Growing Business Awards in 2010, they scooped the award for “Customer Excellence”. They were rewarded for their genuine and innovative focus on customers.
When being presented with the award the judges commented, “Ecotricity has pioneered an outstanding level of ‘hand-made’ customer service in an industry sector not know for service excellence.”
Also, in December 2010 Ecotricity came top in an OFGEM (independent industry regulator) customer service survey of all major UK energy suppliers. Not only did they come top but they smashed the opposition, receiving 10 times less complaints than the best performing “big six” dirty electricity providers.
3. The UK’s Greenest Energy Company
Not only has Ecotricity topped the UK green energy league table for years, they continue to invest in building new sources of green electricity. In fact, during 2004 – 2009 they have invested 84p in every £1 they have received from electricity bills, into building more renewable energy sources.
They are driving energy independence and providing jobs in the UK.
They’re latest project is to build green gas mills, with gas produced from organic waste.
