Green energy suppliers in the UK are not as common as you may have been led to believe. Whilst practically all energy companies have some element of green & renewable in them, there is actually only a handful with true eco credentials.
What do we mean by green energy suppliers?
Quite simply, any company who offer 100% green & renewable energy tariffs or – who are committed to investing only in renewable energy sources. Other providers may have a small green element within their energy mix, however, they are still driving the majority of their energy from polluting & shrinking fossil fuels.
Good Energy is the only dedicated 100% renewable electricity provider in the UK. There renewable electricity fuel mix is from wind, small hydro, solar & biomass. They also have Good Energy Gas+ and the revenues they receive from this are invested in more renewable sources.
There customer service team are based in Wiltshire & 90% of the time you will get through to a human straight away from that office. They will even provide you with advice on saving energy around the home. Good Energy has a great community with 1 in 20 of their customers being electricity generators through their Homegrown Energy initiative. We’re sure that you will find something that suits you with Good Energy’s tariffs.
Ecotricity offer both 100% renewable energy and more cheaper tariffs which use green & other energy sources. They have a fair price promise which will match the “big six” on electricity prices. Ecoctricity gas will also match British Gas for their standard regional gas prices.
Ecotricity has excellent customer service with 89% of their customers rating them as “excellent” or “good”. They recently won an award for “Customer Excellence” at the Growing Business Awards 2010. What makes Ecotricity is special is there commitment to building more windmills with the money they receive from their energy bills. In only four years, they have doubled the amount of green energy used in their fuel mix.
