What is green energy?

Wind turbine

Green energy, also referred to as renewable energy, is generated from natural and renewable resources that can be replenished and do not harm the environment — as opposed to being generated by finite resources such as oil or coal that also produce harmful greenhouse gas emissions.

Green energy can be generated from a range of sources, including the tides, the Sun, the wind and more.

Green energy is a particularly appealing concept to many people because, unlike fossil fuels, such as coal and oil, renewable energy sources will not run out and it will not harm the environment in the same way energy generation from fossil fuels does.

Because of this increased demand, green energy suppliers are no longer a niche concept. Most energy suppliers now offer green energy tariffs that offer some level of renewable energy.

Why should I switch to a green energy tariff?

Help the planet

The key draw of a green tariff is in helping the planet in the fight against climate change by powering your home via clean renewable energy rather than harmful fossil fuels.

Save money

Many customers can save money on fixed green energy tariffs when they're compared to standard variable tariffs, which have long been the most expensive tariffs on the market.

Contribute to future green initiatives

The more green tariffs customers sign up to, the more funding can be contributed to renewable energy generation projects around the country.
